After dealing with my own sickness this week, I was reminded of the power of gratitude. Today I share with you about my own journey of “saying goodbye” to my sadness.

There was one day specifically that was really hard for me. We have several friends who are losing loved ones and even sick themselves. I found myself going into a dark sadness. I allowed myself that time to hold space for those emotions. At the end of the day, I realized that I needed to shift out of that sadness for my own well being, so I had to say goodbye.

There is a time and place for everything. I even thanked my sadness because it has a purpose in life as well.  I realized more than ever that I have the power to choose. Sometimes we need to choose sadness and other times we need to say goodbye to it. We have to leave the dark places and choose gratitude.

What about you? Have you allowed space for sadness? How are you processing through what is going on into the world? We would love to hear from you and be a part of your community! Find us on Facebook, Hope to Recharge. Because as always, together is better!

My Poem:

Tonight I decided:

To say goodbye to sadness, 

To thank it for coming in to hold space for my pain, for existing when I need comfort and support. 

For letting me practice the concept of holding space for others’ pain, for understanding how life is so unpredictable, for giving us time to process.

Now it’s time for me to welcome light and joy,

To focus on my blessings,

To continue counting my blessings,

To invite much more blessing and healing into the world,

So I can beg God to send healing light through gratitude and not through pain and anger.

So my kids can be happy when mommy is happy, 

So I can focus on my inner strength and continuing to stay mentally healthy,

I now choose to live with abundance and not sadness.

I choose to welcome the bigger meaning behind something I don’t understand instead of being frustrated that I don’t understand. 

I am grateful that I have a choice.

A choice to choose happiness.

A choice to smile about what is right here, right now. 

A choice to live this very moment with love and happiness.

A choice to bring comfort to my broken heart. 

A choice to accept that I don’t understand and I probably will never understand everything and that is okay.

A choice to send much love and hope through energy when I cannot do it physically.

A choice to turn to God for love like a little girl wanting a hug from Daddy when she feels scared.

A choice to be ok.

I’m smiling and crying and that’s OK!

I’m welcoming lots of inner strength.



With Lots of love
