The traditional season of New Years resolutions is approaching. This year, I am going to beat the rush.
When my husband died five years ago, my counselor asked me to define healthy grieving. I came up with:
1. Tell the truth.
2. Feel the feelings.
3. Celebrate the good stuff.
4. Forgive the bad stuff.
5. Live as fully as possible.
I haven't mastered any of those intentions, so there is no need to change them anytime soon. Who knows? They might turn out to be important keys to healthy living.
