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.
