“If we do not grieve for what we miss, we do not praise what we love” Martin Prechtel If you don’t grieve it means it didn’t have a meaning for you from the beginning.

Today, I was talking to a friend about my recent writing “Pain”, and all the questions I had regarding pain. She told me why don’t you honor your grieve. Till that moment I never though of pain as grieve. She said you are missing things and It is okay. Grieve is part of acknowledging the pain, so you can say “pain I see you”.

I am a super grateful person, for so many things. For example, having the worlds best friends in my life. My friends are truly the best and I appreciate each and everyone of them. I have a deep connection with nature, that is another thing that I am super grateful for, my family, prosperity, health… This list can go on forever. Being grateful is one of the reasons I don’t acknowledge my pains. But what comes to me now is how about being grateful for my pains as well. It means I am alive, I am feeling, I am freaking crying. As Martin Prechtel said make sure you grieve the way you look ugly after.

Also, today I saw tree of life in so many places, and I kept asking what do you want to tell me. The best part I got a tree of life bracelet as a gift today. I probably will know the reason when its time.

So, I am gonna be grateful for pains and tree of life.

  1. Sara, I agree with Martin Prechtel’s sentiment about grief. These past three years, I have been grieving for the loss of a very dear friend to cancer, Brazil, Guyana, and now Planet Earth in the face of our climate emergency. I grieve because I care for what we humans have lost and are losing.

    Thanks for the follow 🙂

      I am so sorry for you loss, It’s really hard to lose a dear friend.
      And, I totally can relate on what you mentioned on grieving for planet earth. I think that’s communal. It makes me so sad when I see dead bees in pathways. Lets honor our grief 🙂
