I declare, I am not dead.
I am not gone from your life forever.
I have merely gone underground.
Spiritually, God has me close.
I am in a Holy Space.
Emotionally, I am fragile, weak and have the gift to cry easily.
I am tender-hearted.
Physically, I take care of my body with intention, allowing myself to heal and feel.
I am hurting all over.
Give me your grace for my indecision, my confusion.
My mind is numb.
A fog hovers around me.
I can’t ‘work it out’.
I must just be.
“Despite all appearances…nature is not dead in winter-it has gone underground to renew itself and prepare for spring. Winter is a time when we are admonished, and even inclined, to do the same for ourselves.”
– Parker Palmer, Let Your Life Speak
