A person that I cared about passed away unexpectedly recently. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Dealing with grief and loss is challenging. I deal with it quite frequently in my role as a facilitator for healing in the Emergency Room and Wilderness Therapy. I help clients and family members navigate the difficult process of coping with grief after a devastating loss. Despite the knowledge, training, and personal wisdom that goes into successfully helping individuals and families heal; when loss hits close to home — it still hits hard.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ What do you do after unimaginable loss?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I don’t think there is one right answer, but I do know there is one entity that I can always go to that can be a limitless vessel for unloading my burdens, pain, and suffering. She provides the space for my healing and self-care practices. A place where I can practice gratitude in both things big and small.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Gratitude that I have the resources available to not have to worry about clean water or going hungry.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Gratitude for this healthy body that has taken me to many beautiful places.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Gratitude for having a camera to document the meaningful people and places in my life.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Gratitude for a job that allows me to be a light in a person's or family’s darkest times.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Gratitude for each new day and sunrise in this beautiful journey called life.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Thank you Mother Nature for being there for me.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ •⁣⁣ ⁣ •⁣⁣ ⁣ •⁣⁣ ⁣ •⁣⁣ ⁣ •⁣⁣ ⁣ #thetrek #hiking #findyourpark #adventure #travel #wanderlust #backpacking #optoutside #adventurethatislife #neverstopexploring #adventureaddiction #exploremore #natgeo #gnarcissistic #trailchat #liveyouradventure #natureporn #wildernessculture #appalachiantrail #takemebackpacking⁣⁣ ⁣ #welivetoexplore #bpmag #utah #awakethesoul #forceofnature #thegreatoutdoors #southwest #feedyouradventure #mothernature #desert

I lost my best friend 4 months ago in a murder/suicide, and it’s been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with. I still haven’t recovered. Thank you for sharing this. I will read this regularly.
