The meandering thoughts of a modern-day hearth witch.

Journeys


I have struggled to find words of my own throughout this toughest of weeks. My dear dad departed this world, taking another path to continue his journey. 

Myself and my family watched and waited, praying for him to find peace. Each moment of our day became another step closer to a new, alien life; every word spoken was another emotion experienced. We have all grown and changed within this short time. 

Seeing a loved one battle with an illness which robbed them of the ability to experience life as they once did makes my future path all the more clear. I shall no longer put off those things I want to do; I don't want to say they can wait another year. Life is for living and precious little time we have to do it. 

I will spend more time with my family.
I will enjoy my happy, healthy relationship.
I will make the effort to be creative and express my thoughts.
I will find the time to relax and nurture myself.
I will love with my whole heart.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my father just a year ago. Grief is a very heavy emotion....one that you don't know if you yourself will survive.....but somehow we do.
