My mother died 2 weeks ago. My world has been turned upside down and now I have a gaping black hole where she used to be. I don’t know how to move on and I don’t want to. She was everything to me and I lived for her. Nothing can fix this and I feel alone and terrified.
For the first time in 7 years I’ve taken an entire chunk of time to do absolutely nothing. I have lolled around our house, wandered the streets, parks and reserves with our beautiful puppy and taken in the world. It is time to stop the glorification of busy and enjoy the simplest things in life.
