These are the words I told my boys yesterday morning over breakfast, as I gently broke the news to them. It’s the only words that I knew in my heart rang true, because simply put: I couldn’t tell them everything is going to be okay, because I simply don’t believe that myself right now.
My soul is still in shock.
Heartbroken. Sad. Disillusioned. I know many hearts are tender, raw, scared and anxious. But before our hearts can heal, they need time to feel. And so I’m giving myself enough space to feel all the feels. I encourage you to please do the same.
Take all the time you need, and then, when it is time, and you will know when it is time, you and I and other brave warriors, together we will heed our own advice, rise up, stand tall, be kind, be brave and shatter the fuck out of FEAR.
Until then remember…
