I've been working on my 3-book novel series, which is something else I have been doing to keep my mind busy. The other distraction I've been trying to adopt has been coming here and posting a journal entry once a week. The problem has been that I continually forget. So, I'm going to make an event in my calendar on my phone to post here on a daily basis.

Theme of my series is fantasy adventure.

Diana,

I'm just now getting to the point where I can actually grieve my father. When Jeremy passed away (this was not intentional), it was like the idea of grieving dad took a back seat to the grief over my husband. Problem is, it's been 2 years next month since daddy passed, and I really don't know how to handle that pain.

I've always known the love of a parent is completely different than the love you have for your spouse and children, but I had no idea the mourning process would place me on a totally different emotional plateau than the one I had been on with my husband's death. I guess, now is better than never. (I'm sorry, dad.)  I Ieel extremely guilty for it taking so long for me to grieve my father.

It's nice to have a distraction.  What is the theme of your 3 book novel series?

Figuring out how to not allow my grief to be my identity

I think I have known for awhile that my grief is not supposed to be my identity. I think I know that my identity should be defined by the human I have become, despite my loss and my grief. However, trying to figure out who I really am seems to be both a struggle, and it's scary. I feel like I can only identify some of the things that I am and am not. I try to not highlight the things I don't really like about me. I try to focus on the positive things I know I am. But, I spend too much time with…See More

Healthy Grief or Not?

I'm not sure if I am grieving in a positive and healthy way. All I really know for sure is that I miss my family, ...especially my sister, Melissa. Melissa had a way of making me feel important, needed, loved, cared for, special, and she had a way of lighting up a room. I am having difficulty with life in general without her. The world seems so much smaller and darker since she passed. Not near as light-hearted or inviting as before.My sister taught me to be more accepting of people who are…See More
