Be a source of love

“We must first have the desire and then the intention and commitment to be a source of love- this means that rather than waiting for the world to be more loving, we decide that we will be the first one to reach out and act loving- on matter what!”- Richard Carlson

Seek out the comfort and help you need

“Healing from a loss is a natural process of life- just as healing from a broken bone is too. Knowing this in the midst of pain is of great comfort. If it’s at all possible, don’t be alone. Seek out the comfort and help you need and deserve. This is not the time to be brave or strong. Instead it’s the time to reach out to others and be open to receive their kindness.”
