“Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.” – Norman Cousins
I read this quote and thought, I hurt too badly to even try to agree with that! As some of you know, I lost my Dad, my 17 year old dog and my Momzi over a 4 year period. I was numb, hurt and still grieving from each loss. It was my lowest rock bottom yet! For Momzi, her cancer had been in remission for 3 years. But it returned with a vengeance! I loved pampering her as I did before by get her 3 heated blankets to cuddle up in, give her soothing music to listen to and be there at her every beckon call. This time, I was not able to do this for her. I lost her not even 2 months after the cancer returned. I felt like I was dying myself. If I am honest, I was dying.
Have you ever experienced loss, also? It is my prayer that you haven’t, but if you have lived, you have loss. Have you ever had something happen in your life where you realized that you were stuck? Stuck is stuck, no matter how you arrived there.
While the hardest thing in my life was losing my loved ones, I now agree that the greatest loss is to live a life where your goals, dreams and aspirations die inside of you.
