For all those that have ceased to be.
That have stopped.
That are now gone and out of reach.
Embrace the emptiness. And the silence that inevitably follows.
As cruel as it may feel, hold on to it.
Just for a moment.
As it exposes your weaknesses, you are at the same time, reinforcing your defenses.
Embrace the melancholy, allow yourself to wallow in it for a while. It's okay to be engulfed by it, its intensity.
It's all part of the process.
It's always darkest before the dawn they say.
Μεγάλη Παρασκευή. It has such a sad ring to it.
It's a day that even the Holy Mary was just a wrecked mother that lost Her son.
I guess it's a day to put things into perspective, on a very somber level.
And ask yourself; what's important?
What really matters?
Am I content?
Have I done all there was to do?
Have I said the "I'm sorrys" and "Thank yous" I owe?
And finally, what can I do to become better than yesterday?
Sleep on it. You don't need to have all the answers right now.
Just the right mindset.
