Sadness: 3 Day Quote Challenge

Today I feel a great deal of sadness due to the recent events in Paris. I was challenged by Stephanie Pharrell . She wrote today challenging me to share three quotes on sadness. It has been a terrible week. Not just for Paris . Beirut, Lebanon was also attacked. Killing is never the answer. Hurting anyone is never the answer… with that in mind I share these quotes on Sadness. I am doing this from my mobile. Please forgive the brevity. All my love and thoughts of healing go to all those impacted by any and all attacks . Please, end this violence. I have shared my story before.

Three Day Quote Challenge- Sadness

“I wasn’t prepared for the fact that grief is so unpredictable. It wasn’t just sadness, and it wasn’t linear. Somehow I’d thought that the first days would be the worst and then it would get steadily better – like getting over the flu. That’s not how it was.”
Meghan O’Rourke

“It’s usually a big kind of vent of frustration or anger or sadness that puts me in the right frame of mind to write. It’s such a cliche to say that artists write when they’re down, but it’s true for me. It’s a relief to get out what’s eating away at my heart or my soul or my head.”
Ellie Goulding

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”

Mahatma Ghandi

I challenge the following three bloggers:

  1. Death is weird. We’ve lost three family members in 5 months. I thought I would be totally depressed, but I found myself laughing and crying. It sent me into a vortex of emotions. Now that it’s been a month since my dad died, I don’t cry as often although I miss him terribly.
    What happened in Paris punched me in the gut. It made me sick.

    1. When my grandma died I was numb. I don’t reneged crying. I was pregnant at the time. When I gave birth I found myself mourning her . At that point I was left with the realization that she would never know my children. When we buried her it was gloomy, cloud coverage. I kept thinking she’s wish the sun was out. Then suddenly the storm clouds moved & we had sun as well as a rainbow. That’s how grieving feels to me. Stormy, heavy…then there’s light & hope. What is happening in the world is a punch to the kidneys. Your dad-he’s with you. Especially, when you laugh.
