Embracing our feelings

Recently I watched a movie that touched my heart. It has to do with letting go of masked emotions and embracing feelings as part of life. The movie is “A Little Bit of Heaven” with Kate Hudson.
Her free-spirit attitude is refreshing until her life has a 180 turn and…she needed to face a painful transition. She is diagnosed with cancer and an array of emotions start to arise. Until she is able to face them, talk about them and even, make amends, she could find peace in her heart.
I stayed reflecting on this message and thought how important it is to express our feelings (Principle IV of The Eleven Principles of Transformation system*). It happens at times that we are so wrapped up in continuing our life as we know it that we do not realize something has changed and we must acknowledge it. Many times this is painful…and requires courage from our part…but it is until we accept the situation we are confronting, that we can do something about it.
The story in the movie totally resonated with my own philosophy when facing a loss or difficult transitions. It involves all these elements:
Expression of feelings
Sharing with others
Live the now…
*The 11 Principles of Transformation” is a system included in my book “Transform your Loss. Your Guide to Strength and Hope.”
Remember….as you transform your loss you can change your life!
Have a beautiful day,
