Here is all I could come up with:
I had to be still before I could move forward. And in my stillness, I grasped acceptance.
What? Yes, I had to be still before I could take my next big steps in life. With any loss, you need time to process the event, adjust your dreams and learn to find a new normal. I needed time to grieve, to regroup, to breathe…. But I mainly needed time to accept what had happened. During my time of stillness, I was able to accept the decision I had made. Once I could accept my adoption decision fully, I was able to move forward. I was able to find peace and I was able to empower myself to move forward.
Do you agree?
