Loss …

Well, my life has done a complete 360. I can honestly say that before March 10th I lived in a small bubble; a bubble where all the other persons who never had a personal tragedy close to home resided. You might remember in this post I mentioned that I was exhausted and one of those reasons was because of the hospital visits that I did that week. My sister, my dear sister, to whom I was so close unfortunately passed away. Just typing those words take a lot out of me. I am not sure if I will be talking about this on the blog, particularly since my usually bubbly personality has been completely deflated by this enormous loss in my life and I simply do not have the words or the ability to speak about it.

Perhaps the emotions attached to grief are best explained in this post. She eloquently expressed what I cannot yet say.

In any event, I decided that since I have always loved travel and documenting my life, I will give this blog more of a direction. I need an escape and writing may be just what the doctor or my therapist ordered.

I contemplated not posting about the subject at all, I couldn’t write another blog post without acknowledging the biggest loss I have ever faced. Truthfully, I don’t want or need pity but I would welcome encouragement.

To those who are no longer in that tragedy-free bubble, I feel for you and for those who still reside within the bubble, cherish every moment. It goes too soon.

I am currently broken but in her memory, I will attempt to pick up the pieces. RIP Kerry, I will always love you!
