Happy.... Grateful... Loved... Excited.... Hopeful
At the moment, those five words seem to sum me up best. I don't know that I would have used those same five words a year ago and maybe not a few months ago. I am finally starting to learn to cope with my brothers murder. I know I will never truly get over it, but I have found ways to manage the anxiety and loss. I think I am finally seeing my life with direction and purpose. I feel that is largely in part to all of wonderful people I am surrounded by. There are those I have known a lifetime and others barely a moment, but all have had a positive impact.
I am happy that I have a feeling of purpose, and that I am no longer consumed with anger and hate.
I am so very grateful to my family and friends so standing by me the last few years. I know it hasn't been easy and I was exhausting to deal with. You are loved and appreciated more than you may ever know.
