Coping in the Present

I am trying to find ways to cope with my grief. I will attend a support group once a new session starts. Hopefully in a couple of weeks.
I will start cleaning out my husband’s dresser drawers and closets when all my sons are in town.
So I do have plans, but nothing now. I guess it just isn’t the right time. Perhaps going slow is the best way to do it.
So I continue to read books and articles on grief. I watch YouTube videos on bereavement support. I have a workbook where I can write my thoughts and feelings. They are all helpful. Being alone helps me to take one thing at a time.
But being alone also gives me a lot of time to think. Too much time to think.
That can be both good and bad.
So I am living on a roller coaster. Up one day. Down the next.
The future is scary. The recent past is painful. I am learning to live in the present moment.
The best place for me right now.
