1. Introduction/Our Story
This topic came about as we’ve been thinking about the fact that not only is it New Year, but it is also a new decade.
Thinking of how we would get through this year, we know it will require many things, but strength is one of them. This is why we chose to cover this topic. We also want to try our very best to move forward with whatever 2020 has in store as positively as possible

3. Strength and Grief
“Grief is a deep sorrow we experience that often results from a loss of some kind. It could be a loss of a loved one or the loss of something that we deeply cherished or cared for. That loss can often lead to profound feelings of sadness, emptiness, yearning, despair, loneliness, and helplessness”.
During the time that our Dad was hospitalised in September 2016, we often felt helpless. We felt this way when we were communicating our concerns to the hospital staff where our Dad was an inpatient, but yet it felt as though our concerns were not taken into consideration.
Since our Dad has passed away, we feel helpless way too often. This is for numerous reasons:
- Our Dad unfortunately passing away
- Dealing with the probate Process
- Dealing with the complaint against the hospital in which our Dad was an inpatient
Despite the many times we feel low, we try our very best to turn these situations around so that things can work in our favour, and we always try our best to remain positive and hopeful.

5. Our Final Thoughts
We are learning that we are on a journey. Along the way we experience highs and lows, feel helpless feel lost. In those low moments we acknowledge how we are feeling, and then we try our best to take time to pause, reflect and refocus so that we can move forward with what might be next. At the same time, we try our best to find a balance. which means we also try our best to enjoy and be in the moment of happy times.
