Weary & Burdened Ep. 019: What Day is it Anyways?
Studies show we lose our ability to effectively measure speed while driving through fog. We’re not able to use landmarks as reference and if we don’t pay extra attention to the speedometer we can drive much faster than safe or intended.
Driving through fog is also exhausting. It takes an abundance of caution and focus to safely navigate in such conditions. This hypervigilance is tiring.
Grief, to me, is like driving in fog. There’s no reference points for traversing through such an experience. Life passes by much quicker than you expect, much of it going unnoticed. Grief is exhausting too. Wading through the dense fog of grief takes a mental, physical and emotional toll. Before you know it, you’ve lost your way and time has gotten away from you.
