Grief has no set timeline.
It's length, ups, and downs are different for everyone.
We were at an art festival this weekend in southern Idaho. But this wasn't your everyday art fair - it was with a goal of raising awareness for mental health!
Project Grief had several art stations and invited the community to participate. The one pictured here asked participants to choose a color and draw a line representing their grief process from the time of loss ("then") to the present day.
As you can see, every single person's process was different.There is so much grace and freedom in seeing just how different each journey is.
I think that's because when we look at these drawings, we see that those burdens of "I should be able to handle this by now," and "I shouldn't be feeling this still," etc. are no longer valid. We don't have to compare ourselves to our neighbors, friends, or even fellow family members. Knowing each person has a different journey enables you to honor your own process, and helps you respect others' processes as well.
Project Grief is a monthly subscription to art lessons and other resources that will teach you how to use art as a tool in your recovery after loss.
We know that some of you might need time to process, and will need to take it slow. Others of you are raring to go - you can complete all the lessons in one or two months, and that's awesome!
Monthly enrollment makes access to Project Grief's awesome resources more affordable for you. Plus, smaller monthly payments means while you're shopping for our course's basic art supplies, you might have extra moolah for other cool artsy things...
You can cancel your subscription anytime, no questions asked. Of course we'll be sad to see you go, but that means you're feeling better! That's a win for us!
So what are you waiting for? Take the plunge with us this month!
