If you’ve followed the blog for a while, you may know I’m a big fan of the mantra “this too shall pass.” Repeating the phrase hundreds of times has literally taken me out of some of my darkest moments.

Today, I found myself repeating it most of the day. The loss of my dog Poka is still incredibly hard and I miss her terribly.

I know this is all just temporary, but for now, I will continue to repeat the phrase to help me pass through this incredibly difficult time.
