National College Colors Day/National Grief Awareness Day

As if we needed a reason - just because right ? - today is National College Colors Day. So, get out your Red and Black and start stylin' and profilin'. This is an easy one.

A not so easy one might be National Grief Awareness Day, which recognizes that the time it takes to heal from loss doesn’t have a prescribed course and is a reminder closure comes in many forms. When a loved one dies, the void they leave affects everyone differently.

Throughout the day, take stock of those in your life who have been affected by a form of loss. The death of a loved one, a close friend or enduring an extreme change in their lifestyle can trigger grief. When we lose the stability of shelter, a job or a routine we have known for years, we suffer a type of loss that requires closure. Some adjust to these changes easily, and others take time to become familiar with new routines.

Offer to listen to a friend or ask them to join you for a coffee or tea. Send a message letting them know they are never far from your mind. Then, set a date for another visit. If you find you are suffering from grief, know that it’s natural. You’re not alone, and it’s okay to ask for help if you feel your grief is overwhelming.

If you've suffered a loss, hang in there. Many on this board are with you.
