Episode 177: Groundhog Day

When I noticed that a podcast release day fell on Groundhog Day and it would be on a day when I would be recording with Gwen, I knew what the topic had to be. To me, grief feels a lot like the movie, Groundhog Day which was released 30 years ago. In the movie, Bill Murray gets trapped in a time loop where he needs to relive Groundhog Day each day with the same events happening over and over. Grief often feels that way. We feel like each day is exactly the same. Other people move on, but we are stuck in a continuous time loop.
In the early parts of the movie, the main character, Phil, gets more and more frustrated with his day repeating again and again. He becomes first confused, then angry, and at times, even despondent. That feels so much like grief. We cycle through all of these emotions but keep having to live the same nightmare day after day. 
By the end of the movie Groundhog Day, Phil eventually learns to make each day a little bit better than the last one. His heart ever so slowly begins to change and heal. This is what we can hope for in our own grief journeys. Although each day feels the same, ever so slowly, we can and do change. Through lots of hard work, we very can begin to see positive changes return to our lives and those around us.
