From “Everything is gone!” to “Thank you loss!”


The trauma of loss could be quite devastating; especially when the loss came most unexpectedly.

Loss could at times be life-threatening at two levels:

  • When the loss involves the very things that our livelihood depend on; e.g. loss of a business or loss of a job.
  • When our reaction to loss is such that we lose all sense of coping; and perhaps even the passion to live.

A few days ago when I endured some devastating loss, I felt so hopeless. I lost count how many times I uttered the words: “Everything is gone!” However, thanks to the small voice (the Coach behind the scene) that kept asking: “Everything? Really?”

Three days after the loss I was at a completely different space – the space of “Thank you loss!”

The loss now feels more like a gift, a wake-up call that came at the right time – before it was too late. I am now much happier that this loss arrived at this stage of my life, my profession and my business. I now cringe at the thought of having met this loss a few months or even years later from now.

What an amazing transition? From “Everything is gone!” to “Thank you loss!”
