What things do you do to motivate yourself to move on and get things done in your time of grief?

I think I'm over the hard part of grieving. I've learned to come to peace with the fact that 2009 happened, even tho I wish it hadn't. I do still miss my dad and grandpa and wish everyday they could have met their 1st grandchild for my dad and 3rd great grandchild for my granddad, which is the part I still struggle with the most knowing my little girl will never get to meet them. As for my two losses, I always have the "what if" questions and scenarios running thru my head if things hadn't gone the way they had, but having my little girl with me now, helps redirect me to what's really important to me right now, which is her. I can't and won't ever forget them, and have a tattoo to memorialize them, but seeing the cute pregnant ladies or the ladies with the little babies, doesn't sting as much as it did. I hope I don't come off completely awful sounding, it's just how I personally was able to grieve and slowly make it to the light at the end of the tunnel.

cleaning, cleaning kills 2 birds with 1 stone, it makes me feel accomplished because the house is clean & it gets the aggression & sadness out!

For me, I feel my biggest motivator is remembering how bad the depression can get if I let it. I have been unmedicated for almost five years and want to remain that way. I never want to let it get like that again.

I can totally relate to this as well. I've only been off meds for a year tho, so you are doing well!

I'm still grieving for my brother, and its been over a year and a half but my heart aches and I can't control my tears most of the time. But the truth is things need to get done and there are people we are responsible for like our parents, spouses, children and even our work. It needs to get done so mostly I just push myself to do things.

Initially, even walking was tough, my body didn't have any strength... but had to be strong for sake of others...
