Good GriefWe all know what "good grief" means, right? It's an ironic expression that says things aren't right. There's nothing "good" about it. But unless you grieve, you can't really love or embrace life. 

I experienced some good grief today. It felt good to experience the sadness. And suddenly my writing and conversations began to flow again. 

Evan Hodkins says writer's block is really an authenticity block. Once you connect with your authentic self, writing flows again. Of course, we keep outgrowing our previous selves, and we can get behind in knowing who the latest version of ourselves is. So we have to keep recalibrating. 

Good grief isn't the only way to recalibrate, but it certainly is a good one.
