If you’ve experienced a loss, you’ve likely experienced some form of shock along the way. Even if you see the loss coming, little can prepare you for when you actually lose a loved one. Or, even endure an unforeseen breakup, lose a job, or something else entirely. All of these and more deserve to be recognized and can be equally shocking! But fear not, my friend… there are ways to work through this shock and find s...

Today I wanted to have a quick conversation about why alone time is important in our grieving journey, and in our healing journey. We're going to talk about seven reasons I feel this way, both as a Grief and Transformational Life Coach and a fellow griever. I know we can sometimes want to be surrounded by people as we're grieving, and I always encourage that! Having a solid support system is critical. But the thing is, the practi...

I am incredibly honored to share today's guest with you guys. I’ve been a fan of hers for a LONG time now, y’all! I connected with her through Instagram, back when I first started following her early in the days of Losses Become Gains. I absolutely fell in love with her content and her beautiful writing, and now I have the privilege of sharing her with YOU today! I have no doubt you are going to love her as well. Tod...

As if grief isn't difficult enough, insensitive, ignorant, and unnecessary comments are, sadly, a common occurrence for so many of us. These kinds of remarks will likely come our way at some point as we're grieving. Things like…

  • You should be doing [fill in the blank].
  • You need to let it go.
  • People speaking on behalf of our loved one who has died, like putting words in...

I can’t believe we’ve reached 50 EPISODES of the Life With Grief Podcast, my friends!   To commemorate this in a big way, I’m sharing a personal story that is close to my heart—the (very traumatic) birth story of our daughter, Audrey, in January 2024.   I have to be honest, I was really going back and forth on sharing this. There was definitely a time in the last two or three months where I didn’t want to relive this experience and...

I’m so excited to introduce this “coaching series”! If you haven’t heard, you can now leave me a voice note at speakpipe.com/lifewithgrief. The purpose is to have a safe space where you can share what's on your heart and mind, ask a question for me to answer here on the podcast, or send a message of hope to fellow grievers. I'm so excited to make this a more regular thing, but of course, that means I want and need to hear from YOU...

Grieving and coping with a loss while still having to work do NOT mix, amirite? This can be so, so difficult, so we’re getting into it and talking about it today. Having to continue showing up at our job as we’re going through a loss is by far one of the most physically and emotionally taxing things that someone grieving has to go through. We might not have the option to stop working as we need to support ourselves or our family,...

I wanted to hold a special space on the podcast for a loss that’s very important to recognize: the loss of a job.     Losing a job is HARD! And let’s be real, whether it’s one you genuinely enjoy or one you’re sort of “meh” about, the shock, discomfort, anxiety, and worry this can cause is undeniable.   The most stress-inducing aspect of losing a job for many of us is probably the need for a stable income to support yourself or you...

Let’s bust some common grief myths today, my friend! We’re chatting with Shay Wingate. She’s a Licensed Therapist and Grief Coach, and a fellow griever just like me (and probably you!). She has actually graced the podcast in the past, and I’m super excited to have her back for this little series that we're doing on grief myths we constantly hear about as Grief Educators, and grievers ourselves. We wanted to make the...

Do you ever feel like you're moving backward in your grief? Worry not, my friend. You're not, and we're going to chat about why in this episode! I’ve had countless people come to me with feeling like they’re moving backward in their grief journey, and this is a legitimate concern! Why? 1) It’s stressful! We worry that there’s something wrong with us or we're "grieving wrong". 2) There's concern this is going to be a permanent s...

There are a lot of misconceptions about how we feel and process our emotions, but this is a massive key to coping with our grief and unlocking this full, intentional life we want to live that I’m always going on about! I wanted this quick conversation to be about why we grieve the way we do. Why it’s so emotional, why we can feel stuck, why it can feel irrational. We’re not just validating your feelings here, we’re d...

Having to make decisions when a loved one’s health is declining, or even after they've died, is not only difficult but is something we can question over and over again. We can question whether our decisions about things are the right ones through the fog of our grief, and not even want the weight of that responsibility, right? So, if we’re faced with decisions like this, what do we do? What do we do if we HAVE to make decisions, b...

I’m thrilled to share the stage today with Filmmaker, Actor, Singer, and Certified Grief Educator, Grant Garry. Grant is the director of the documentary "Meet Me Where I Am”, which explores the topic of grief through individual stories of loss, love, and hope. It also focuses on how to "be there" for grievers, and what to do/say and what not to do/say. It features some really incredible people and voices in the grief space, and e...

I'm so excited to bring you a special episode this week in honor of me turning 33 on February 2nd: 3 Things I've Learned at 33 Years Old.   Truthfully, there are a lot of things I've learned in my 33 years here Earthside so far. But, given I can't talk your ear off for too long, I narrowed it down to three major life lessons that I can't wait to share with you.    Without giving too much away up front, we're digging into topics lik...

    While we continue to welcome the new year, I wanted to use this opportunity to talk about the importance of creating a routine. But, as we always do, we're putting a griefy spin on this topic!

    Your gain will be to understand how and why a routine is so critical, especially for those who are grieving. And yes, there can definitely be some major benefits to this… it's not simply to add more to your heavy plate!

    It's officially a new year, a new breath of fresh air, new vibes, maybe a renewed sense of self or reset moving forward… Or, perhaps you’re still struggling with some grief and loss from the previous year or even further back than that. Maybe this is still holding you up a bit, and you’re feeling stuck going into this year. That’s okay! Just because a new year arrives doesn’t mean all of us feel this blank slate. We don't always ...
