Feel Your F&*@ing Feels – WHY!?!?!?

I received an email earlier this week from a very nice person. Basically, it said “I’ve really appreciated your advice and words of comfort in the past but I’m bowing out now. I do not appreciate the f-word being used in daily life – especially in my grief journey – and cannot condone the practice.”My […]

Grief Doesn’t Take a Holiday – Don’t Let it Derail YOUR Holidays

We’re less than eight weeks from the beginning of 2022…Can you believe it?But first, we have to enjoy, entertain….and just plain get through…all the festivities (and parties, and get-togethers, and happy hours, and ‘quick visits’, and shopping, and cooking….and eating, you can’t forget all the eating…)Over the last 12+ holiday seasons I’ve ‘celebrated’ without my […]

Death Positivity

Last week, I was speaking about Sharing Solace at an event with an extra-long Q&A section. {Or, as I like to refer to it ‘Stump the Chump’.} And, one of the last questions came in the form of a statement:The ‘question’ caught me a little off guard. I’d never really thought too hard about before […]

I can’t be the only one…

…or maybe I am…My mind is in a constant state of information overload and I’m perpetually maximized. I thought I was a decent human being…but I’m second-guessing every action I’ve ever taken. I even feel like I’m having an out of body experience: an outsider looking in.I’m paralyzed with responsibility and opportunity.I’ve started writing my feelings […]
