Grieving Through the Holidays

The holidays are gonna be weird this year. I don’t think there is any way around that. We won’t be traveling like usual. Events will be shorter, smaller, and mostly outside. There will be far less hugging……but, if I’m being honest…they’re not that much different from the decade worth of holidays that came before it […]

You’ll be FIIIIIIIIIIIINE: Impact Bias & the 3 Month Rule

I haven’t really talked about it a lot lately…but…Over the last several weeks (Ok, like all summer #thanksCOVID) I’ve been compiling amazing information, research, examples, and exercises around grief, resilience, happiness, and mindfulness. I actually found an amazing series of books by the Harvard Business Review that has sent me down the research rabbit hole…and, […]

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’m a podcast lover…ok, I’m a podcast binge-er. {…I devoured Serial in 2 sittings, Ted Radio Hour is on constant loop in my car…} But, I’d put off listening to Terrible, Thanks for Asking.Why? I think the answer is in the title. It’s about a real woman who has real {hard} conversations with other real […]

Lead Vests and Soap Bubbles

I promise, stick with me…Yesterday was the 9th anniversary of my Madelyn’s death. I don’t care how well I’m ‘handling it’ leading up to May 20th – this day sends me into a tailspin and I go deep into my mind rethinking everything that was done {and not done} during my pregnancy, in the hospital, […]

When You Should Journal

The short answer? You should journal when you least want to. Period. End of sentence.Oh, you want a real, more thorough answer? Fine then. Journaling allows you to deeply think about your thoughts and feelings while keeping them somewhere you can refer back to in the future {and to see how far you’ve come}.I find […]
