Taking Death to Parties

Taking Death to Parties

We hope you find this post by Maryanne Pope useful; Maryanne is the CEO of Pink Gazelle Productions and the author of “A Widow’s Awakening.”

Okay, I will keep this grief-related blog short – partly because people’s attention spans this time of year are remarkably short (and I speak from experience on this) but mostly because the message I have to communicate (also learned from experience, unfortunately) is REALLY important.

If you have recently lost a loved one and this is your first Christmas without that person:

Coincidence or Connection – How Grief Can Awaken Our Capacity to Notice Connections Between Seemingly Unrelated Events

Have you ever experienced an event that struck you as just a bit odd at the time – and then something else happens later and you look back on that original event and can’t help but wonder if it was connected in some way?

Having A Bad Day?

Having A Bad Day?

Bad days – we all have them. One day everything is fine and the next everything looks grey and sad. The good news is that pain, while soul-crushing, is manageable. The pain can steal my peace but it does leave behind experience.
