In April I delved deep into a handful of change making stories with some bright minds in business, entrepreneurship, entertainment and wellness. The conversations helped to design the pieces I wrote for “Psychology Today” and “Katie Couric Media”, shaped some of the intimate conversations I had with others, and assisted my clients in unlocking their unbounded potential.
As someone who experienced suffering related to an early loss (my father died in 1979 when I was two weeks shy of turning five), I can tell you one of the hardest things to do is foster a healthy story around my grief. And one thing I did for myself, and what I help others do is shape a narrative in such a way that promotes resilience and positive change. This doesn’t mean I don’t value or speak the truth about loss. What I’ve found to benefit me and what others told me assists them in their healing is bringing a high level perspective to this issue, along with creating a meaningful story. It isn’t instant but personal profound growth and inner peace takes work.
Many people tell me a professional told them they have “Prolonged Grief”, and in my newest Psychology Today piece, I share what it is and what to do. Also, delighted to say Psychology Today listed it as an “Essential Read”.
Doing certain things post- loss can help you or someone you love feel safe and secure. Last month, I had the honor of being asked to write this piece for Katie Couric’s newsletter. It is a uniquie kind of check list to give you guidance for doing the right things after the loss of a loved one.
And this free resource guide, called “The Game Plan” (offered by my publisher as a download) for helping you or your loved one post- loss is my way of thanking you for dropping into my website.
