100 Days of Grief Ally

Wow, as of yesterday, Grief Ally, has been out in the world for you all to access for 100 days.

100 DAYS of Grief Ally!!

It has been a whirlwind, to say the least. I am so very grateful for every message, review, comment, and person who has picked up a copy.

If you watched the trailer for Grief Ally, you’ll know that I never thought I would write a book like this. I didn’t want to be one of “those people” who shared their loss in a super public way but it became apparent, very very early in my grief, that we do not know how to support bereaved people in our culture. We ask people to reconcile their losses behind closed doors until they are ready to “be themselves again” and rejoin the world of forward motion as though we are unchanged by our grief and will live forever. That is not the world I want to live in.

That is not a world that I am able to live in.

So, here I am, trying to change the culture of grief support by sharing my story, perspective, and expertise. Does it feel uncomfortable at times? Hell yes, but then I remind myself that it’s uncomfortable because we’ve been conditioned to keep our grief quiet. I will not keep my grief quiet. I will not hide it. I believe grief that it is worthy of my time, and your attention. We can’t fix grief but we can work towards building a culture where we can hold it comfortably.

Thank you for being with me on this journey. Cheers to 100 more days of change for the better <3

As I Live and Grieve: Filling the Gap in Grief Resources

As I Live and Grieve: Filling the Gap in Grief Resources

Grieving is a painful journey, one best not taken alone. Contrary to some perceptions, the process of grieving after the death of a loved one is not a simple step by step process. Nor is it the same for everyone.

It’s time for Grief to come out of the basement or wherever we have stuffed it to avoid talking about it. That’s why we started this podcast. The only way we can continue to put one foot in front of the other while living and grieving at the same time is to be able to talk about our memories, be honest about our feelings and support others that are walking a similar path. Less isolation, more community. We hope you will join us.

Listen to the podcast, As I Live and Grieve, available through your favorite app.
