While Grief is a natural and normal response to loss, it is also greatly misunderstood by those of us who are grieving and those who wish to support us.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In this live I’ll cover 6 of the most common grief myths.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How many are you falling for?

It's true that grief comes in waves. But it's also true that when you lose your person, THE person, those waves never really recede. For me, it's like white noise. As a person who is highly sensitive to auditory stimuli, white noise induces tension and anxiety for me, where most welcome it. For me, grief is a constant hum. Despite my keen sense of hearing, I often have to ask what someone just said. And it's not just because I'm distracted, although that's definitely a factor. It's also because of the humming pain that fills my mind 24/7. As the one-year mark draws closer, the hum gets louder and louder. A few times in the last few days I've actually caught myself looking for an appliance or device that's been left on. That's how tangible it is at this point. It never stops. There is never quiet. There is never peace. There are times when it fades into the background--when Jack laughs, when my students talk to me about their lives--but it's always there. Grief will make you feel like you're losing your mind (I mean, come on, I can HEAR my grief?!), and I guess really you are. You've lost yourself and the life you had. In a reality as unacceptable as the world without your one person, losing your mind makes more sense than anything else. No real point today, just needing to get the thoughts out in some form. And maybe, somewhere, someone else hears their grief too? #griefisweird #griefjourney #loss #lifeafterloss #widow #widowedandyoung #widowedmom

Too many of us are far too familiar with the struggle, but won't allow the strengthening to happen. We want it done for us or given to us simply because we are single moms, nah sis, you gotta get up and work for what you want. Stop settling for limits. Stop thinking so much and just go. GOD works it all out when he see's that you're ready for it. Get ready to move. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Took time out yesterday to write down my March goals. As much as I want yall to get what yall want there's still a lot I want too. . . . I remember thinking a few years back that there was no way in hell I was gonna be able accomplish the things I wanted. Like I wanted sh*t okay🤣, but the way my mindset was set up, I had some real self checking to do. It wasn't until I started taking my goals seriously when I noticed that they were making its way onto my done/ doing list. They were legit happening. . . . In 2018 we created the Goal Get Your Life Series. We have now updated it to include a 30 piece Planner Kit. I included my own personal strategy for being a single mom who got her life back on track after breakups, negative mindsets, a 460 credit score, no money in no bank, frustration and every other struggle that you can probably think of. I just started with one area of my life that I wanted to improve which for me was financial first and I charted down everything I did to get to a healthy financial lifestyle. I didnt even know I was creating something this dope🤣. I believe in writing it down, actionable steps and being consistent and now Im sharing it with yall.

My darling little girls. You bring me hope, happiness and so much love. From the moment I saw you on the ultrasound screen, to the moment I felt your first movement, to bringing you into this world, and watching you grow every single day. You’re so different from one another yet you are the best of friends. The emotion you’ve both shown in missing your sister this past week - is incredible. I never knew what it was like to have siblings, so in a way I get to experience this first hand with you. I am so proud to be your Mama. ♥️

Loss is an inevitable part of life. And grieving is a natural response to loss...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But despite the fact that we've all experienced loss at some point, there are still so many taboos about grief. About how to grieve properly. For how long. What it should look like. How you should feel.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So many of us beat ourselves up for grieving in a certain way. Or we don’t know what to say to a friend who’s mourning someone. We’d love a roadmap for grieving the "right" way, but there’s no such thing. Grieving is an incredibly individual process.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was my distinct honor to have a candid conversation on the subject of grief with The Life Coach School’s Brooke Castillo.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In this episode, we talk about how we’ve grieved loved ones in our lives and how the process is different in every experience. We talk about the influence of culture on how we grieve and why comparing our grief to others is such an unproductive practice.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Join me and Brooke as we discuss this difficult but incredibly important topic. ➡️http://qoo.ly/vf8z3
