Grief Is Learning to Integrate Loss Into Life

Grief is the process of integrating the very personal and devastating loss of your spouse or significant other into your new, unprecedented life. It’s a journey that you do not want to take, it forces you to a place you never wanted to be, and into a process that you don’t understand. There’s a lot of confusion and it leaves you feeling alone and isolated. 

I know because I’ve been there. I’m a widow too.

I am a woman who has started over many times.  The death of my spouse was by far the most difficult and traumatic reset. I was stuck in the past, barely surviving the present, and thoughts of the future left me paralyzed.

Are you there?

During this phase of grief, your biggest questions may be:

  • How can you honor the life you had with your loved one and still rejoin the living in a meaningful and fulfilling way? 
  • How can you integrate the different pieces your life?

The secret is to become a bridge.

All bridges serve a noble purpose. They connect and transition us from one point to another.  They unite us. Bridges allow us to do impossible things; to overcome or surmount physical or emotional obstacles. They provide us with a new route that would otherwise be extremely difficult or impossible.  

Think of your loved one. Their death served as a giant chasm in your life, ripping your future away from you; leaving you stranded in what feels like a tsunami of grief. You are so involved with surviving that grief that you cannot see the bigger picture nor your future on the other side. You need a way out!

I want to teach you HOW to build a bridge, to BE the bridge that takes you from your place of grief and loss over to the promise of a fulfilling and meaningful future. How do I do that? I use my tools of organizing, productivity, teaching, coaching and mentoring.

My mission is to teach everyone who has lost a loved one how to integrate widowhood into the grand narrative by honoring the past, acknowledging the present circumstances, and building a bridge to a fulfilling and meaningful future.

I can help you integrate the pieces of your life and move forward in a healthy way.  It’s called coaching. I’ve taken all of the tools I learned along the way and wished I had known when I was going through the process and created a program called Navigating Widowhood. If you’re ready to try something different, reach out and connect and we’ll see if my program is a good fit for you.

Blessings Friends,

Julie Margaret
