Manage episode 221089715 series 1750448
Everyone has it--that special something that you feel so attached to, that you hold dear, that completes you. Be it your loved one, your job, or the organs in your body–if they vanished your life would turn upside down, and you’d feel entirely misplaced. Sarah Nannen, grief management specialist and life coach for widows, shares how in the midst of devastating grief there’s a chance to become even more whole than before--if only you seek the light amongst your deepest pain.
Through courageous conversations in Sarah’s coaching workbook and her upcoming podcast, she invites widows to honor their stories of what's been, while moving with clarity towards living the life of their new dreams. As the author of Grief Unveiled, Sarah’s dynamic background as a yogini, birth doula, naval veteran and mother allows her to integrate the deepest wisdom and thoughtful practices into a healing experience that's accessible as it is powerful and transformative.
Be bold enough to take a journey that’ll forever change your life!
The right now. You’re in this deep, rough patch and you’re on constant repeat that everything’s okay. In periods of grief you take big breaths, keep busy, and do everything you can to move on--it’s natural--but there’s another way. Start by asking yourself this ONE question . . . [7:21].
The purposeful intention. As a culture, we treat grief like it’s a thing that’s just happening to us. In the end, we’re left still broken, still left with things to say and feel, unaware of the realness that the moment offered. Here’s the kicker: there’s empowerment in grieving. The SECRET to finding it is . . . [11:16].
The messy days. Through transition, there’s a lot of ups and downs, good days and bad days. Sarah calls it, “this space in between no longer and not yet.” What does this phase look like and how do you get by? The BIG eye opener is this . . . [16:22].
The needed approval. On any given day you know what you want, what you need, and what you feel--so why do you insistently get in your own way? It’s not an easy answer but there are simple changes you can make so happiness--and healing--can find you. Look for this RED FLAG the next time self-judgment kicks in . . . [22:50].
Tune in and turn the volume up for a dose of inspiration and life lessons. You're never more than One Idea Away from a whole, new reality.
