Posts Tagged ‘grief journey’

I used to think people only grieved when a love one died. After my first husband died, I  learned more about grief. I realized people go through grief over many reasons. Perhaps if we know we’re going through grief, such as stages of depression or anger, we’ll realize there’s logic to why we feel the way we do. This short clip may bring more understanding to grief experiences from losses we may never have thought about…..

stock-photo-46786344-woman-at-cemetery[1]Top 10 Rights for anyone grieving:

  1. You have the right to experience your own unique grief.
  2. You have the right to talk about your grief.
  3. You have the right to feel a multitude of emotions.

See more…..

For anyone who is going through grief, it’s an individual experience. Each person, who is grieving, has a set of rights. If others can understand this, and allow the griever these rights, they can move along in their grief healthier and possibly sooner than if they are prevented from experiencing these rights.

Check out the “Mourner’s Bill of Rights” from grief expert, Dr. Alan Wolfelt. This was posted from a blogger friend who has a fantastic website Heartache To Healing, from JoAnne Funch. JoAnne’s website  offers, “Compassionate Grief Support to Heal Your Heart and Soul”. She has many guest bloggers who offer HOPE and INSPIRATION

People who are grieving need to know that they’re not going crazy but have their own “rights” to allow them the freedom to grieve however they need to!

1420215826zh4ns[1]Becoming a widow eventually begs the question…”Now what do I do?”

An article I published this year, on an online website, Open To Hope, reaches out to let widows know that they are not alone. This happens to the best of us!

Grief is a major part of a widow/widower’s life. Although everyone works through grief in their own way, there are still some similarities. I’d guess the majority of widow/widowers go through various stages of shock, denial, guilt, anger, depression, and hopefully acceptance. But every journey will also be unique.

Read the article, When Grief Subsides…What’s Beyond?

In my book, A WIDOW”S PURSUIT: Finding Out There’s More to Life Than Grief, I wrote about my challenges that I went through in grief and beyond.

What about you….is it time to…

CONQUER CHALLENGES & MAKE NEW GOALS?

stock-photo-transform-your-thinking-on-blackboard-background-238546603[1]What does it take to transform a widow’s grief into a renewed life?

My friend, Ferree Hardy, has compiled 5 Turning Points in scripture to be aware of to help in a Widow’s Transformation. As Ferree writes on her blog, Widow’s Christian Place, she states that grief is not our destination but part of a journey of love. “We grieve because we’ve loved.”

Ferree suggests how we can watch for turning points in a widow’s grief with Wisdom, Knowing God Better, Contentment, Gratitude and Purpose.

Follow Ferree’s link to her website and see how she uses scripture references to help in 5 Turning Points That Help Transform Grief for Widows.
