Who is this for?

I know nobody can understand or know what you are going through.  There are no words or real roadmap that can ever do justice when the unthinkable has taken place. When my husband died, I truly believed that a part of me had gone insane.

Who is this for?

I know nobody can understand or know what you are going through. There are no words or real roadmap that can ever do justice when the unthinkable has taken place.

How do you even come back after something so devastating?

When my husband died, I truly believed that a part of me had gone insane. To be honest with you, a part of me really did. This is how I know that a part of you feels like everything is upside down right now.

You might even be in The Waiting Room of life, the place in between the life you left behind and the life you have yet to live. You want to go back to the life you left behind but that is no longer an option.

I bet nobody said anything to you about the duality of loss. You are no longer you but everything is as you left it.

You want to love again, live again, dream again but you are not sure that it is going to be possible for you. I get it.

But here is what I want to share with you today. There is a part of you that’s been with you all along, a very wise part. This is the part that I want to help bring back. So we can slowly re-enter back to life.

It was my own devastating loss of my 35 year old husband that sent me on this journey almost 10 years ago. You see, I spent four of those in The Waiting Room as I didn’t have the right resources. I did have a Masters in Counseling and had specialized in grief prior to my loss taking place. These qualifications were nowhere near enough to help me rebuild my life.

Somehow out of soul-wrenching loss, a small quiet movement was birthed. Bringing together others who have shared many kind of tragic losses. I have had the honor to work with thousands, write a bestselling book called Second Firsts and build a community around the work that I have called Life Reentry.

Together we exit the waiting room.

If you feel stuck in a place between the life you left behind and the life you so wish you can have then I hope you will join me and hundreds of others in our next class.
