24.0 What Do I Do Now After the Loss of a Loved One? Your Grief Survival Roadmap. Part 1.


The beginning of grief – aka when the world flips on you.  You’ve had to see your loved one’s name in the obituary and probably were the one who wrote it.  That’s surreal.  You’ve dreaded the funeral not knowing how you would make it through. You’ve smiled kindly (and authentically) at all the people who wanted to show their love and support as they walked through the line.  All of that is hard to bear.  And, if all this occurred during the most restrictive times of Covid, there is the loss of all those things that making it worse.  In either case, life has just flipped!


After the funeral and the busy month of support after, people have to return to their lives.  I resented it but knew it was a fact of life.  So, now what??  Everything is overwhelming, you can hardly breathe and are expected to go on with life as before.  But where do you start?


In today’s episode, I share the 4 Actions to Take Now in the beginning of your grief.  These four things are the most helpful and healing of all things so put your time and energy into these and let the rest fall away!
