Grief is hard enough but add guilt – you know all the what if’s, the shoulda, coulda, woulda’s - to the list and it’s too much!

This is something that you have to want …

So, how many people have asked, “Are you ready for Christmas?” Lawd, I hated that question especially my first Christmas in grief. In my head, I was sharing every detail of how my life had 'flipped' 3 months earlier and why I was in no way “ready” to participate in this holiday season. But, out of my mouth came, “I guess” so I could keep it moving …
 
In life before grief, you probably dealt with self-limiting thoughts that kept you ‘in your head’ and overthinking things.

The holidays are a real grief milestone – much like your loved one’s birthday, day of death and anniversaries.
