Living Intentionally After Loss

How has your life changed since your loss?  In what ways are you the same or different?  Today’s post is one sparked by recent conversations with a friend. Losing a loved one can cause us to lose ourselves and morph into completely different people, both good and bad.  When Lydia was alive, I really had no concept of life and death. I mean, I did but it wasn’t a deep understanding or awareness of the spiritual meaning of life.  We had the perfect family, careers, went to church, and went through the routine so to speak, but in hindsight, I was missing out on a much more gratifying way of life.

One lesson learned….

 

I am so grateful for having the opportunity to be interviewed by my friend Alysha over at An Intentional Future -Living Beyond Loss.   Talking with her made me realize just how drastic my life has changed since Lydia passed away and what a difference time has made.  Below is the video and although my little critters posed a bit of a distraction, we still got the job done.  Here, I share pieces of my journey and tidbits of what has helped me through this devastating and life changing loss.   I hope this is helpful to many of you also.

You can see her blog post and more information about the interview here.   I encourage you to share with others and share your stories as well.  I would love to connect with you and hear yours.

 

Thank you Alysha for all you do. Alysha is a fellow blogger and loss survivor who is paving the way to show the world ways to live intentionally beyond loss, something we all can benefit from. Please pay her blog a visit here for insightful information and stories of love, loss, faith, and living intentionally. (Not to mention, she has fun prizes up for grabs!)

    After watching this interview last night, I thought it would be a good time to share it again. It was my first interview, sharing with others my journey. Although it was not easy, it was such a valuable and insightful experience for myself. There is so much power in sharing your story.
