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.
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.
