The holiday season can be quite the emotional roller coaster.
Never mind, if there has been a really big life change that has brought feelings of grief.
Grief doesn't just mean a loss of life. Grief is the loss of something once loved. This quote said it all for me.
Whether you are dealing with the loss of a job, a home, a relationship, or a pet, all of your emotions are valid and you may have a lot of emotional waves to ride to reach any bit of stable ground. I give you permission to ride that wave anyway you'd like especially during the holiday season.
Grief, I've learned is really just love. It's all the love you want to give, but cannot. All of that unspent love gathers in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in the hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go. --Jamie Anderson
In this Dealing with Grief over the Holidays workshop, I discuss the different types of loss in your life or a family member's life.
There may be symptoms that display as depression and anxiety. I want you to know that these are very normal and that it may take quite some time for you to process through it all. There is nothing wrong with you for feeling out of sorts and wanting to do things differently than you would have in the past.
I also get into what can you do to provide emotional support for yourself and others if there are feelings of grief that are arising.
The holiday season is meant to bring light to the darkest days of the year. I hope the Free Joyful Holidays checklist supports you in finding your inner Om as a family. Grab one here.
I know that it can be challenging to keep the magic alive for your kiddos and yourself.
That's why I've teamed up with some of my favorite mom coaches to bring you some extra TLC for the holidays.
We hope these workshops bring more peace and joy to your family during the holiday season.
When you follow your unique family values and interests, that's where the magic happens!!
