Ep 44: Do Not Constantly Push Down the Pain

November 20, 2016

Are you ignoring the pain of loss, pushing it down, telling yourself “I’m okay, I got this?”  This is a definite trend in the sisterhood.  We think we can just tie on our red cape and push forward.  But all that bottled up emotional pain is going to push right back in ways you cannot even imagine.  Continuing on even in the best of circumstances is not necessarily the same as thriving on life. Start by learning the difference in how you look at what you are feeling.  Reach out in email to Joann@joannthelifecoach.com   Jump on a call with me:  http://talktojoann.com  Website:  http://joannthelifecoach.com

November 12, 2016

Join me as I break down this phenomenon.  Email feedback:  Joann@joannthelifecoach.com  Website: http://Joannthelifecoach.com  Jump on a call with me:  http://talktojoann.com

Ep 42: Don’t Miss Out on Life After Becoming Widowed

November 4, 2016

Don't miss out on life.  Why does one widow stay stuck for years and lose even a decade plus of living, and another widow uses the pain and fear to push forward?  One widow is not smarter, better, more emotionally stable than the other.  One widow does not have more supportive friends, more financial income, more social contacts than another.  Both widows are deep in grief.  So what happens? Where is the click?  Find out in this episode.  Reach out at http://talktojoann.com to jump on a call to find out about life coaching specifically for widows.  Email:  Joann@joannthelifecoach.com  Website:  http://joannthelifecoach.com

September 9, 2016

 A “widow moment” is when something small triggers an avalanche of emotion - like all that sadness has piled up while you were still in shock over the death of your spouse.  So as the fog and layers of protection your brain has provided you starts to ease off and let in a little more pain in each moment; you still have this huge stockpile of grief - just waiting.  Email:  Joann@joannthelifecoach.com   Schedule a free discovery call at: http://talktojoann.com  Website:  http://joannthelifecoach.com
