Ep 32: Widowhood - Challenge The Status Quo

August 19, 2016

Is widowhood pushing you to challenge the status quo of what a widow is supposed to be and what a widow is supposed to do?  I believe that the death so close to us is the most magnificent catalyst for personal growth.  “if you live each day as if it were your last, someday you will most certainly be right.”  Steve Jobs said every day of his adult life, he looked in the mirror every morning and asked himself if that day were going to be the last day of his life, would he want to do what he was about to do that day.  If the answer was no too many days in a row, he knew something had to change.  email: Joann@Joannthelifecoach.com  Website:  http://joannthelifecoach.com  Free minisession:  http://talktojoann.com

Ep 31: What Does Tony Robbins Have To Do With Your Widowed State of Mind?

August 12, 2016

When we are widowed, our mental state changes immediately - no big surprise there.  And as it should.  We’ve been gut punched - the rug pulled out from under us - in a state of shock and a deep state of grief.  All very understandable and OKAY.  However, if we remain stuck in that emotional state for weeks and months on end, it takes a toll on our life.  Find out what I learned from Tony Robbins about "State" and how to shift your emotional state.  Email Joann Filomena:  Joann@Joannthelifecoach.com  Website:  http://joannthelifecoach.com

Ep 29: How to Create Certainty in Widowhood

July 29, 2016

When your spouse passed away, did your life suddenly become filled with uncertainty?  We need a sense of certainty in our day and meaning in our life.   You do not want to be a "manager" of your life, trying to manage the uncertainty.  You want to be a creator in your life - and create a life with certainty.  Today I tell you about an experience that was able to shake my sense of certainty, showing me that I still have work to do on creating certainty for myself.  I share this with you and tell you how to get more certainty in your life.  I also did that last drawing for a $100 Amazon gift certificate and talk about a new online course I've developed.  You can still get a free mini session with me at http://talktojoann.com  Register for the new online course at http://joannfilomena.com   Email:  Joann@joannthlifecoach.com  Website:  http://joannthelifecoach.com

Ep 25: Newly Widowed

July 7, 2016

You are newly widowed. At first there is no time to think much past the next few days, even if you could through the fog of grief.  There is notifying others, arranging the funeral, maybe additional special services to be held.  Sympathy cards are flowing into your mailbox.  Others are right there for you.  But after a few weeks, it all starts to settle in.  The funeral and services are over.  The sympathy cards start to dwindle. You sit down in a chair and wonder, “what’s next - who am I now?”  Click HERE for a free session with Joann.  Email:  Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com  Website:  http://joannthelifecoach.com
