Ep 113 Lists You Want to Make

March 14, 2019

As a widow, we are confronted with mind-boggling lists about what to do, what not to do, and what we need.  Death certificates, bank accounts, bills, insurance papers.  You are in shock, you are in a fog, or even if it has been years, these lists just make your stomach sick or makes you want to hide under covers.  But what about the lists that will really help you get through the fog.  The lists that can help you begin to rebuild the pieces of your life.  That's what I want to talk about today.  Reach out to me at Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com   Check out https://widowcoachingcenter.com

Ep 111 What Makes You Angry as a Widow?

February 24, 2019

Widows, when people ask, "How are you?" do you tighten up?  How about when another widow posts, "Welcome to the club no one wants to belong to" or that "no one chooses?"  We all have triggers.  Our grief as a widow is going to take us there. I totally get it because I get triggered too.  Let's take a closer look at what is going on within us and how we can identify what makes us feel like that.  Would you like to know how to absolutely feel better about it without choking the next person who says it?  Join me as I explain how we can choose how we want to feel.  It can be life changing, grief changing, even leading you to your best life.  Check out https://widowcoachingcenter.com  You can email me at Joann@joannthelifecoach.com  Find me on Facebook in our group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/WIDOWEDbookclub/   

Ep 110 Widows Facing Fear

February 15, 2019

As widows, we all experience different levels of fear.  Fear of being alone, fear of doing things on our own, fear of having enough, fear of not being "okay."  When do you feel fearful?  Have there been things you might like to do, but the fear keeps you inside a bubble of comfort?  Today, I want to talk to you about how you can feel fear - even SHOULD feel fear; and still go after the life you want to create.  Check out the new membership at https://widowcoachingcenter.com   email:  Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com .

Ep 108 Ten Reasons Why You Should Hire a Life Coach

January 4, 2019

Life coaching is such a new industry, but I think it is one of the most critically important new industries to arise in our culture.  Because it is still a new industry, there are many questions around it.  I looked it up in general - why should someone work with a coach (I know why I think so, but I wanted to see what is the word on the street).  There was an excellent article listing ten reasons to work with a life coach.  This article was not directed specifically to widows, but astonishingly every single one of the ten points listed apply to widows.  Not one of the reasons you should hire a life coach.  Not a couple of the reasons.  ALL the reasons.  Listen in and see if you agree.  I feel working with a life coach for a new perspective on your life is critical for everyone in our world.  email:  Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com  Website:  https://joannthelifecoach.com  Membership site:  https://widowcoachingcenter.com .

Ep 104 Widows Judging and Being Judged

November 23, 2018

Widows are judged by society, judged by family, judged by friends, judged by themselves, and even judged by other widows.  Sometimes it seems a competition among widows for who is the saddest or who has the most heart-breaking story to tell.  Let's raise each other up!  Time to change the discourse!  You can reach me at Joann@joannthelifecoach.com  or  https://Joannthelifecoach.com  

Ep 103 Widowed Holidays

November 16, 2018

Are you dreading the holidays without your spouse?  As widows, the holidays can be a very difficult and depressing time of year.  Do you wonder how you will get through the holidays with this sadness?  Remember that Thanksgiving is a day. Christmas is a day. Hanukkah extends for 8 days, but for most it is most celebrated on the first day.  We tend to experience the most dread and sadness in anticipation of what those days are going to be like, rather than the actual day.  In this episode, let's explore what really works to handle the holiday period better.  website:  https://Joannthelifecoach.com  email:  Joann@Joannthelifecoach.com
