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.

WIDOWS AND MONEY DRAMA. Many widows are suffering from the beliefs we were raised with about money; but they don't even feel like beliefs - it just feels like "not enough."

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.

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.

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 .

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!

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
