This week I had two excellent examples of the struggle we have at times as widows when we are making a decision or even wanting something more in our life, but feel a little guilty about that. Have you ever thought about doing something or buying something and it felt a bit extravagant, so you shyed away from it? Today I'm sharing a couple of stories that you just might identify with . . . . . . how it is when we are wanting permission.

This episode was inspired by a member in Widows Empowering Widows on Facebook who had both a wedding anniversary coming up, quickly followed by the first anniversary of her husband's death. She had been keeping herself very busy since he passed. But now feels like she cannot keep herself busy enough to distract herself from the pain of these upcoming dates. What happens when busy works for a while, but then you can't be busy enough? Email: Joann@joannthelifecoach.com Website: https://joannthelifecoach.com
Widows, don't run away! "Get on your death bed" will make total sense if you join me in listening to this episode. It is the practice that I think everyone should apply to constantly stay motivated in their life. It is what some very very successful people practice to keep focused on what's important.

Today's Widow Cast podcast was recorded live while broadcasting on video to my free Facebook group: Widows Empowering Widows. In our group, conversations had come up around the feeling that the relationship with their spouse who had passed on was gone and no more. On the contrary, relationships are all about how we think about the other person. Because those relationships are part of who we are, they can live on even as we move through the grief process. Find out how on today's episode. You can reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org Check out the subscription membership at https://widowcoachingcenter.com
What are you thinking as a widow? About you? About your loss? About your life? About your money? About all your external relationships? Our thoughts often are all over the place. Sometimes our brain is telling us thoughts that make us feel awful or fearful. I think many thoughts are "thought errors." You are not at the mercy of every thought your brain fires at you! Learn more in this podcast about what "thought errors" are how to deal with them. email: Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com Website: http://joannthelifecoach.com
Widows - Do you see too many social media posts that are like a kick in your soul? They are depressing - make your sadness heavier. It is one of the reasons I took on opening a Facebook Group page called Widows Empowering Widows - I wanted to share a message that was UPLIFTING. You CAN begin to turn that sadness into a life that brings you joy. I want to share with you quotes from the writings of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. email me at Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com Website: http://joannthelifecoach.com

When your spouse passed away, did you wonder, "How long will the money last until I run out?" Did you struggle with money issues even as you were consumed with grief? For most of us, we think we are going to become a bag lady. I speak very openly from a place of complete authenticity to share how I felt and the fact that you CAN be okay. There are ways you can build your own support. email: Joann@Joannthelifecoach.com Website: https://joannthelifecoach.com Widow Coaching Center: https://widowcoachingcenter.com

Have you ever read about "self-care" and think you need to scheduled the beauty spa? Or maybe it felt like you have to be completely selfish about your time - taking care of you at the expense of everyone else around you. A fellow professional life coach shared a post that beautifully defined what self-care means to her. It is with Corinne Crabtree's permission that I am sharing her post with you. You might be very surprised at what self-care can be. Email: Joann@joannthelifecoach.com Subscription membership: https://widowcoachingcenter.com
