Grief Is A Road Not Clearly Defined

The Grief Toolbox offers tools for finding hope along this journey. Tools are what we all need as we navigate the road on our Journey Through Grief. When grief is in your face it can take you completely by surprise and take you on the wildest ride of your life.

It can be scary and frightening as your feelings can completely take over or you can sit in a state of disbelief and numbness.

This road is not clearly defined and there will be potholes in the most unexpected places.

On my own journey I found allowing myself to feel my feelings without judgement and expressing my feelings by writing a journal helped me grieve and find a new way to connect with my mum after her sudden death.

I share my journal in my book Mum Moments - Journey through Grief to give you " permission to feel" as I believe allowing yourself to feel without judgement is a powerful healing tool.

About the Author
I am a mother, sister, daughter, facilitator, speaker, author and an advocate for self-expression. Over many years I have embraced a holistic approach to life for myself and my clients. I have helped and supported others to embrace their feelings, get to know themselves and make choices that produce positive outcomes in their lives. Everything I had learned and practiced was in my face as I experienced the roller coaster ride of raw grief following my mother’s sudden death. I found writing my thoughts and feelings in my Mum Moments journal helped me deal with the reality and emotions of death which at times overwhelmed me. As I shared my journal with friends and colleagues I was touched that my words had a profound effect on others dealing with the death of a loved one. In one powerful instance my words motivated a friend to reunite with her estranged mother. To observe someone reconnecting with a living relative touched my heart. I felt it important to share my healing experience in order to help others and decided to publish my journal. I hope it will help those finding their way through a difficult time.

My journal “Mum Moments – Journey Through Grief” and ‘HEARTSPACE – Letters To My Mother’ – Both available from The Grief Toolbox
