After my husband died in 2011, I found myself searching for a guide, a plan, or some sort of checklist that I could follow to help me navigate through my grief. I was disappointed to find that there is no roadmap to process the devastation of your partner’s death. In the early days, I felt so stuck in my pain that I couldn’t imagine ever feeling joy again. His death had stolen my life as I knew it. Thankfully, I not only found the strength to move forward, but I was also able to raise two boys to adulthood, find joy (and love) again, and I even wrote a book about my experience called “Filled with Gold”.
Now my life’s mission is to find new ways to support widows. One of these ways is this Self-Care Support Guide. It has the tools, playlists, books, resources, and journal prompts that helped me get through the toughest time in my life. I hope it can help you too.
