The coronavirus pandemic has impacted our lives personally, financially, and socially to an extent we couldn’t have imagined. We are more isolated, more afraid, and more stressed.
During this time period in our lives, self-care becomes more difficult because when you’re bored or stressed out, it’s easy to fall into unhealthy habits and negative patterns. However, it is because of this that self-care becomes more important, and practicing it will make you physically, mentally, and emotionally healthier.
Join me and other women as we share our stories of grief and hope.
The holidays are approaching. This can be a time when grief can re-emerge and take us by surprise and with COVID this year, holidays are going to look and feel very different. Let’s get ahead of it and even plan for it.
I’m sharing my personal story of my journey through grief during the Motherless Moms Thriving Virtual Retreat. This retreat is about taking time to reflect, connect, be inspired, and feel hope from sharing our stories.
With summer winding down and a new school year on the horizon, it’s an exciting time of year for you and your family – unless, of course, it isn’t. So far, 2020 hasn’t been what anyone expected – and it doesn’t look like school this fall will be, either.
How do you and your family cope with back-to-school when kids aren’t actually going back to school? Or if your child’s state and district is headed back, how do you deal with altered schedules, social distancing precautions, sweeping uncertainty and the risk of getting sick?
If the thought of starting an academic year under this “new normal” feels daunting, take heart. The 2020-2021 school year doesn’t have to be a wash. In fact, finding simple, healthy ways to adapt to and cope with the current situation can help you and your family thrive – whatever this year of school looks like.

Each of us has attached ourselves to something or somebody, and when you lose that special thing or person, you grieve. Always. You can try to run from it all you want, but it will always find you and tackle you when you’re not looking. My blogs, along with my books, will give you the tools to help you learn to live with your new self as you journey through your grief.
