Episode 16: When Grief Knocks You on Your Ass, Slow Down and Process it

In episode 016, “When Grief Knocks You on Your Ass, Slow Down and Process it”, I talk about what grief is and what grief feels like. Yes, I talk about feeling, a lot. Losing a loved one is universal. How we grieve our loved one is individual. As humans, we grieve when a loss occurs. At the same time, we tend to rush the process with avoidance and busyness. We might numb the process and pain with alcohol or other potentially unhealthy and possibly deadly habits. Our bodies, minds and souls are supposed to feel and feeling pain because of a loss, is normal. I will discuss how you can keep feeling your feelings as we shine a light on peace!

Losing a loved one is universal. How we grieve our loved one is individual.

My dear friend, Laura Lee Jones, took up boxing to process her grief, stating “I had a succession of things that were just super painful. I’m very disciplined, and I knew that I needed to channel that into something healthy. Boxing ended up being it.” You can find a video of Laura Lee’s debut (and one and only) boxing match in my resources, below.

Choosing a less physical avenue, I co-founded a business offering innovative heart-based solutions which assist an employer when an employee is grieving.

As humans, we grieve when a loss occurs. At the same time, we tend to rush the process with avoidance and busyness. We might numb the process and pain with alcohol or other potentially unhealthy and possibly deadly habits.  Our bodies, minds and souls are supposed to feel and feeling pain because of a loss, is normal.

Let me know how you have or continue to process your grief. Do you have a person in your life offering you the opportunity to slow down, long enough to feel? My person was my Granddaddy. He taught me the importance of slowing down, years before I needed to know why I even needed the lesson. I am sure glad I had his lesson.

Stay safe and keep feeling your feelings as we shine a light on peace!
