Grief escapes no one!

We are all familiar with grief. What we may not be familiar with are the stages of grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Sadness and Acceptance. Who grieves? Everyone at some point in their life experiences the stages of grief. Most commonly we experience grief when someone we love dies, or leaves us, or changes in ways we cannot quite define. We experience grief when life changes around us and we are not prepared. We experience grief even when we are prepared and excited about change in our lives.

Who experiences grief? All people experience grief: Adults, elderly, young people, children, infants, teens. Everyone experiences grief, as it is the universal human experience. People have called me when they suspected their animals were experiencing grief. When one dog had died and the surviving pet was now overwhelmed by sadness or the loss of a companion.


I recently gave a friend who is a grief counselor a copy of my latest published book. She is a grief counselor and she thumbed through it and said, "This would be perfect for people who are experiencing grief and bereavement!" She was delighted. Although I had published these journals to support people in recovery I had forgotten that yes, grief is a universal experience. People in recovery from any addiction are all suffering through grief.

This year, 2015, I will publish a series of books on Life Skills for Life Adjustments. They are already written. I have some last minute editing to do and then will announce the publication dates. I have also decided to provide on-line education classes in which people can attend via Skype in depth classes supporting the material in each of the books.

So please come back and look for the release dates and the updates to the on-line/distance learning classes coming soon. Really 2015 is going to be the best year yet!

Sincerely,

It's a New Year and an Opportunity for New Begginnings!

Today is the first day 2015. Make it an awesome year!

Most of us don't understand how we block ourselves from Happiness. We struggle and read and try and yet sometimes just feel like we come up short again and again. Anger, Fear and Resentment, the UN-Holy Trinity, in any relationship, including the one we have with our-self is the greatest stumbling block to resistance of Happiness. Won't your join me in this New Year and write your way to a New Life?

My latest publication was a work of LOVE! I felt so grateful for what I have learned and been blessed by in life that I wanted to give back. My price is set less than a $1 above the Amazon fee. Anger, Fear and Resentment are the stumbling block to a happy life. Writing in a daily journal has helped me focus back on my own self care. I have never made a mistake in any part of my life by taking care of myself first and others second. There is also a Kindle supplement. The journals are available in quarters or an annual edition!

Happy New Year!
May 2015 be the best ever!

They myth of the absent father!

Found this amazing article on dads. It is a must read!
"Let’s dispense once and for all with the myth of fathers being absent, absent-minded, or absolutely clueless when it comes to childbirth. Nothing rivals witnessing the birth of your child,and while experiencing a newborn’s entry into the world is naturally different for mothers and fathers,it is, from an emotional perspective, equally intense. The love, the wonder, the joy that these 9 dads felt on seeing their babies born is … well, why don’t we let them speak for themselves."
