“Grief is in two parts. The first is loss. The second is the remaking of life.” Anne Roiphe
We have all experienced grief at some point in our lives, whether it be the tragic loss of a loved one or a drastic change that would ultimately reshape one’s life.
Fortunately, grief does not have to cripple the spirit. With awareness, grief can be the guide that taps into your deepest emotions and leads to a path of healing.
I am pleased to announce that my story on grief has been featured in a brand new book by Tom Sweetman, “From Grief to Greatness: A Collection of True Stories and Lessons on Living Life after Loss.”
Following the passing of his mother in 2012 due to cancer, Tom realized that the average person is not prepared for the array of emotions that accompany loss, and he wrote his book as a way to help others struggling with similar situations.
Here is an excerpt from Tom’s book:
Between you and I my intention for this book is to assist you on your journey through grief and to show you a different way of seeing loss. Pain can be our biggest teacher and I will reveal to you how you can not only grow and learn from it but also use it to unlock a connection and purpose in life that you have inside waiting to serve the world.
