    How Do You Know When You Are Ready to Date Again After Loss?

    How do you know when you are ready to date again after loss? Since marrying my best friend back in November, there have been a lot of people who have asked me this question. Below are my answers. This advice also applies to anyone who have gone through a divorce as well. 1. I strongly suggest you hold off on dating until you clearly know who you are again. Whether you have been divorced or widowed, you are facing an identity crisis. Without rediscovering who you are after losing your old lifestyle, it will be very hard to know who will be a good fit for you in your new…

    Using Affirmations to Achieve Your Goals

    The one thing that is used a lot when coaching and training others is the power of affirmations. Affirmations are positive statements that can help you challenge and overcome your self-sabotaging behaviors and negative thoughts. When you repeat affirmations often and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes and remove limiting beliefs. Below are my affirmations from last year. Now when I look back, these affirmations have helped me reach the point I am at now which is that I truly believe I am loved by God, that I am good enough and worthy enough in God’s eyes. “I am so much more than my emotions, my…

    International Widow’s Day: What It Means To Be a Widow

    You may not know it but today is International Widow’s Day! I didn’t know about it until I became a widow myself three and a half years ago. There are many people who tell me that I don’t look like a widow because I am too happy, too powerful and too put together! So it got me thinking that it is time to redefine the term WIDOW. Or better yet, what should an awakened, empowered widow look like? A widow is a woman whose world was unwilling destroyed and shattered. Being sad, angry, confused and scared is normal for widows at the very beginning stages of grief. But at the…
