Suggestion #2 ~ Let it out. Let it out. Let it out.

#2 of my 10 suggestions. Based on my 20+ year journey. Given to you. As gift. Hoping to light your tunnel this new year.

A New Year.
A New Life. 
A New You.

2. Commit to active mourning. I define mourning as “going public” with your grief (the internal, automatic response to loss). Make the effort to find a life coach, a therapist, a support group, a “grief buddy.” Healing occurs when you find a safe place where you can excavate, explore and express your grief in the presence of others. Being stoic, pretending, repressing, rejecting, ignoring all that wells up inside of you is not a path to healing. Mourning, in the presence of others, is a path to healing. 

Let it out. Let it out. Let it out. 

Release all that weighs you down. Create a space for newness. 

Do you have a place where you can mourn safely?

If you’d like to explore this further, or any other facet of your grief journey, I work with people one-on-one.  If you’re in the Rockford, IL area, we can do that in person.  If you’re out of the local area, we can Skype or Facetime.  If you'd like to work with me, please email me at and we can schedule a session and discuss cost.

I also want to make sure you aware of my Video Program “Transforming the Way We Do Grief.”  The intention I set when I created this 3-part Video Program, is to help you heal ... to help make the unbearable, more bearable. Through this program, I share with you much of what I've learned about healing during my 20+ year journey with grief.  To learn more click:  "Transforming the Way We Do Grief.”

  • Thank you, Jim, for these inspirational monmtes. You have amazing gifts! Love the pix of you and GJP on FB! So glad to see the whole family this summer in Fort Worth. Probably the last time we’ll see them here, but we’ll just have to visit your part of the world!
