Suggestion #6 ~ Quiet Time


and only you
will determine whether or not you will heal.

And you will determine the speed at which you heal.

Is it easy?
Is it possible?

And you must take the first step.
You must lean in.

Begin today.

This is a tough one.
It scares many people.

6. Commit to spending quiet time with yourself every day – to simply BE with yourself and your new life. Again, even if you have to force yourself to be quiet and alone for five minutes – do it. 

“The Universe will back you up...” 

And, over time,
five minutes becomes 10, 
becomes 15, 
becomes 20. 

If you keep running from yourself and your new life, 
how can you live it? 
How can you consciously participate in it? 
Your own life. 
You can learn to fly.
Again, or for the first time.

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.”

  • This is very hard to do when you are living with your 88 year old mother who when you are behind a closed door, wants to know what you are doing. This happens even if i ask her not to do this.
    What can i do?
