It’s the holidays and when we have lost loved ones, we feel some kind of way in spending times doing the same things, because there is a void in our lives. This was my 2nd July 4th holiday without my hubby. I wanted to spend this time encouraging others that may be on the grief journey, to spend the day in a way that works for them. I was honored the be the co-host on WVON 1690AM radio station with the amazing Art “Chat Daddy” Sims. He is such and beautiful and hilarious soul that helped to make the show a success. I provided tips for individuals on coping with their grief, and on how those who know someone going through grief, can help them cope. I think the key take away from the segment was this, “Everyone will have their own timing in how they cope and adjust to dealing with the loss of a loved one, or something that was a significant part of their lives. Grief doesn’t have a date to come to an end and it isn’t just about death of a person, it can include the loss of a job, relationship, close friend, etc. Either way, we must do what is best for us as the situation plays itself out”.
