All day I’ve been feeling like I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to share with you today. I kept thinking, what does “she” (you) need to hear from me today.

Then I sat down at my computer, and I got the email…I knew what I was going to share with you.

I hope my SACRED S.O.L. STORY of grief…Good Grief…makes a difference in your experience of it. Now or in the future.

There are 2 Major Lessons I’ve learned about grief from the loss of both my parents.

1. Grief is good. Feel it, but don’t feed it. If you do, it’ll stick around like the stray cats do on the farm.

Let it come like a wave in the ocean. It comes and goes. No matter what happens, the tide recedes.

Allow it to pass over you or through you.

In your feeling, you’ll find healing.

Feel it. Heal it. Don’t feed it.

2. Love isn’t the most important thing. It’s the only thing that really matters.

Love yourself. Love those in your life. Love your life. Love your life’s work.

With all your heart and soul.

Don’t wait.

Feel it. Heal it.

Love it. Live it.



Tell someone you love how much you love, and appreciate him or her today.

Love them.

Stand in front of the mirror and give yourself a big hug. Let yourself know how grateful you are the you’re the carrier of your soul. That you have a body that carries a soul. One that has a purpose, and a heart…that’s full of love, and has a life’s work to do.

Then get going. Do it. Get ‘er done, my dear!
