My journey through the grief process was not a lot of fun but it allowed me to move toward a new beginning. If this major loss did not occur I would probably have not chosen my new career path. As it is said, “If God did not believe I could handle this, he maybe would not have allowed this to happen to me.” He only gives you challenges that you have the ability to overcome.
This has allowed me to apply my most treasured skills that were part of my prior career to my new career path. What has mattered most in my business and personal life is to apply my interpersonal and relationship talents toward helping others through their personal times of crisis. This is what I treasure most in life…….helping others.
During my personal grief process it was revealed to me that a career that I had never considered before was something that was made for me…….to become a professional grief coach so I could help others work through the major loss that happened to them because of the loss of a loved one to breast cancer. My personal experience with this type of loss can be directly applied to the situations I am involved with others facing a similar challenge.
In addition, I was introduced to Aurora Winter and herGrief CoachAcademyso I would be provided with the tools needed to deal with my clients who are facing a similar loss. As it is said, “Everything happens for a reason.” And I believe this directly applies to the changes that have occurred in my life.
“Success has nothing to do with
what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself.
It’s what you do for others.”
~ Danny Thomas
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.”
