This week in the blog, we are discussing how we can become the best supporters possible for the people in our lives. You may ask, “Hannah, why did you use photos of your dog with this week’s blog?” Well, what better supporter is there than man’s best friend?! (Plus, he’s the most precious thing in the world, so why not?) Truly, we can all learn from each other when it comes to lifting one another out of dark places. I hope this week brings new knowledge to you and you are able to use it to be an even more beautiful light in the lives of others!
Well, sort of. I am a widow, but you might not be. It just so happens that it was my husband that died. For you, it could be a parent, a child, a sibling, a relative, or a close friend. No matter who you have lost in your lifetime, the information that I am about to share is definitely applicable to you. Maybe you have never lost anyone! That is awesome. I am so happy for you and so glad that you have not had to experience that part of grief – yet. Unfortunately, we live in a world where death is the reality and at some point, you will lose someone that you love and care for. I’m here to tell you that it is really going to suck, but you will be okay. In this week’s blog post, I am going to share with you how I learned to become a better widow and what you can do during your time of grieving to be the best version of yourself, for yourself.
Let’s be honest, there is not a good way to follow up last week’s post.
I know that last week got pretty heavy. If you haven’t read that post, click here to catch up! The response I received was overwhelming. There were many times that I cried just out of gratitude for the people reading and reaching out to me with heart felt comments. I received so many sweet words. So many of you expressed your love for me, love for Will, and lifted me up knowing that writing that part of my story wasn’t easy. I reread that blog post at least a dozen times. It still feels unreal that I was able to post it and share that with so many people.
