Welcome to the GOOD GRIEF, PEOPLE! Podcast hosted by Missy Gaspard and Lori Miggins…two women who met accidentally on purpose. They were originally brought together by a shared desire of health but quickly realized their connection was one of something much bigger, it was about grief - one as a child who lost her mother and father, and one as a mother who lost a child.

Through their shared experience with death, they developed an unbreakable bond built on truly living - with pure joy, unwavering dedication to healthy eating and functional fitness, and a commitment to faithfully showing up every day for themselves and those they love and coach.

This weekly podcast will explore the beauty of life well-lived while grieving losses, with tears of laughter and pain, inspiration and education, and a true sense of community.

Whether you join us while on your favorite walk, during your daily commute, or at home in your favorite cozy corner - our biggest wish is that you are reminded that life is precious and fleeting, that you are strong enough to face anything that comes your way, and that finding real friends to hold your hand and heart through the toughest days is truly the good in life. You will have a front-row seat to the realities of Missy and Lori making Lululemons with the lemons life serves them on a daily basis. We realize that beyond cards and casseroles grief can be a struggle for those on the outside. Our hope is that the GOOD GRIEF, PEOPLE! Podcast may give others exactly what they need to hear while grieving their loss. Tune in weekly to get your dose of necessary release mixed with the right balance of tears, laughter, and hope.

    It's Okay to Feel Jealousy

    It's Okay to Feel Jealousy

    Welcome to Episode 7! This is the first episode that we are recording since our podcast launched and WOW! We just have to say THANK YOU! Thank you for the amazing feedback and support you have given us and this podcast. Based on such positive feedback and the download numbers that have been out of this world, it truly solidifies our decision to start this podcast and it is a testament to how many people need to hear and start to normalize the word grief.
    In today’s episode, we are talking about the jealousy that you will feel after a loss. When you lose something, whether it is a relationship, a pet, or a person, whatever it is, when you see someone else that has it, you may feel jealous or angry. We want you to know that that is totally normal and okay. What is not okay, is to stay there. We are talking today about the best way to get through these very normal feelings so you can get to the other side. As Lori says, “You’ve got to flip the switch!”
    In this episode, you will hear:
    -Why jealousy and anger can creep in after a loss
    -Why it is absolutely okay and normal to feel this way but not okay to stay there
    -How you can deal with these feelings and get to the other side
    Have you experienced jealousy and anger after a loss or major life change? Come share with us over on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/goodgriefpeople/. We would love to connect with you!

    Less Tolerance for BS

    Less Tolerance for BS

    We cannot believe we are on Episode 6 of this podcast! We are so grateful that you are tuning in and listening! It truly is an honor to share with you all the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of grief.
    Today’s episode is all about how, when you go through a loss, you have less capacity to put up with BS, especially in the very beginning. It’s like if someone is complaining about something that you feel like is not a big deal, because let’s face it, it probably isn’t compared to what you are going through, you may not have the capacity to listen and tolerate it. The best thing to do in this situation is get out of it. Since your tolerance level will change depending on how you are feeling, you need to figure out how you’re feeling and be ready to pivot to get out of situations that you don’t have the tolerance to deal with. It’s totally normal and okay to feel this way but you have to realize that it’s on you, it’s not on them. It is not their fault, it is not their grief.
    We have definitely gotten to a place where we are less tolerant of the little things because life is too short. And we know this because we have lived it- we know we are not guaranteed tomorrow because our tomorrow was taken from us. But not everyone knows this and we can’t expect them to. We hope this episode gives you permission to catch your breath because so many things with grief can take your breath away.
    In this episode, you will hear:
    -Why we can become less tolerant for BS when it comes to grief
    -Why it is absolutely okay and normal to feel this way
    -How you can deal with these feelings and allow yourself to pivot and breathe
    How are you tolerating BS? Come share with us over on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/goodgriefpeople/. We would love to connect with you!

    Signs

    Signs

    Do you believe in signs from above? Have you ever experienced a sign from a loss that let you know everything is going to be okay?
    We think signs are a very important aspect of your grief journey but you have to be in a good place with your grief, so that you are open and willing to see signs. In today’s episode, we are exploring signs and what they can mean for your grief. We are sharing the signs we have personally experienced and how they have helped us as we grieve the loss of our loved ones.
    When you get to a place where you are ready to see these signs, it truly is pure magic. It’s not scary or sad, but it actually feels like a hug and a sign from above that they are still here and that we will see them again. Some may think signs are crazy or just a coincidence but if it makes us feel better and if it makes you feel better, then we say, go with it! We hope this episode allows you and gives you permission to be open to seeing signs if and when you are ready.
    In this episode, you will hear:
    -Why signs can be magical, comforting, and helpful when you are grieving
    -Some of the signs that we have experienced
    -How it can take time to be ready to see signs but it will come if you are open to it
    Have you experienced signs from your loss? If so, share them with us over on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/goodgriefpeople/. We would love to connect with you!

    Tools in Your Toolbox Part 1

    Tools in Your Toolbox Part 1

    When you suffer a loss, you are basically handed an empty toolbox of how to deal with grief. In this episode, we are giving you permission to start putting your own tools in your toolbox. We discuss just a few of the tools that have helped us (and some that didn’t) BUT here’s a disclaimer- not every tool is going to work for every person. For instance, a tool that works for Lori may not work for Missy and vice versa. We want you to find what works best for you so that they can help you when you have those hard days.
    Wherever you are in your grief journey, if you have been grappling with it for years or if this is something more recent, and your toolbox is empty, that’s okay. It can take awhile to fill it up but know that there are things you can do to help you get through the difficult times associated with grief.
    In this episode, you will hear:
    -Why having tools in your toolbox will help you in your grief journey
    -Some tools that have helped Lori and Missy (and some that haven’t)
    -Why it can take some time to start finding tools that can help

Wow. I love my signs. This was just what I needed today. To confirm that I am not alone. I see signs from my mom, dad, sister n my dear friend all the time. I relax n take a moment every time they come to me. Thank you very much for saying it out loud, it’s ok to embrace them. Can’t wait to hear more.

Solitaire Gal ,

Perfectly done!

Thank you Missy and Lori for creating a platform for grief, grieving and moving forward! So proud of you for your bravery in sharing your stories! I love how you say there’s no timeline for grief other than one’s own! Thanks for the wisdom and tools you share, the validation that the journey will vary from day to day and the confirmation that the journey is to grieve in one’s own unique way!

momofitness ,

Thank you for sharing your stories!

I lost my baby boy to stillbirth 18 years ago. I know the connections I made after that tragedy were some of the most important people that I met in my life. There is always a way to find good in your grief.
