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.

    Finding the Good in Our Own Grief

    Finding the Good in Our Own Grief

    Happy S.H.I.T (So Happy It's Thursday) day my friends! Welcome to Episode 31 where we are going to tell you how we are going to be taking some of the advice we have been giving over the last 30 episodes so that we can find the good in our own grief this summer.
    With coming off of quarantine and the world slowly opening up, we both have extremely busy summers with family, travel plans, etc etc. and we don’t want to miss a thing. Because of our tremendous losses, we know how fleeting life is and we want to be 100% present for these upcoming plans. Soooo, we are going to be taking a few weeks off of recording but do not worry, we have big plans to come back with some great content to help take the information you have learned from these first 30 episodes and APPLY them to your everyday life.

    -How and why we are taking our own self-care advice and taking some time off from the podcast this summer
    -What our vision is for Season 2 
    -The reminder that while grief never goes away, we all have a choice to make and if we choose to find the good in it, it will make our lives so much better

    Letting Go of Who You Were to Find Out Who You Are with Daisy Eckman

    Today we are joined by Daisy Eckman who is going to share her story that is different from the guests that we have had in the past. Her story is not about losing an actual human being but of having to lose herself in order to move on after being violated in high school. She is now a rising sophomore in college and is wise beyond her years. Her courage and insightfulness is so inspiring. We are so appreciative to have her on the show to share her powerful, beautiful, and messy story with us. We can all learn something from this.
    This episode is a must listen if you have your own children or have any interaction with kids- especially middle and high schoolers. You may want to share this story with your daughters and sons so you can have conversations about respecting boundaries and the damaging effects of peer pressure.

    -How we learned of Daisy’s difficult story 
    -Her experience in a new high school, how she tried to fit in, and how she was sexually violated

    Finding Your Connection

    Finding Your Connection

    In today’s episode, we are talking all about finding connections in your life. When going through grief, it is so important that you find a connection with other people, with other grief warriors, and even with those that you have lost. This truly is pivotal to you being able to grow in your grief and get to a place where you can find your good, where you can find joy, where you can laugh about the good times and the special memories you have.
    And if you know someone who is grieving, you can help them just by reaching out and creating that connection. The purpose of this podcast is to help those who are grieving AND those who want to help those who are grieving. Creating a connection and being there is a wonderful way to help.
    Quote from this episode:
    “Death ends a life, not a relationship.”
    In this episode, you will hear:
    -How you can find your connections to who you have lost and to other people
    -The importance of finding these connections to help you heal and find your good in your grief
    -How connections provide a reason to live your fullest life, create memories, and leave your legacy
    Have you found connections to other grief warriors or to what you have lost? Are you looking for connections? Let us know on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/goodgriefpeople/ by commenting on this episode post or send us a DM.

    Crazy Things Grievers Do

    Crazy Things Grievers Do

    If you are a grief warrior, then you know you’ve done some crazy things! And in this episode we are talking all about some of the crazy things that we’ve done and we have heard others do as they deal with their grief. Do you stay under the covers for days when it is the anniversary of your loss? Have you kept things just the way they were and don’t want to change anything because that’s how it was before this traumatic loss occurred?
    Guess what, if that is what you need to do, we want you to keep doing your crazy! That might be just what you need to do to find your good in your grief- whether it is to keep your connection to what you have lost or to get your feelings out, you do what you need to do.
    We are kind of making light of the word “crazy” but it is basically like giving yourself that permission slip, that grace, to do what it is you need to do.
    Quote from this episode: 
    “Tough times never last but tough people do.”
    And you are a tough person! If you are listening to these episodes, you are tough because you are trying to find your good in your grief.
    In this episode, you will hear:
    What crazy can look like for grief warriors The importance of letting our crazy out Why you need to keep doing your crazy What kind of things do you do that some might think is crazy? Guess what? As fellow grief warriors, we don’t think it is. Let us know on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/goodgriefpeople/ by commenting on this episode post or send us a DM.

    Just Us

    Just Us

    Welcome to Episode 27! This episode is all about us- how we met (and were supposed to meet!), our incredible similarities, and how we help each other find the good in our grief. You will hear how we first connected over social media, how important it was for us to be open and vulnerable with one another, and how our friendship has blossomed over time. Distance can’t even keep us apart!
    We hope this episode shows you how you can meet “your person” anywhere. Be open to it! It is really important that you be willing to share parts of your life with someone you trust. And even if you don’t know if you can trust that person yet- be open to the fact that sharing could deepen your relationship. As human beings, we were made for connection and it really makes life better!

    “Find your person.”
