    Looking For Permission as a Widow

    Looking For Permission as a Widow

    This week I had two excellent examples of the struggle we have at times as widows when we are making a decision or even wanting something more in our life, but feel a little guilty about that.  Have you ever thought about doing something or buying something and it felt a bit extravagant, so you shyed away from it?  Today I'm sharing a couple of stories that you just might identify with . . . . . . how it is when we are wanting permission.  Find me at https://joannthelifecoach.com  Email:  Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com

    Too Busy to Feel; But Then Not Busy Enough to Face it All

    Too Busy to Feel; But Then Not Busy Enough to Face it All

    This episode was inspired by a member in Widows Empowering Widows on Facebook who had both a wedding anniversary coming up, quickly followed by the first anniversary of her husband's death.  She had been keeping herself very busy since he passed.  But now feels like she cannot keep herself busy enough to distract herself from the pain of these upcoming dates.  What happens when busy works for a while, but then you can't be busy enough?  Email:  Joann@joannthelifecoach.com  Website:  https://joannthelifecoach.com

    Get on Your Death Bed

    Get on Your Death Bed

    Widows, don't run away!  "Get on your death bed" will make total sense if you join me in listening to this episode.  It is the practice that I think everyone should apply to constantly stay motivated in their life.  It is what some very very successful people practice to keep focused on what's important.  More about widow coaching:  https://joannthelifecoach.com   Subscription membership: https://widowcoachingcenter.com  Email me:  Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com

    Feeling Jealous of Other Widows

A wealth of information

I have been a widow for 9 years. I came across this podcast while searching for some help and guidance for a friend of mine who just recently became a widow under horrible circumstances. I believe I was lead to this podcast by a higher power as I have been feeling that I have a higher calling in life for a few years. Joann is very pleasant to listen to and I look forward to hearing more from her.

My new walking companion

Discovered Joann’s podcasts a few weeks ago and she now walks with me daily, encouraging me, supporting me, giving me new ideas of how to do this widow journey. I now actually look forward to my walk instead of forcing myself to go!
