I really appreciate your article. It is so well defined as to the steps that truly make a difference in whether you just survive, or you thrive. Having lost a child and a husband, I discovered there was life waiting for me after loss… and a pretty great one at that. I will never heal the hole in my heart, I’ve just learned to let it rest there and fill it with love for my husband and my child. Your Number 6 is the most important step of all. It defines who you will be in the next part of life. Wow… did you ever nail it. Thank you.
