What Exactly Is Wholehearted Living After Loss?

Shelly Immel of The Big Life Project interviewed me a few weeks ago about wholehearted living after loss. I use that phrase a lot around here, but after this interview I realized that I’ve shared about it in bits and pieces throughout all my articles and there isn’t really a short summary about wholehearted living after loss on my site. This interview is a great summary of what wholehearted living after loss is all about and how to create a wholehearted life after loss. It includes a creative exercise you can do yourself, and I also shared about many of the values and beliefs that underpin both my personal journey and my work here at Remembering For Good and with Kara at The Creative Grief Coaching Studio.

In the interview, I shared:

  • Brene Brown’s concept of “Whole-Hearted Living” and how it applies to “wholehearted living after loss.”
  • The creative power of “AND” thinking (rather than “Either/Or” thinking)
  • A creative exercise you can use to invite other experiences and feelings you want (peace, meaning, joy) into your life after loss – even if you feel like your grief is overwhelming.
  • The best protection against a broken heart. (Hint: It’s NOT holding back your love.)
  • How and why connection is integral to wholehearted living after loss.

Remember With Us: Remembering For Good on Pinterest

We naturally remember our loved ones after they die and they continue to impact our lives. I’ve created a collaborative Pinterest board where you can add photos and stories about the people you’re remembering, so that we can remember together, share stories and celebrate the significance of these people’s lives, even after their death.

Pinterest is a free social network. In order to be able to pin on the Remembering For Good board, you need to have a Pinterest account, and then drop me a message (send me a tweet at @cathduncan or email me at cath at rememberingforgood dot com.) with the link for your Pinterest account so that I can follow you on Pinterest and add you as a collaborator on this board. After that you’ll be able to join us and pin images and articles to the Remembering For Good Pinterest board.

Would you like guidance to explore and heal your grief?

I’ve put together a 35-page grief “workbook” for you; an introduction to Remembering For Good and living wholeheartedly after loss. Learn more about the Remembering For Good grief workbook.

The first book in the QUESTIONS + ART AFTER LOSS series, Untangle Your Grief is a beautiful 65-page book of artful questions and creativity-sparking art prompts to help you to create meaning, belonging, and hope after loss.
