Goodbye 2018

Thank You 2018

Tags : 

I can’t lie, 2018 was one tough year. Now that 2019 is just peaking over the horizon, I felt it was important to remind myself that despite the difficulties, it was also a year of so many blessings. Here are some of them.

FRIENDSHIPS

This was the year of new “friends in grief” I met through social media: Linda and Lori (from The Death Deck), Maryanne (widow extraordinaire), Lisa (missing her Dad too), Rachelle and Sharon (two grief recovery gurus), John (the better not bitter widower), Cass (the pompous_btch), Leslie (the amazing sketch artist), Debbie (the crisis maven), Elizabeth (opening the door to conversations about death), Olivia (who taught me to be a death midwife), Ophelia (the kind and gentle soul from Canada), Robin (the tango dancer), Shelby (who is wise beyond her years), Melody (the composer and musician) and all the wonderful experts I have met through the 2019 Bereavement Cruise.

Then there were those so dear to my heart, Henri (the dowsing queen), Sandy (one of the kindest people I have ever met), Annah (my sounding board), Ginny (the Earth Angel), Lindsay (the fighter), Cathy (the grief coach), Sandy (who makes amazing jewelry all while being a newly single Mom), Nathalie (who helps grieving parents around the world), Andrew (who picks the most amazing music to grieve to and helped me to get to of my comfort zone), Rachel (one of the most eloquent widows around and my walking buddy), Melo (the be-who-you-are advocate for so many who are grieving) and Connie (for always being so kind to share my posts). I don’t know how I would have made it without all of you this year!

Finally there are the Grief Reiki® clients and followers who have bravely shared their grief journeys and emotions both in person by attending workshops, free events and support groups; and virtually by providing heartfelt comments and giving us a window into their stories on social media. It has been an honor to have met you and been a part of your healing.

NEW ADVENTURES

Grief Reiki® participated in many new adventures this year.

2018 was the year of FaceBook Live. I was a weekly guest with my dear friend in grief, Andrew from Music To Grieve To where we spoke about grief-related topics and accompanying music tracks. Our weekly show called, Andrew and Sharon Talk About Grief gave us an opportunity to discuss everything from the loss of a pet to the suicide of Avicci. I will be forever grateful to Andrew for this wonderful opportunity.

As a result of my collaboration with Andrew, I found the courage to start my own weekly FaceBook Live program called The Grief and Healing Corner where my guests included:

Episode 2 – Annah Elizabeth, The Five Facets of Healing

Episode 3 – Lindsay Marie Gibson, Just Be

Episode 4 – Angela Viesta, Adult Orphan Collective

Episode 5 – Shelby Forsythia, Coming Back Podcast

Episode 6 – Nathalie Himmelrich, Grieving Parents Network

Episode 7 – Cassandra Ceyla, Alchemy Cass

Episode 8 – Cathy Cheshire, Thriving After Loss

Episode 9 – Melody Nolan, Treasure Lives

Episode 10 – Rachelle Jones, Grief Recovery with Rachelle

Episode 11 – Andrew McCluskey, Music To Grieve To

Episode 12 – Robin Chodak, Suicide Survivors Support Community

Episode 13 – Henri Hebert, Inspiring You

Episode 14 – V. Ophelia Rigualt, Grief Coach Ophelia

Episode 15 – Linda Findlay, Mourning Discoveries & Bereavement Cruise

Episode 16 – Sharon Brubaker, Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist

Episode 17 – Sandy Evans-Pullin, Reiki Balance N Bliss

Episode 18 – John Polo, Better Not Bitter Widower

Episode 19– Lisa Ingrassia, A Daughter’s Love

Episode 20 – Elizabeth Copland, Grief Dialogues

Episode 21 – Ellen Monsees, Advanced Grief Recovery Method Specialist

Episode 22 – Tonya McKenzie, Sands and Shores

Episode 23 – Michael Gershe, The Magic of Life

I was also proud to participate in a number of summits including A Grief Felt Around the World Twitter Chat, Advent Calendar for Bereaved Parents and After Chloe and Friends Living After Loss Online Summit. It was such a pleasure to be able to share the tools that helped me get through my own grief in the hope they may help others.

I was also a contributing author for two books. The one that was published this year was Grief Dialogues: The Book where two of my poems were featured with pieces from 60 other authors. The other one should be published in 2019!

I was featured in LA’s own Voyage LA Magazine’s list of “LA’s Most Inspiring Stories.”  This article provided an overview of Grief Reiki®, how I got to where I am , and if luck played a meaningful role in my life and business.

Last but not least, our first online course, Grief Reiki® Healing Program, was launched on Udemy. By the end of the year, we had over 300 students from 25 different countries sign up. I am so proud of this program!

SAYING GOODBYE

This was also a year of professional changes for me. Although I quit my cybersecurity job at the end of last year, I found it too cost prohibitive to live in Los Angeles and run Grief Reiki® full-time. As result, I went back to cybersecurity (hopefully on a temporary basis)in support of the Air Force’s Global Positioning Satellite Program. Although is isn’t my heart, it is what is meant to be right now. Once I let go of the story I was telling myself about being a failure, I realized that everything fell into to place for me when I needed it most. And for that all I can say is thank you 2018.

I am looking forward to new challenges and opportunities in 2019!

Sending you love, comfort and peace!
