Grief, Griever, Grieving, Yuck! The G word no one wants associated to them. The truth is, we are all grieving at some time or another.
When I am working with clients, hosting a webinar or presenting to a full room, I always begin with the definition of Grief. So let me share with you how this looks.
~The normal and natural reaction to any loss
It is also
~ The conflicting feelings caused by the end of or change in a familiar pattern of behavior.

We also talk about some of the 40+ losses a person can experience throughout their lifetime, because grief is not just death and divorce.
How many life changes have you had in your life within the past 5 years?
~have you moved?
~children leave home ?
~not feel supported by your supervisor?
Along with these changes may come physical signs of grief such as irritability, changes in your eating habits, disrupted sleep and many others. The only way to move beyond our grief is taking action. Time will not heal, actions will.
Society does not allow us to feel it is ok to grieve, and if we do , it should not be for an extended period of time. Have you ever thought about how long your employer gives you off if a family member dies? Not nearly enough time and when you come back, you are expected be on your “A” game.
