Finding Purpose Through Grief with Ed Owens

Transitioning From Parent To Empty Nester with Michelle Lee & Mark O'Toole

Grief can show up in many forms. Regardless of our type of loss, we’re transitioning to a new stage of life, where the things that we were used to are not the same anymore. I always say grieving should not be a process that you go through alone. There are groups you can join, there are people that can help you, and there are easier ways to go through this experience of losing someone or something.One common form of grief that people don’t often talk about, is becoming an empty nester, when your children go off to college, for example. After spending almost two decades taking care of them and identifying with being a full-time parent, oftentimes giving up on your dreams to help them follow theirs, suddenly losing all that, can be a hard pill to swallow.Today, I have an amazing dynamic duo – Michelle Lee and Mark O’Toole – that come all the way from Australia to share their journey from parents to empty nesters, and how they’ve decided to focus on helping others that go through ...

Going through the Ring of Fire with Nicole Windley

What would you do if you found out that your loved one was shot dead in his front yard?That’s a difficult and terrifying question that nobody should ever think of. But life happens and it can throw us sideways in a second, only to steer us on a better path. As Tony Robbins always says, ‘Life happens for us, not to us’ and sometimes it can give us gifts in disguise – gifts that we never asked for and, quite frankly, we certainly wouldn’t wish to receive.My guest today, Nicole Windley, had to answer that particular question, after having her boyfriend killed by a disgruntled neighbor. After his death, she went on a full journey of grieving, which was accompanied by two years of depression and a strong desire of not being part of this world anymore.But she overcame that difficult period once she finally reached out to the people around her – because, my dear friends, grief is not something anyone should deal with, alone. After nine years of that tragic event, she is now on a miss...
