Show Notes from Heather
When it comes to keeping the memory of our loved ones alive, that work is up to us.
- Allison Gilbert, Passed & Present
Grief is not about forgetting, but remembering. You may have encountered well-meaning but ill-informed friends and family who won’t speak your loved ones name because they are afraid of reminding you of the loss. What they don’t realize is you never forget someone you love. Nor would you want to.
In this episode of the Mindfulness & Grief Podcast, Allison Gilbert, Emmy award-winning journalist and author of Passed and Present: Keeping Memories of Loved Ones Alive, shares with us fun and inspiring ways to weave the stories and memories of our special people into our daily lives. She also shares the importance of being active in your own grief work, acknowledging that while we benefit from being passive recipients of support, as we move through the days, months, and years after loss, we need to be our own best friend.
From creating memories in the kitchen to using social media mindfully through grief, Allison offers tips for all ages. While we could not get to all 85 tips that she offers in her book, this episode is a great start! Allison’s tips are great way to apply mindfulness in your daily life. Consciously choosing how to be with your memories of your loved one and how to share them with others will help you maintain a continuing bond and stay connected to the love you carry inside.Please Subscribe, Rate or Review The Mindfulness & Grief Podcast
