    TRAUMA AND HALLOWEEN

    Mon 10.31.22
    | 9:30 am

    Halloween can be a really hard time for people who have lost loved ones to traumatic accidents and events. Costumes and themes can be triggering, so if you’re in that place, we just want you to know it’s okay to unplug and be a hermit for Halloween. We are sending you so much love as you listen to your body, care for yourself, and heal.

  • Thu 10.27.22 | 8:00 pm

    The Light After Loss Remember Walk is completely free to participate—and you can walk from wherever you are!

    For some, it’s the only safe space they have to talk about a loved one who has died. For others, it can be an incredible learning opportunity and way to support others. Last year, we had an amazing group of young boys from the UK walk with their dads and troop leader to ask questions and share stories surrounding loved ones who have died.

    This year, we expect even more families and friends to join in! If you want to honor someone you’ve lost by paying it forward to help other families, you can start a fundraising page or even a team. The bonus of starting a fundraiser is you get fun perks along the way. For example, when you hit $30, you’ll get an awesome fun pack shipped to you to assist you on your walk complete with lights, glow sticks, helpful question cards, and more!

    “For those who know the depths of loss. You have every right to grieve. And an even greater privilege to breathe. May you fill your vacancies with life in abundance and in service to hearts like yours.”

    It’s challenging to bring awareness to something that’s terribly heartbreaking and yet we must… National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day honors those lives lost to miscarriage, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, stillbirth, the death of a newborn, and more.

    We must do better. As a society. As neighbors. As friends. As family. It’s easy to want to run from the pain of others, especially when the loss comes unexpectedly early. And it’s easy to forget someone’s loss, which is incredibly sad too.

    Entering into another person’s suffering scary because it’s unknown, but we must be brave. We must choose love over fear. Your #presence can be incredibly healing. And your remembering can be incredibly #healing too.

    For those facing a terminal diagnosis of a baby in utero, please know that we offer maternity sessions as a part of the Love Not Lost experience to preserve memories while you can still feel their love, energy, and life inside. This photo is of the very first family we ever served… little Elania had Trisomy 13 and survived for almost 2 hours after she was born. Everyone deserves to be loved and remembered.

    Design Text: Living With Metastatic Breast Cancer
    Thu 10.13.22 | 9:00 am

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and today is specifically metastatic breast cancer awareness day. Throughout this month, you’ll probably read statistics across the internet, but there are people and families behind those numbers.

    Meet Andrea. We were blown away that someone in NY found our website after we had just launched it at the start of 2016. Andrea applied for a session and shared her metastatic breast cancer diagnosis. We met her in Central Park and had an amazing session with her two teenage sons. We did another session with them two years later as her older son was getting ready to go to college. We’ve kept in touch and are so inspired by her journey. She’s got a huge heart to help and love others. As her cancer has spread, she’s let us know “I take a lickin’ & keep on tickin’.”

    Every number has a story. Every number is full of love. Every number you read this week is a beloved sibling, parent, child, family member, friend. Every number is a beautiful soul.

    May we continue to show up for people living with a breast cancer diagnosis to love and support them in their journey, however we’re able <3 May we also continue to support those who have lost a loved one to breast cancer as well. There are many of us.

    It’s world hospice and palliative care day. Women have led the way in caring for the chronically sick and dying, but it wasn’t until the 1960s that end-of-life care became a global movement. Dr. Cicely Saunders (in the UK) influenced the modern concept of Hospice as we know it today—but even then, volunteers were the only ones caring for people in the US. It wasn’t until the 1990s that Medicare authorized formal hospice care in the US and it was taken much more seriously.

    We have come a long way, but we have much work to do to ensure people feel loved, supported, and cared for in their last days, months, and years. Over 1/3 of the population relies on these services in their last season of life. So today, we just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the hospice and palliative care workers who give their hearts to help love people near and at their end. You make such a difference in the world.

    DEAR LIFE PODCAST CLIP
    Fri 10.07.22 | 6:00 pm

    From Episode 21 of @dearlifepodcast with @christinarasmussen7, “What The Loss of My Daughter Taught Me About Love.”

    In personal and professional community, we often are at a loss for what to do in grief. If you give this episode a listen, in Christina’s words, “We speak about how the old model of grief shows up in the workplace and with our family and friends. Things like getting creative with how managers support employees who are experiencing loss, the importance of language and the words we say and things we do trying to support people but often creating more pain or a feeling of dismissal. If you are a manager or CEO in a company, I encourage you to listen to this episode, or share it with someone that is.”

    It’s all connected. We talk a lot about mental health, especially weeks like this one where there’s a lot of discussion to raise awareness… but we want to encourage you to think about mental health alongside of physical health, emotional health, and spiritual health.

    We are learning more and more that our gut is directly connected to our brain and may even control how our brain behaves. So what we eat and drink might actually be even more important in the mental health puzzle than we originally thought.

    “For decades, researchers and doctors thought that anxiety and depression contributed to these problems [issues in the gut]. But our studies and others show that it may also be the other way around,” Pasricha says in a John Hopkins article about the gut brain connection.

    There are also studies that show actual correlation supporting the Eastern Medicine beliefs that emotions are connected to different organs within the body. One study from 2017 published in the National Library of Medicine at the NIH shows grief and sadness in the lungs, anger in the liver, happiness in the heart, and more.

    We share all of this as a reminder to address the whole. If you’re solely focused on the mind and mental health, your solutions and support may not be as effective because your mind and nervous system are interconnected to so many other systems within your body. You are a whole, interconnected being. Everything works together to bring healing.

    Sometimes all you need to do to help someone is show up. Not to say or do anything, but just be present with them.

    Have you joined the LNL book club yet in our Love Well Community?

    Last month, we gathered to discuss the #Griefwalker documentary, which was incredibly powerful. Here’s a quote that struck a chord in all of us when speaking about death: “Everyone does the job for you… which makes your own death a rumor too. If you can’t anticipate your own death, then how strongly in this life are you?”

    He then goes on to say, “It’s not human to fear death.” We have been taught that death is a punishment, that it’s something to fear. We had such rich conversation together discussing this profound and powerful documentary.

    There are many things in life we have to unlearn as we mature and get older. Being afraid of death is one of them.

    We’d love for you to join us in the next conversation on Nov 10th as we read and discuss the book Confessions of a Funeral Director. Join us on The Love Well today — lovenotlost.org/lovewell
