I had the absolute honor of speaking at a women’s luncheon back in Texas a few weeks ago. At the time that I agreed to do it, I had been going through a period of stretching myself, and “step outside your comfort zone” was my motto. As the luncheon got closer, I became more and more anxious! Negative self-talk became my norm! Now that the talk is done, I’m so glad that I did it. It was so well received, and everyone was so nice. It was such a positive experience!!
I had no idea what to wear for this. I knew that I would be so nervous that I would want to be comfortable. I found this cute jumpsuit on Amazon!!!
I’ve had several people ask for a video (which there isn’t one). Others have asked for a copy. So I’ve copied my thoughts below. In all the trainings that I’ve done over my career, I’ve never had anything completely written out. This being so personal, I wanted it written out because there were just some things that I wanted to say a certain way. This is pretty much what was said on that Saturday.
Thanks so much to my wonderful friends and family who encouraged me! I’m so glad to have had this experience!!

Sharon, thank you SO much for sharing this! You have no idea how much it means to ME to be able to hear your voice as I read this, being that I couldn’t be there on the day of your talk. You speak from your heart in such a touching, believable voice. Your words can be carried by us all! Love you!

Sharon, this is really straight forward, down to earth help on getting through grief. I absolutely love the idea of having a plan C. I have to admit, I don't even have a plan B, but after reading this I want to sit down and do a little planning. I think these points are helpful for all kinds of grief, not just the grief of losing a loved one. But especially for losing someone like a spouse. I can only imagine how lost that can make someone feel. Thank you for sharing this!
