It hurt. Didn’t it?
Sometimes it still does. It was a turning point in your life.
I understand. We all have had (more than one) time when something happened that changed us. Was it a mistake? Or, an accident? Was it “that diagnosis”? Did you lose someone close to you?
But look at you. You survived. You have grown stronger. The worst is behind you.
Do you want to feel better? Do you want to continue your healing process?
My two guests on Saturday can show you how. They know because they have gone through major losses. They both have learned through their pain that there can be more.
Joni Aldrich, a good friend and regular guest here, lost her husband to cancer in 2009. Chris Jerry lost his daughter to a hospital error the same year.
Their message – you can heal and help others by being an advocate. YES, YOU! In fact, they wrote a book about it Advocacy Heals U
It may simply speaking up for yourself, or for someone else. Or, you can speak out for a cause. Just do something to help others. There has never been a better time to combine networking, the ripple effect, and social media tactics to make a difference in someone else’s life.
When you do this, you help others to heal. When you help others, you help yourself to heal. Joni and Chris call this, “The Event. The Need. The Call.”
Join Joni, Chris and me on “Toula’s Tips for Caregivers” Saturday at 11AM on WBOB Radio 600AM or 100.3FM, or on www.wbobradio.com.
