Let Your Dreams Lead You

Widows forget to dream, they lose their sense of joy when their loved one is gone.  What you have to learn is that you deserve all the good things in life!

Your dreams deserve another try.  It’s easy to blame ourselves when things don’t work out the first time we try them.  But it’s time to shrug off your mistakes, ignore your “flaws”, focus on your strengths and never, ever give up.

Life of a widow is hard, unbalanced and painful, but give yourself a second chance.  You are unique and extraordinary, so see the beauty in yourself.  Other people already do!

You have so much to offer the world.  It’s almost second nature to shrug off compliments instead of accepting them.  But you’re someone that is loved with many strengths and undeniable beauty.

You are in charge of your dreams.  It’s true that there are things beyond everyone’s control.  But you have the power to dust yourself off and try again.  The power to make great choices and smart moves.  The power to open your heart and mind to all life has to offer.

Tap into you inner power and live your dreams – no one is going to do it for you.

      An efficient and well used way to connect with other widows, and get support and encourage is to go to Facebook and in the search bar type in “The Sisterhood of Widows – Closed Group for Widows”.

      Once on the Facebook page – Request to Join – Answer ALL three security questions. If your request is approved you will join a group of widows from around the world that support and encourage each other.

      Rules for Closed Facebook Group

    Very disappointed it said not to post excessive bible quotes. I would of never survived being a widow without leaning on Our Lord and Savior Jesus to have gotten through this trial. He favors the widow in several biblical verses and tells us not to forget her.

      Hi Amy. I also couldn’t have made it without God’s help, so I understand your viewpoint. The group is made up of widows from all over and they all find their healing in their own way. There are Christian widows in the group and they talk about their faith helping them. The main word in the rule is “excessive” bible quotes. We had one widow that only posted pages and pages of the bible. It was too much and some felt like they were being preached to. Hope that helps explain this rule. Thank you, Mary Francis
