The Sisterhood of Widows

It’s very important to me that the blogs I write are filled with great content and support.

I’m committed to making “The Sisterhood of Widows” resource website a success so that their stories and coaching make it to every widow in need.

Have you ever had to manage a big change and your schedule gets thrown, and you get to that point where something has to give? It might be your new healthy habits or your side gig or even relationships you let slide.

Here’s what you do when that happens: You forgive yourself.

Then you start over. One step. One choice. And in my case, one blog posting at a time. So here I am, letting you know that you are on my mind and in my heart. Every day. You are the reason I am here – please don’t forget it!

And, if you’re struggling in any part of your life, be it healing your broken heart or something deeper, here are a couple of incredible free guides, and other amazing resources, to help you get through it:

Your struggles may mean that you need to reset the way you’re thinking. It’s so easy to get stuck in limiting beliefs, thinking you “aren’t good enough” or “don’t deserve it.” But you know what those thoughts are? Habits. Which means you can change them.

I am so proud of my workbook at: Rebalance – Restore – Rejuvenate Workbook.   It’s jam-packed with research, tips, strategies, and this 164 page workbook is designed to guide you into a future you’ve designed instead of a future that just happens.

Rather than waiting for a change of environment before you act, take action now and your environment will naturally change around you.

Whether you purchase the workbook or not, I’ve got three free guides just for you at: and their dig-deep support is designed to help you. I’m on a mission to empower widows everywhere, so please accept my gift to you.

And finally, if nobody else has told you today, let me be the first to say that I believe in you, and that I know you have it in you to rebuild your life.

    I know it takes time to mend a broken heart, but I feel as if mine will never mend. I am pushing 10 months since the love of my life was taken and I seem to feel as if it is getting worse and not better. I am doing things to keep going and going places we have never been together but that one second of quiet time brings on tears or that one song will bring it on. it could be nothing at all and sometimes they arent just little tears but horrible sobs. I am just wondering how can I ever stop the tears? or will they truly never be completely gone? and this widow’s brain is another horror. you are wonderful and I am truly thankful to have found your sight. is there anything I can do that will make it at least a little easier?

      Oh Sherry – Please do not be deceived by my work, thinking that I have all the answers because I’m still on my own journey. You’re broken heart isn’t going to heal faster than a broken bone. I didn’t even get out of the widow fog until the third year, although some widows got a clearer vision sooner and some later than I did. Yes, the daily tears do stop but at least for me they have not completely gone. I still have my times, although they are rare, I still have them. And I’m okay with that because I’ve come to accept that I will have my memories and with them my loss until the day I die. The key is that I also have love, happiness and gratefulness of life until the day I die. I’ve just learned what to focus on and what serves me. Take care, Mary Francis

        Mary Francis: Thank you again for your gift of compassion in your words. They are extremely comforting on this new journey of mine. It’s truly overwhelming and confusing for me at this time. I don’t know how to navigate except I practice one day at a time, and sometimes one minute at time. With heartfelt gratitude to you Mary Francis.
