This week we released an episode with Dr. Frier on the topic of grief. I decided to release the episode a little earlier than we had planned because of all the grief we are collectively experiencing through the coronavirus.

Although I have not personally experienced the loss of someone very close to me, I have been thinking so much about the topic and have many questions around grief. The main question that I have been contemplating is, “Can we practice gratitude while we are grieving?”

Today I explore this topic with you and share with you what I am learning as I listen to podcasts, explore scripture, and speak with friends who have experienced deep loss. Although I am still processing through this, there are some interesting conclusions that I have come to that I share with you today.

We also dig into why we should not speed grief or compare losses. And how grief can actually accelerate gratitude, which doesn’t mean the pain goes away, we simply find meaning in the pain.

What are your thoughts on this topic? How do you conceptualize the topics of grief and gratitude? Find us in our private Facebook group, Hope to Recharge and let us know. As always, together IS better!
