On this episode, TKS discusses the heavy topic of grief, including things we often overlook in our day to day lives and approaching the topic with your children. This topic can be difficult so please be kind to yourself and take the space you need.
As mothers, we want to do everything we can to protect our little ones from things that hurt, both physically and emotionally. While we do a pretty good job, there are life events that rock our world. One of those life events is death: whether it’s the passing of a beloved pet, friend, or family member, trying to speak to children about it seems unthinkable. In addition to speaking to our children about it, we also need to think about life beyond loss. Having this conversation with your spouse, partner, and other family members can be difficult - it’s definitely one that no one wants to think about, let alone discuss in detail, but today we are lucky to have Cheyenne Bell in the studio to help us navigate this often avoided topic with compassion and tenderness.
Cheyenne Bell is a young widow, a mama to two littles, an attorney, writer, speaker, and blogger at Sense & Serendipity, a website focused on inspiring others to create a home well loved and a life well lived. A lover of home decor, vintage finds, yoga, coffee, red wine and sarcasm, Cheyenne lives in the Austin area with her two sweet kiddos.
