E96: When a "Do-aholic" Grieves with Kristen Meinzer


One year ago, Kristen Meinzer suddenly lost her job. She was left with questions, grief, and the inevitable identity struggle that job loss produces. Today, we're talking about what to DO in the aftermath of sudden loss (and why Kristen embraces being a do-aholic), the difference between forced gratitude and practiced gratitude, and what Dolly Parton and Pollyanna have to do with grief! Also this week, I'm talking about how we all need permission to take grief into the world after a loss and reading an excerpt from my new book, Permission to Grieve.
