E97: From Heartbreak to Wholeness with Kristine Carlson


Thirteen years ago, Kristine Carlson’s husband was on a routine business trip when he died on a flight. The author of Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, Dr. Richard Carlson was—and still is—remembered in very public ways. This week, Kristine and I are talking about not getting the luxury of saying goodbye, dealing with the fear of being sucked under by sorrow, and the wild, impossible interaction Kristine and her daughters had on a flight years after her husband’s death. Plus, I’m talking about practicing permission to grieve in the real world and reading an excerpt from my new book Permission to Grieve.
