With Change Comes Opportunity
Resources help you to find ideas and solutions to the problems you face.
Understanding what has happened, seeking support, and finding good resources, like books and essays, gives you a head start to a new life.
When you need advice, where do you go? Who do you talk to? Whose opinion do you trust? Why?
Life changes, whether initiated by you, or brought about through trauma and upheaval, demand patience and clear thinking. You may want to retreat from the chaos and damage you’re feeling, and this can be done in different ways.
A retreat center offers a variety of services by persons trained and skilled in all aspects of healthy living. Program administrators can direct you to a full Wellness evaluation, or you can choose in what area you need help.
Private counselors and therapists will help you sort out what changes need to be made, and how best to accomplish that.
There are groups specific to aspects of Wellness - such as nutrition, exercise, spirituality - in which a leader initiates discussion, and participants may contribute, ask questions or just listen.
Friends and family - The people in our lives who know and love us often want to help, and will offer suggestions. Unless they are experts on the subject, I recommend thanking them, and then deciding whether to make a change by yourself, or seek professional help.
You’re in charge of your life. You have to do the work, and you reap the benefits.
“..a small sensitively written handbook that packs a valuable range of resources for those working to comfort bereaved children into a compact form.” Midwest Book Review

This book will help you and the child you care about to understand the deep impact of loss and what it takes to begin to heal.
The personal interviews offer a collective body of wisdom from those who survived the loss of a parent, and attest to the personal pain and the turmoil they felt. This book offers tools and solutions for helping a grieving child address bereavement in a positive way.
It’s an essential checklist to help keep the mind, body, and life glued together during one of life’s most trying times.—Writers Notes Magazine “Book Editor”
