What’s new…

Filed under: Bryna's Greeting — bryna @ 6:29 am

I have added an exciting dimension to my life. I am now a life coach!

As a coach, I inspire and motivate my clients to make the small changes that create the big differences in their lives. I help them go from where they are right now to where they want to be.

I encourage and support them to take action towards achieving their goals and dreams; and I have confidence in them even when they may not. I hold them accountable to do what they say they are willing to do…And, I support them as they do this step by small, sweet step…

If you or anyone you know (or love) might benefit from my style of coaching, please contact me.
I am happy to offer a complimentary consultation.

And I, personally know the benefits of coaching. It’s through the support I received from my coach that www.widowsjournal.com is here for you today…

Coming soon: www.HeartToHeartCoaching.com

Who am I?

Filed under: Bryna's Greeting — bryna @ 9:51 am

You ask who or “what” is a Bryna; and why is she putting together a website for widows & widowers, and those on the verge of becoming so. I am a person just like you, who traveled through the experience of being widowed; and figured “Somebody had to do what I wish I had when it happened to me.”

I am just an average person, 5′4″, a Pisces and 106 pounds on my “heavy” days. I have been a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a wife, a mother, a significant other and joy to the world, after a VERY long wait a “Grammy.” I have defined myself at different times of my life as a ballet dancer, as Chuck’s wife & as a Jewish American “Printress.” Now I am someone with a passion to pay it forward, because life has been good to me before, during and after the ordeal of losing my husband.

In the years following his death, I have oftentimes said, “Life would’ve been so much sweeter if he had left a rich widow, and maybe he did, I just haven’t made it yet.” This, I came to realize, was a swipe at us both because there have been financial struggles. What I omitted from this equation, is that in another way he left me very wealthy indeed. Besides the son we were blessed with and raised together, he taught me how to love and he taught me how to laugh. Both are gifts that have helped me to move on. What better legacy is there?

Now, I am interested in discovering who are you…

Welcome to my website!

Filed under: Bryna's Greeting — bryna @ 10:30 am

I am so pleased you are here!

Had there been a website like this at my fingertips when my own husband died, I would’ve learned that others had the same fears and made similar if not identical mistakes. I also would’ve learned that it’s OK to celebrate small victories, almost like one celebrates the first steps of a baby. I might have felt less alone, less unsure of myself.

After speaking with both widows and widowers and leading several support groups I have come to the conclusion that we all have a common thread. Whether it happened yesterday, last week, last year or by now is just a memory, we can all close our eyes and recall the moment we knew were losing our partners, or when it happened and certainly the day he or she was put to rest. It’s because these images never fade, that I wanted to provide a place to read stories of how others have healed. But moreso, my hope is that you find this a place where you, too, can share your words with another someone who has recently entered the fold.

I once read that “Every end is a new beginning,” It really is true… Prepare yourself to celebrate the life you have ahead. Relish our words. Then, please, share you own.

Moving on is a gift you give to yourself…

Bryna
