  1. Thanks for sharing such great advice, as it is applicable to a variety of endings-friendships, break-ups, divorces, job loss, etc. Grief and loss are necessary, and these tips may help make them bearable. Here’s to new beginnings that come from endings. . . .

  2. elizabeth2560 – ABOUT ALMOST SPRING Two and a half years ago my 37 year marriage ended suddenly through no choice of my own. I survived the heartache. I have taken control of my present. I am planning my own destiny, which is moving onwards to a life of purpose and meaning. This is my journey.

    Thanks for these tips. I haven’t heard of the expression ‘get your down dog on’ but I think I gathered what you mean.
    I understand the three parts of #3 only too well.
    It is also something that I have noticed is a theme in a lot of your posts.
    I look for that, the lift at the end. 🙂

  3. Love the email idea! I have a large family and they all reached out so wonderfully, offering me a place to stay if needed. I’m slowly telling my friends now about the separation and pending divorce. As always, wonderful advice… Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  4. reocochran – I am experiencing crazy and hapless adventures in dating that may interest people over fifty. I am now 65 this year (2017) and enjoy taking photographs, incorporating stories or poetry on my blog. I have many old posts which are informative and written like essays. I have several love stories collected from family and friends. Even strangers spill their stories, since I am a grown version of the girl next door. I have been trying to live a healthy lifestyle with better food selections and active hiking and walking. I have written four children's books and illustrated them. They are not published but a battered women's shelter used one about neglect and abuse for their children's program and a 4H group used my "Kissing a Bunny is like saying a Prayer" as a coloring book. Please comment or respond so I may get a chance to know you. Sincerely, Robin

    I like yoga and meditation, scheduling tears but the reaching out, that is so hard for me. I find a lot of my struggling to get through things times, I just shut down. I am used to being the giver. Good advice and I will work on the letting it all hang out part!!
