5 Steps How Fashion Stylist,Tohni Jean Overcame Grief

Hi Everyone,

It feels great to be able to have my fingers touch my keyboard again. I took time off from blogging. As a lot you know, seven months ago I lost my beloved father and it has been a devasting and challenging time for me. I was unable to focus on anything. The reality of losing both parents and having no grandparents for my children saddened me even more.

My husband and the support from friends and family, encouraged me to take time to grieve. At times it was very difficult with two young children who need my attention, interrupting my grieving process.

A friend of mine lost her husband of 56 years a month before my father. She suggested that I join her for grief counseling. I was a bit reluctant at first, but went the following week. It was one of the best things I did for my family and myself. After several weeks of counseling, I am back to being my creative and loving self. I have a brighter outlook. I’m living a happy life as my dad would have wanted. He will always be my hero!  I am so grateful for my husband, children, family, friends and followers. Thank you for your unconditional love and support! #YourGirlIsBack!
