Are you over it? The 'it's' in your life that have caused grief. Maybe your 'it' was trauma or obstacles you've had to overcome, a past relationship or a friend that has departed your life. Are you over it?

Generally it's about loss, the loss of a job, a marriage, a loved one. Would you say that you have been able to recover from the grief of a loss in your life?

What happens if you think you're over that loss but then a trigger pops up and quickly reminds you of that grief? Todd and Wendie recently experienced that little trigger with the loss of their sweet family dog, Kodie. Kodie was 14 and a half years old and lived such a great life but finally, it was her time to go. The loss of Kodie triggered a different level of grief for the family and on previous losses.

It was an opportunity to go deeper on that grief healing. Today, we talk about loss, grief and the feeling of continued loss that many of us experience throughout our lives.
