Living Onwards: Navigating Grief and Finding Hope
Hello and welcome to the all-new Living Onwards podcast! 🎙️ In this episode, the first of season 1, I'm simply introducing what this podcast is about and why you should join us in the future. First of all, let me introduce myself. I’m your host, Sarah. I have a beautiful adult daughter, two cats who run the house, and a dog who tries her best not to be managed by the cats. I also work full-time. You might wonder why I’m sharing this information upfront, but it’s important because I want you to know who I am and why I started this podcast. In addition to all that, I’m a widow who lost my husband in January 2024 to cancer after a 10-year battle. We were, and are, a cancer family, and losing him was devastating. Long before we lost Carlos, I grieved the loss of normality in our lives, the future we envisioned, and the constant changes that cancer brought to our door. This podcast is brought to you by someone who is grieving and has grieved herself, someone who is figuring out how to live onwards. This isn’t about making money or solely about cancer or pet loss. It’s about sharing our stories, hearing yours, and learning together how to move forward, not just move on. If you’re looking for inspiration in your journey or tips on navigating life’s challenges caused by grief, Living Onwards is here for you. This podcast aims to offer a unique blend of support and encouragement. By tuning in, you’ll discover that others are going through the grief journey just like you and find tidbits that help with your path toward living onwards. Let’s be real: grief is hard, grief sucks, and it’s not fair. It’s something you have to do, but no one wants to do it. This podcast will tackle tough topics and focus on how to use those experiences to live onwards. We’re not moving on; we’re moving forward together. Expect some tears and laughter along the way. The Living Onwards podcast is available on all major podcast platforms, including Apple, Spotify, and Google Podcasts.
