It has been 6 years since I was widowed, and I feel stronger than ever before. This is the first anniversary I do not feel too nostalgic or sorrowful. I still miss my late husband but I have achieved so much in the last 6 years, that has redefined who I am  as a woman.And that I have survived the most gruelling period,the first  year of widowhood.

The aim of my blog is to inform and share how to survive widowhood especially in the first three years.Plus how to gradually gain strength to redefine the new you. I have always enjoyed writing since I was a younger woman.I have enhanced this skill since my loss. It has been an expressive tool, enabling a therapeutic emotional release and strengthening a natural flare I have.     

I have learnt from this loss that you can survive widowhood no matter how bleak it looks when it   happens.On hindsight I drew from inner strength I did not know I had. My driving force was also my children, as I felt my survival will enable me to be strong enough to assist them survive the loss of their father.  

If you would like some tips on how to survive widowhood, follow me on this journey.

Signing off now, until next time!

Do leave a feedback and share.Thank you.
