That’s what happened to Kristine Carlson. Her husband, Richard, was traveling the world and sharing his message of Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff. Kristine was doing some writing in the series and raising their teen girls.
As his plane was descending, on the way to yet another presentation, Richard suffered a pulmonary embolism and died. He was 45.
Kristine was left with life without her soulmate, and with the mantel of her husband’s message.
What did Kristine do? She grieved. She questioned her life. She questioned “why?” and “what now?” And then, she found a path through the grief. She found herself on what Joseph Campbell called, “The Hero’s Journey.”
And here is what Kristine realized: we ALL suffer losses. We ALL have struggles. And we ALL have to make a choice about the path we choose.
Many of us want to take that same journey, that path to our Hero-ness… but we don’t know how.
So, Kris decided to share her journey in her new book, From Heartbreak To Wholeness.
And I had the joy of having Kristine on my podcast for this second time, to discuss the journey. And to discuss how this is everyone’s journey. How do we choose Hero over Victim? Listen in as Kris and I discuss this important journey.
