cw: grief, loss of a parent
Life happens in the in-between. In-between sadness can be laughter. In-between heaviness, there can be light.
And no one knows that more than my guest, Brandy Morris. Brandy set about on her Year of Contrast as she both mourned the loss of loved ones (her Nana and her best friend – her dad) AND developed a more beautiful, deeper, more vulnerable relationship with her now fiancé. She learned how to receive out of necessity…the need to be supported and loved on…a lesson we could ALL use a little help learning.
Also? It’s ok to be sad for however long you need to be. There is no time limit on grief or sadness or really, any emotion.
The lesson? We are complex creatures capable of navigating the spaces in-between and holding space for both.
Listen in to hear Brandy’s story of grief and her Year of Contrast and know that you are not alone.

I am Bridgerton steamy sex scene level OBSESSED with helping women figure out exactly why they're so checked out and lie awake at night thinking this is not the life they imagined and wondering how the hell they got here and do they need to burn it all down and start over?
Instead, I help them get clear on what a peeyourpants future means for them, get super curious and look at their lives objectively (because - hello - it's hella hard to identify what to change when we're knee deep in our emotions), decide which changes will have the biggest impact, and take intentional and thoughtful actions without having to burn down their entire world.
And because I'm a professional bossypants (actual title) and have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy - I'll get you there faster and with lots of inappropriate laughter while we do the deep inner work.
