One of my AMAZING Tidy Tutor members posted in our private Facebook group, how difficult it was for her to find motivation to de-clutter the things that belonged her daughter who had passed away…
I wanted to address this, so I did post something she could do right away regarding the overwhelm that was hitting her… but I also wanted to offer more help, so I reached out to Carol Banens… I belong to a group Carol Runs for women over 50 on Facebook and she had just happened to post about grief, and wrote of her loss.. Her husband of 4 years (but together 17 years) had passed away 3 years ago, her post offered hope and sincere empathy.
We popped on zoom and had a chat about the profoundness of the situation and things that we COULD do when faced with such defatting emotions surrounded by a loved one’s things.
We talked about how we could preserve their memory without keeping everything, and that it’s ok to do nothing… Here is a link to Carol’s website. http://www.carolbanens.com
