Loving Life after Loss™
We were living that fairytale relationship – our friends fondly referred to us as “that couple”. Still falling in Love deeper by the year, 13 years into it. The Love Story I had written in my head, never included Rob's sudden passing. And even now, I count myself as one of the lucky ones. My heart is overflowing with countless memories. I spent my whole time with Rob being adored, nurtured and deeply loved. I never had any regrets.
I was 20 when I lost my dad to cancer; I had no idea how to cope with it. I wasn’t equipped back then. Looking back now, I received one of the most precious gifts throughout his passing: To never leave anything unsaid when it comes to Love! It became an unwritten law, etched into my heart, that I live by daily.
I had an epiphany shortly after Rob died: everything that had happened leading up to that moment, had prepared me to not only cope with losing my husband, it was the beginning of a journey that was even bigger than the two of us; a journey full of Love beyond the physical realm, one of hope, empowerment and inspiration.
The influence Rob has had on my life continues to shine from within – and I love watching him shine through our boys too! Their wisdom floors me…
Now, I want you to understand: when I say “Love beyond the physical realm” I also want to emphasise that I’m quite a down to Earth woman. My life is in the here & now – yet the gifts keep coming – and I know where they come from! I call them Hidden Gifts in Adversity; our mission is to uncover them, so we can utilise them & share them with the world.
I love spreading Love. It is the one thing that keeps coming back to us, tenfold. When I shared our story in my book “Loving Life after Loss“, I did it out of Love. I wanted to offer hope to those who think their life is over, after an adversity of such calibre. Our boys were only ten & 8 when Rob died; I knew I wanted to be the most amazing & inspiring example for them, to embrace life with all its highs & lows – and I wanted to make sure theirs was filled with more of the highs, with happiness & bucketloads of Love.
What I didn’t expect was for my book to not only become an Amazon No.1 Bestseller, it also ranked in the Top 100 of Australia – overnight!
The Birth of “Loving Life after Loss”
A couple of week later, I took the boys on a trip around the world. We needed a break, lightness and new happy memories! The journey was incredible, and so good for our souls – we still talk about it often.
One day during an interview I realised something beautiful: the idea of this very Movement was born in the same town as me: Vienna!
I was sitting in the apartment my Mum had taken over from me, when I moved to Australia; and all of a sudden I had this revelation… “I've got something the world needs!”
Reminiscing about the journey we had walked since Rob’s passing – and the incredible wave that my book “Loving Life after Loss” had caused – I felt in every cell of my body, that this was so much more than just a book. I needed to allow this to grow into something even bigger, to serve those who need healing.
I found incredible mentors to support me along my path – and here we are. When opening the doors to the Movement “Loving Life after Loss” on 19 March 2019, I simultaneously embarked on a profound healing journey myself. I created an upwards spiral… We hurt, we heal, we learn, we teach. And along the way, I met the most incredible people – some walked an intense part with me, others strolled along for a little while, and some very blessed ones stayed with me until now. I’m saying this tongue in cheek, as I’m equally blessed for the many connections I formed!
I feel blessed and honoured to hold space for so many that come onto this healing journey with us. I have an incredible team of moderators, my ModSquad, who I simply adore – they are invaluable to me and the work we offer in our Movement Loving Life after Loss™. Come and join us to experience it for yourself!
You heard a lot about the Movement and what we offer, I want you to hear directly from those who have experienced some or all the programs available to you. I feel truly honoured & humbled by their words!
