Healing Your Grieving Heart Check List

I recently read Healing Your Grieving Heart After Stillbirth: 100 Practical Ideas for Parents and Families, by Alan D. Wolfelt, PH.D. and Raelynn Maloney, PH.D and found it to be an extremely helpful resource in finding little ways each day I could remember Nora and heal along the way.

I have created a healing check list based on the ideas in this book to assist me in healing by taking pictures of the 100 practical ideas I use in the book and then posting that picture on Instagram along with writing a little bit about that idea with my posted picture.  If you are interested, follow me on Instagram and you will see the 100 practical ideas to heal my grieving heart I have used that day or over the week.  You can find a link to my Instagram account on the side bar of this blog or you can find me on Instagram @ STILLBREATHINGLINDSEY.

Some of the 100 practical healing ideas I post relate to the healing theme for the month I am using, others do not, but you can see when I used one by checking out my page on this blog called "Healing Your Grieving Heart Check List," where I cross off the ideas I have used and include the date of using it.  If you like this idea, feel free to do so on your blog or on Instagram.  Be sure to label your Instagram pics as #100waysofhealing to add to mine.  That way we can see the different ways people use this book to help them heal and learn something from each other along the way.

Below are some of the photos I have taken of my different 100 practical ideas I have used to aid in healing the past month.
