Crying woman up close grief sad tear

Today’s story pulls at my heart strings… and I think it’s because I love my marriage so much.

Today’s guest is Kristine Carlson. For the boomers out there, you might recognize her husband Richard Carlson as the creator of the series Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff. He wrote ~ 30 books and these books have sold over 15 million copies worldwide.

Richard was the face of the brand, even though Kristine co-authored a few of them with him. But for the most part, Kristine was his supporting character. She ran the household while he ran the brand.

And then, one day totally unexpectedly, he died.

And as hard and as tragic as that was, it forced Kristine to step into her own power and take over the legacy.

What I love about this story though is most often I hear of people hitting a rock bottom and that’s what forces them to seek and to develop and be more than they were…

But in her story, it’s really interesting to hear how someone handles their pain when they already have such a solid foundation built in their mindset.

But the story gets pretty crazy and includes a stalker that’s still in jail right now because of the crap he pulled so get ready.

Today we will learn:

  • How to surrender to the unexpected
  • How to properly hold space for someone’s grief
  • How to find identify after loss
