Grief to Great: Prologue
GRIEF TO GREAT MEMOIR SERIES A loving husband, a new comfortable home, a reasonably good job, 6 children and another baby on his way … what more could a woman ask for in life. But on 23 December 2010, Kaseh’s life took a sudden turn when her husband failed to survive his first heart attack ever. Sandwiched between grief, pregnancy, orphaned children to raise, transactions related to the death, household chores, work demands, financial challenges, and a demented father to care for, she intensified her masculinity and task-orientation. She conditioned herself not to feel, acting like a robot. Eventually, she realized that she was losing many of her qualities and abilities. She just did not know herself anymore. In this memoir, Kaseh shares how faith in divinity, awareness, and consciousness of the changes within her, self-empowerment and professional support came together to help her survive the loss and reinvent herself for a better life. The series is a must-read for those who are embarking on a loss and reinvention journey. Each one addressing a different impact of the grief. ‘Grief to Great: Prologue’ sets the context for forthcoming series.
