The Mary Mac Show | The Gift of Simplicity

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 57, we discuss how simplifying our surroundings and the way we live our life can lead to a calmer everyday existence while we are working through our grieving process.

So often when we are grieving a significant individual in our lives, we don’t take the time to consider how we can simplify things so we don’t feel so overwhelmed.

In this episode we look at various ways to decrease our tasks and pressure. It helps us to think through this process and minimize our lifestyle so we release additional pressure that is not needed.

A website that I ran across recently helps us to scream out our frustration and anger. Go to Just Scream! A wonderful service where you call in to this telephone number and literally just scream into the phone and hang up. Very cathartic.

The Mary Mac Show | The Power of Forgiveness

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

This week we speak about a difficult and painful subject. Forgiving others and ourselves is something that few want to talk about and less want to do.

But when unforgiveness is left to fester inside for a long time, it can lead to emotional, physical and spiritual strife which does not serve us well.

And, yes, this topic may be too early in your grieving process and I can understand that. But do take the time to learn what can happen when we let things build causing all kinds of havoc on our mind, body and spirit.

Join me in listening in to Episode 43 to take a look at what happens when we are unable or unwilling to forgive and how it affects us.

All Souls Day

Catholics around the world commemorate All Souls Day today, November 2nd. When I was a child I would attend service with my class. Later I would attend a lovely ceremony at one of the cemeteries where my loved ones were buried, under a beautiful white tent.

It seems to me today is a special day. A day to reflect not only on the lives who have left this world before us, but what you personally have endured since their deaths.

Good days, bad days, and sheer ugly days. Reaccessing where you’re heading without them. Recovering, if ever so slowly.

Sometimes you have that pity party and blame God for everything. This is natural and normal. I have yet to meet even the most devote person who hasn’t confided in me that they have bargained with Him for their loved one to somehow return, or being fiercely angry at the circumstances of their death or just simply because they aren’t here with them.

Remember, God is almighty. That means he can take you being livid with Him, regardless of what part you believe He played in your loved one’s death.

So on this day let us honor all the Souls who have gone before us and believe, one day, we’ll meet them again.
