The Mary Mac Show | Preparing Yourself For The Holiday Season

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In this week’s episode, we discuss how to prepare yourself as we encounter the year-end holidays.

No matter which ones you celebrate, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years, or many others after a loved one has died, they just don’t feel the same.

If it’s the first holiday season since you have been bereaved, or it’s a few more, trying to feel happy and enjoying the seasons as you did in the past, can be an especially difficult task.

The main thing you need to know is that you don’t have to do all you’ve done in the past.

You can decide on a different path. You can curtail your events and celebrations this year and there is nothing wrong with that.

Your emotional state is different now and you must be sensitive to that and treat yourself with more care.

So listen in to Episode 50 and please be kind to yourself as we move into this season.

The Mary Mac Show | Honoring Our Veterans

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 49, we commemorate the amazing valor of our veterans this week in the USA yet wherever you live around the world, we join with you on your special day in honoring these courageous men and women who keep us free.

Veterans are exceptional people. They go where others dare to go, do things that other dare to do, and live with the consequences.

They harbor all the pain of that experience – emotional, mental and physical.

They may come home changed to their families also emotionally, mentally and possibly physically.

They may have sustained loss of limbs, temporary or permanent injury, traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress disorder or what was once called shell shock decades ago.

We bless our veterans and the sacrifices they and their families make for our benefit…for our freedom.

If you are having difficulty, please use the following assistance:

Visit my Crisis Connections page on my site www.MaryMac.info to find telephone helpline counselors to speak with all around the world. Don’t be shy; they are there to help when you are having a hard time.

You can also visit the Gary Sinise Foundation‘s suicide prevention telephone line. If you are a veteran in crisis or concerned about one, caring VA responders are standing by to help. Dial 1-800-273-8255 and press 1.

The Disabled American’s Veterans organization or DAV.org is ready to help, as well.

Search for homeopathic doctors with the designation CCH in your area of the world. Read their sites and speak with them to determine whom you would feel most comfortable working with.

With Much Love,

Mary Mac

The Mary Mac Show | Grieving For A Nation

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In this week’s episode, I speak briefly about the grief we feel after the death of an individual and how that correlates to the grief we feel as a nation in light of all that is going on in the United States and around the world right now.

I grieve for my nation and I wanted to share my thoughts on this very important topic a few days before our election day.

People around the world know oppression and the inability to speak their mind. And, we too, are now having our free speech rights curtailed by those who wish to take our freedoms away.

Even one of our best known podcasters, Joe Rogan, has been censored for a topic he covered on his show by offended employees of the very company who just purchased his podcast.

I know people around the world who have lived in Socialist and Communist countries have experienced this grief – suppression of speech, personal freedoms and seen much violence leading to the death of family and friends.

Here, we are grieving for our nation as we are unaccustomed to having our liberties, property or lifestyle affected by those who don’t love our nation.

So if you’ve felt oppressed in your part of the world, you are welcomed to share your experiences and comments below.

With Love,

Mary Mac

The Mary Mac Show | Social Challenges II

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In this week’s episode, we continue to discuss how to help ourselves when we are struggling to face the world and slowly build a new life for ourselves.

We fight to get out more, accept invitations, start to socialize again with family, friends or even meeting new people.

It is much easier to simply curl up on the sofa with a blanket, beverage and hide from the world. And it’s fine to do this for a time.

But long term, this won’t help us.

It’s time to allow ourselves to get out now, build our confidence and be brave…a little bit at a time.

So be kind to yourself and listen in to Episode 47 to learn various ways you can help yourself.

Leave your comments below.
