I'm Kiera!

I used to be a memory hoarder.
That all changed when I inherited collections from generations past.

Trigger Warning:

Skip this episode if you’re “in” it right now and don’t have the space to start processing your grief.

This episode will be here and ready for you when you are.

That said, I also don’t hold back with my language in this episode so there may be an occasional loving F-bomb or 2 dropped throughout. So if you’re listening with littles in the car – maybe pause here and come back to me when you can pop some headphones on. 

If you’ve been following me for any bit of time you probably already know that I have experienced several significant losses of close family members, friends and lifelong pets in the past.  I’ve been there to support friends as they have experienced infertility, loss of parents, children, friends, and partners in their darkest of days while they were prepping for and processing their losses.

To that end, I feel like I’ve earned some grief stripes. 

I want this podcast to create space in the world to share stories that help us connect to each other, our world and process our legacies. I also don’t want to shy away from the hard topics just because that is what has conventionally been done.

This is our safe space to chat and grow together. 

Our episode this week covers the topic of grief and gives permission to seek and find joy during the darkest of your days.

What our guest this week, Sarah Marchione, and I like to call:

“The Rainbow Effect.”

Sarah is no stranger to grief. Our not-so-silent grief was actually one of the things that drew us together and helped us connect instantly and on an intensely deep level. We’ll cover more of the story inside today’s episode, linked above.

In the episode we talk about several resources, books, Netflix Shows and more that I wanted to link here for quick reference should you be interested later. Take them or leave them.
