Lessons from Neverland. Finding New Reasons to Thrive After Loss with Melissa Hull

  1. Lessons from Neverland. Finding New Reasons to Thrive After Loss with Melissa Hull Emily Thiroux Threatt 32:06

What would your reaction be if life made you deal with the most terrible tragedy any parent can face? 

In today’s episode, I’m joined by the Speaker, Author, and Master Coach, Melissa Hull. Dealing with emotionally painful experiences became normal early on in Melissa’s life; her mother was diagnosed with cancer when she was ten years old, and her relationship with her father was far from being a loving and caring one. She is the author of “Lessons From Neverland,” a book that narrates Melissa’s journey of Grief, self-compassion, and healing after the loss of her four-year-old son, Drew. 

Throughout our conversation, you’ll hear Melissa’s Grief journey, the tools that helped her stop judging and blaming herself, and where she got the strength to deal with the unimaginable, unwanted life that began after losing Drew. Melissa also talks about how she transformed an idea into her life’s purpose, her focus on discovering the woman she knew she could become after the accident, and more. 

Tune in and listen to episode 212 of Grief and Happiness, and let Melissa show you the path to new ways to thrive after loss.

In This Episode, You Will Learn:

  • About Melissa’s challenging childhood (1:20)
  • The day tragedy touched Melissa’s life (3:30)
  • How Melissa transformed an idea into her purpose (8:50)
  • Melissa’s mission of becoming her best version (13:10)
  • The inner work that helped Melissa stop punishing herself (19:00)
  • How to deal when things “get back to normal” after a loss (22:30)

Emily Thiroux Threatt Podcast Host, Facilitator, Author

Having gone through the experience of the deaths of so many loved ones, I have learned to face life with love, optimism, and joy.

I have kept journals and written to express myself most of my life which led me to a career of teaching writing and writing books. I naturally turned to writing to help deal with my grief, then I discovered I could use writing to help friends deal with grief, too.

In contemplating how I could best help the grieving people I was working with, my Ignite moment came when realized the importance of helping people understand the importance of happiness and how they could grieve and be happy at the same time.

To share my message, I host the Grief and Happiness podcast, I wrote the book Loving and Living Your Way Though Grief, I facilitate weekly meetings of the Grief and Happiness Alliance, I founded the Grief and Happiness nonprofit foundation, I publish a weekly newsletter and blog, and my new book, The Grief and Happiness Handbook is coming out soon.
