Older and Bolder. Making the Most of Our Lives After Loss with Debbie McCulloch

  1. Older and Bolder. Making the Most of Our Lives After Loss with Debbie McCulloch Emily Thiroux Threatt 34:06

What is stopping you from living your life to the fullest, even after experiencing Grief and loss?

In this episode, I’m joined by Debbie McCulloch, the host of the Older and Bolder podcast. She is a retired Community Pharmacist who thought of podcasting as a new adventure, as she always loved writing and public speaking. Right before the launch, her husband got really sick and eventually passed, which gave podcasting a whole new meaning; it was her chance to make the most of her life. 

Debbie uses her platform to promote the stories of fifty-plus fearless and fabulous women willing to share their stories of Resilience, finding purpose, following passion, and helping others. She believes that growing older is a gift that needs to be embraced and appreciated.

Throughout this episode, Debbie shares her journey into podcasting, how starting her show impacted her mood and mental health, and the things she learned from getting in touch with new people each week. You’ll also hear Debbie’s thoughts on experiencing happiness while grieving, the multiple benefits of talking with those who get us, diving into new experiences to heal and grow, and much more.

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.
