Writing a Book on Grief, Love & Happiness
Guest Speaker ~ Emily Thiroux Threatt
“Find ways you can write. There is something about getting it out of your head. If I don’t write things down, it’ll stay in my head and interferes with anything else I am doing. When I write it, I can get over it and focus on the moment.”
– Emily Thiroux Threatt
Writing about grief is not easy. The writer relives the heartbreak with each keystroke and time spend editing and re-writing. So why do we write the books centered on our experience of living life after death of a loved one?
Emily Thiroux Threatt ended our time together with the best explanation, “I feel like the more I share, the more I talk about it, the more comfort and support I can bring to people. And, that’s what I want to do. That’s my intention.”
Our conversation begins with discussing the two last names she has kept to honor the men she loved. Although elements of her life story are heartbreaking, she focuses on loving and living in joy. She shares insights on how to find the blessings to focus your attention.
Emily is aforward thinker. She has a natural gift for seeing a solution for problems that many were not aware of at the time. You will appreciate her hard work to get computers for college students.
Pour yourself a cup of green tea and enjoy this heartwarming conversation of self-expression and experiencing joy after the loss of a loved one.
