Episode Summary In this episode, Ian shares his perspective from an audiobook he was listening to and gives you a better understanding of grief and how sometimes happiness is not a choice. Don’t miss: Recognizing that people experience life differently can help you achieve a more open understanding of how to view the world and treat others. Understand and acknowledge that the concept “happiness is a choice” is an illusion and unfair. Looking into the layers of growth you can attain in a gradual and healing way. Allow yourself to take one step at a time and not rush the feelings you need to process as you go through your grief and healing journey. About the Host: Ian Hawkins is the Founder and Host of The Grief Code. Dealing with grief firsthand with the passing of his father back in 2005 planted the seed in Ian to discover what personal freedom and legacy truly are. This experience was the start of his journey to healing the unresolved and unknown grief that was negatively impacting every area of his life. Leaning into his own intuition led him to leave corporate and follow his purpose of creating connections for himself and others.  The Grief Code is a divinely guided process that enables every living person to uncover their unresolved and unknown grief and dramatically change their lives and the lives of those they love. Thousands of people have now moved from loss to light following this exact process.  Check Me Out On: Join The Grief Code Facebook group: ( Facebook: (  Instagram: (  LinkedIn: (  Start your healing journey with my FREE Start Program (  I hope you enjoyed this episode of The Grief Coach podcast, thank you so much for listening.  Please share it with a friend or family member that you know would benefit from hearing it too.  If you are truly ready to heal your unresolved or unknown grief, let's chat.
