Life Can Change In A Heart Beat Jenny Sellers Inspires Us With Her Amazing Story
If you are going through grief or are in the process of finding purpose in your life, this episode is perfect for you. Gracing today’s episode is Jenny Sellers, whose life experiences somehow resonated with mine. We both lost someone we love. I lost my father on 28th of April 2008. Jenny’s fiancé passed on the 28th of April 2014. Sudden and unexpected life events push us to find and rebuild ourselves – including our values, our vision and even our faith.
Jenny’s story was heartbreaking, but she was able to turn it into a beautiful one. Currently, Jenny supports the non-profit organization called Soaring Spirits International, which provides peer-based network, programs, resources, and community for those who are widowed. On her spare time, she shares her gift of spirituality with others, helping them go through their grief. She is also in the middle of rebranding “The Groves of Zen” into “True North and Empowerment”.

The Groves of Zen
“Grief itself comes with a lot of secondary losses that are not really talked about. I think as a culture, we are expected in a year’s worth of time, we have picked up the pieces and the rebuilding should be done.’”
“Give yourself time. Let some of that pressure fall away, that you have to pick it up right away. Just do it in your own time, in your own space, in your own way. Nobody else is able to dictate for you what this is supposed to look like.”
