About Me


Most of us have endured some major losses, whether from death, divorce, or unfathomable life circumstnces. Mine started early with the death of my mom when I was in high school. Over the years, I’ve learned that you can sink into despair or keep on trekking. What helps after you’ve done the initial grief work? How do you keep from falling into the abyss with each new loss?

For me, it’s searching for joy. Each day, I look for joy in unexpected places, whether it’s in a nail polish that matches my decor or discovering a tutued fairy godmother on the streets of Portland, Oregon. The journey through grief is rocky, but deep and abiding joy can be an unexpected benefit. I hope you’ll join me and share your own joyful experiences along the way.  —Diana
