Welcome to Losses Become Gains! If you’ve stumbled on the LBG Journal, chances are you’re going through something tough right now. Or, you’ve already experienced a form loss you’re trying to cope with. I want to warmly welcome you to my blog, and start off by saying you are so not alone.
Who Am I?
I like to think of myself as an empathetic person who’s known to give some pretty good advice. I’m here to be a sounding board, a friendly face, and a helping hand when you need a north star. I want to be a resource you can lean on to help you through a difficult, exhausting, heartbreaking (however you want to word it) time.
After losing my mom, dad, and beloved 19-year-old dog—oh, and going through a breakup—all within two years, I had the weight of the world on my shoulders and still had to function each day. After a lot of patience, soul searching, and research, I found my happy and gained a beautiful perspective on life. My mission? To help you or loved ones struggling with any kind of loss do the same.

What Losses Become Gains Is About
Whether it’s the loss of a loved one, a cherished pet, relationship, job (the list goes on)—the basic principles of grief and loss can feel the same. Coping with a “new normal” and the undeniable hole in our hearts can be relatable across the board.
I want LBG to be a real, relatable resource for you. My hope is it provides you a community and tools to reframe the way you think about your loss and turn it around to gain a positive, optimistic outlook on life.
At the beginning of each post, you’ll find what “gain” you’ll take away . With everything you read, I want to make what you’ll be getting out of the content as transparent as possible. Pretty soon, you’ll feel a renewed sense of self and begin healing in a way that will last. There’s just one thing you need to focus on here: Make your losses become your gains. I can’t wait to take this journey with you!
