About Smiling Wisdom
Having to Say Goodbye
During a cancer scare, I felt it was important to write letters to my children in case I didn’t survive. I couldn’t accomplish the letters at the time. At the time, saying goodbye felt like giving in to cancer and giving up hope. Later, I became a life coach with a specialty of end-of-life coaching. After working with clients to write love letters to their families, I learned that they had the same paralysis of words that I did.
Love Letters to the Family
With some deep reflection, I called upon my love for writing and design. After hours of emotional writing, I finally wrote my letters to my friends and family. Many of the letters are now Smiling Wisdom greeting cards. Writing prompted an epiphany–We should share how we feel about others now, while we are alive–not just as words to leave behind. So I created a line of greeting card gift sets to share with others now, and after we are gone.
My inspiration comes from others who have positively impacted my life in both small and big ways. I write in honor of friends and family that have passed. I write from love, pain, sorrow, misunderstandings, appreciation, and hope. I use a very wide pallet of colors, textures, my favorite animals, and words that make me happy.
