“If you’re lost … if you’re gone … if you can barely absorb the words on this page … I want you to hold this truth in your heart: when it’s your time to go, you won’t wish you had spent more time grieving; you’ll wish you had spent more time living.”— Christina Rasmussen
When you lose something precious — a partner, a child, a piece of your identity, a cherished belief, or an unrealized dream — it can feel as though your whole body shuts down.
But your brain? That’s another story.
Your brain is actually primed for reinvention — new hope, new light, new perspectives.
It’s the most powerful tool for getting past grief in the world.
You just have to learn how to use it.
This book shows you how to do it.
With clear-spoken science + inspiring stories, SECOND FIRSTS: Live, Laugh and Love Again guides you through The 5-step Life Reentry Model: a revolutionary process that turns the whole notion of ‘getting past grief’ inside out — taking loss out of the spotlight, and placing life front + center.
With life after loss pioneer Christina Rasmussen as your guide, you’ll discover how to move out of the ‘waiting room’ of grief + create the life that you want.
“Second Firsts will change the way you think about life after loss. With simplicity, science, and raw authenticity, Christina takes you on a journey from a world of loneliness and pain to one of possibilities and action. Her kind and knowledgeable words provide hope and show you that loss can actually inspire the strength and conviction to create the life of your dreams. And her own life stands as a testament to the power of this process.”
