Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, we have been living through many uncertainties, changes, and losses. We have revised our daily routines, relied more heavily on digital space, and many have lost jobs and loved ones. The number of suicides and divorces has soared, and we've had to be apart from some family and friends for longer than we imagined. With these challenges in mind, Coralee Quintana and Gladys Margarita Pérez share a pandemic loss journal accompanied by lovely illustrations that provides a reflective platform for anyone who has suffered a loss during this time and wishes to work through their anguish and grief to find hope again. As journalers answer introspective questions within a safe space, they learn how to care for themselves, regain control over the many emotions that surround their loss, face fears, and release guilt, resentments, and anger, all while beginning to move toward the future they envision.. Embracing Life: A Pandemic Loss Journal shares writing prompts and helpful resources to lead those grieving loss on an insightful journey within to bring complex feelings to light and move toward healing. "This invaluable workbook with beautiful illustrations underscores the central message to value oneself during this healing journey with the ultimate goal of regaining that joyful voice and inner spirit in overcoming the anxieties and releasing the personal pain and any self-doubt and guilt. This is a precious and essential gift for us all!" -Frank S. Davila, PhD, educator and author "This book really helped. I liked the privacy because I felt like I could express my feelings and vent knowing no one else was going to read it." -Marilyn Gallegos, Albuquerque, NM "My clients have lost homes, jobs, connection with colleagues, connections with teachers and fellow students and an overall sense of security. They have lost children, parents, grandparents and friends. Each day feels scary and uncertain. After I read this book, I felt a sense of hope and imagined myself using this book to help countless others." -Elisa C. DeVargas, PhD, licensed clinical psychologist, University of New Mexico
