The name Second Firsts was born at 2:00am in December 2008 while sitting at my desk trying to figure out what I needed to do with my life. Still grieving very strongly, but also having passion for my life’s purpose, I knew then that my life was a gift and i was about to offer it to the world.

Second Firsts was not a reality yet, but a thought was planted. It was a mere idea about a new beginning. There were doubts and of course questions, and as you can imagine grief kept me company for a while after the idea was born.

After trials and errors. Doubting and believing. I resigned from my full time job. I had a dream that I was about to make come true.

In October 2010, Second Firsts was created on Facebook. I vividly remember that very first person who clicked on Like on Second Firsts wall, and it was the beginning to the journey of 15,000 people.

A community was created like no other.

And here we are today. After months of hard work, coaching, creating, and dreaming of a new way to grieve, I introduce you to our new website Second Firsts:

I am honored to share the humble beginnings with all of you. Thank you for being a part of my inspiration, my vision and my learning.

Welcome to Second Firsts.

Enjoy the articles, the coaching services, the upcoming workshops/books and the vivid photography. And above all believe that rebuilding your life is possible.

Your doubts are not as strong as your dreams. They are just louder.

All my love,

Christina Rasmussen

    Like a miraculous angel… one day Christina started leaving Emails for me, with balance wisdom and encouragement…I have suffered losing a son to mental disorder and from a painful marital breakup. Miraculously my life has come together, and I am now deeply in Love with a woman who is beautiful and wise, and has weathered much of the same. Christina, to me, is a lighthouse in the stormy sea of life and I will forever Love and respect her.

    Thank you so much for allowing me to share my story.

  • Michelle says:

    I found Second Firsts on fb just 2-3 weeks ago…but it is absolutely amazing. The quotes are thought provoking and self reflecting…which is sometimes painful but very helpful.

    Thank you so much for this!

    I just discovered your facebook page and website today. I have been in grief over a bad break up for over 5 years. It still affects me everyday. I can’t stop thinking about what happened to me. It is hard to start trusting again. I want to heal this pain and move forward to a deeper more meaningful and happier life. I am a grateful person, I have just lost some focus and some self confidence and motivation. I am fighting to regain strength and self esteem. Thank you for your site, I look forward to being inspired!

    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Taking a few minutes and actual
    effort to create a great article… but what can I
    say… I put things off a lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
