Superhero Secrets: Christina Rasmussen

We’ve had a lot of pretty incredible superheroes on #SuperheroSecrets, but our latest guest is definitely our most unique. Christina Rasmussen has dedicated her life to helping people start over after loss – founding a website and writing a book called Second Firsts. She’s also starting a brand-new nonprofit called the Life Starters, a social network to help people start over.

Sound like a depressing field? Not for Christina.

“I believe the reason why we have to experience [grief] is so that it can make us stronger, so we can go and create something really beautiful,” she says in the above video. “It’s inspiring. Pain is inspiring. Mortality is inspiring. I get inspired by mortality every day – that I get to die one day. But until then, I will make it count, every step of the way.”

So what prompted Christina to start on this path? How does she remain positive? Watch the video above to find out these and more of her #SuperheroSecrets!
