Appreciate Life

Understanding why someone has passed on will forever be a hard question to fully answer and truly grasp.  No one wants to see someone near and dear to them pass on, however, we all know it is a part of life; it’s the circle of life. But it is those “gone too soon” moments that really seem to take an emotional toll over us.   We do not always know how to mentally process the action. And that is okay, it is the “shock” factor our body goes through and should go through in order to begin the healing process.

I have lost loved ones close and dear to me and the pain I felt was so surreal that at points I felt I could not mentally go on.  I didn’t know how to handle the pain, I don’t even know if I wanted to handle the pain.  Tears streams down my eyes even till this day if I reflect too long or too much on my deceased loved one.  But what I do know and remember are the memories, I reminisce.  The laughter, the smiles, the stories, and the great times we’ve shared and with that I am able to press on.  I am a HUGE believer in the creator, God, and I know he NEVER makes any mistakes and he loves us more than we could ever love ourselves and each other.  So when he calls his children home, it was time for them to go home.  And because I know “home” is a place of peace, joy and happiness I am no longer angry or completely sadden by the passing.  I know one day we shall all be united again and what a great rejoicing feeling that will be.

So with that we only know each other’s birth date and death date. It is the in between “dash” that we must create for ourselves. We must create a great empowering, motivating, expression on life that even after we are gone our legacy will continue to live on.  It is within our “dash” where we appreciate and cherish each other and the things around us. Life is truly a gift. And the sooner you notice, believe and trust that, the more fulfilling you can create your life to be.  I am truly grateful and thankful everyday to wake up and in my right mind, to be blessed to have one more day to continue my dream.  Tomorrow is NOT promised and therefore we should not take it lightly.  Life can be difficult at times but continue to press on creating the “dash” within your life.

This blog is dedicated to everyone that has suffered a lost one, and for those that have gone on to be with the Lord.  We love you, we miss you, and we will forever keep your memories dear to our hearts.
