Life & Death
Death is never easy, even when we know it’s coming, it can be a life sentence in itself, and one in which we may or may not have time to put our affairs in order.
While time is something some don’t have, it’s most certainly something we will never get back.
Along with deep sadness when it comes, there is also a kind or heavy weight left on our own bodies for a time, and while they say time is a great healer, which it is, and the weight slowly begins to lift, which it does, the pain never goes away.
In life we have all experienced sadness, loneliness, helplessness, hunger, depression, anger, hurt and heartbreak. But we also experience much joy, happinesses, excitement, hope, gratitude, satisfaction, kindness, confidence and periods of awe.
Each one being a natural emotion, an emotion that we must experience in life, it is life.
It’s how we cope and handle such emotions that test us, we must all at some point sit down take a deep breath and take stock of our lives, we don’t have to wait until a loved one has been told they only have a limited time left, nor for them to die.
We are all given a choice in life, the path we take, there are just as many who take the wrong path as those who take the right, but either way we all experience emotion, they weren’t wrong when they said ‘Life is a rollercoaster’.
Life is a lesson, one which can be a continuous battle, the lesson begins the moment we take our first breath until the moment we take our last, while it can be trying at times always remember, ‘Always a lesson, never a fail’
We can forgive, even though we may not forget.
A new door will open, even when others close.
Our heart will heel, after it’s been broken.
We can be kind, even to those who are unkind.
Don’t be afraid your life will end and don’t be at war with yourself or others, live life, it’s a journey with lessons along the way, be happy in yourself and love yourself and others, you’ll pass the test, and when you arrive at your final destination you’ll be at peace with yourself.
~Don’t just survive, shine.
