Death, the past, the future and more
Death is no respector of time or holidays. It is something we must face each and everyone of us. Yet it is also one of the things we try to not think about or deal with until we are facing death again.
This fast pased society where people are just to busy to keep in touch like they use to. Gathering as a family for weddings or funerals vowing to change and stay in touch with each other in the future.
Strife, personal pains and struggles from the past hold so many people back from being all they can be . As well as experiencing so much more for themselves and with family and friends. Even my own family is like this.
We just burried my grandmother on Dec. 30th our family has been so devided there was a question on would people show up for the service? To our amazment and pleasure they did ........ every relative but two of them showed up. Not only that but I watched as the strife melted away to hugs and tears. Some real healing happened that day and I am so glad to be there and be part of it.
What am I getting at well a couple of things really........ first death is going to come for all of us and all those we love. Death is not an end but a beginning of the next faze of the journey. Of course those left behind will grieving thats natural to mourn the departed. It's also natural to celibrate their life and keep them living within you and your memories of them.
Secondly it's the pains and trials that keep family from being family , friends from being friends and more. Keeping these things within you can cause stress that becomes physical or emotional pains in the long run. Non of us can change our past sure we would like to do over or repair some of those things . Others are just to horible to forgive...... but it's not so much about who hurt you it's about you. How long are you willing to allow another person to harm you by you keeping that pain in. Forgive but don't forget and have a good future without anything keeping you back emotionally or otherwise.
We are human we make mistakes but the great thing about that is we can get back up and try again. Nobody can say we are not persistant as a race . We will fight and fight and fight for what is right. So fight for you , your health and well being you are worth it are you not?
As you see I'm not perfect either but I choose to forgive and work on it daily. The future looks much brighter when you can clear the clouds of your past trust me I know.
Just a few thoughts ........ I hope it helps DJ
