Why does it take tragedy for us to be transparent + authentic with each other?
With a loss, we question what’s important to us in life.
We reflect on the qualities we admired most about the person we have lost.
We gain mental strength.
Death certainly puts life into perspective + reminds us of our own mortality.
Loss can be the catalyst for new or better decisions, improved relationships, + can motivate us to make the changes we know we should make to live a better, more fulfilled life.
Reminder: Make the most of every moment. Experience all the ups + downs, busy + boring moments.
Appreciate ALL of your senses: sight, taste, touch, hearing, smell. Catch the details of life. See life for what it is, imperfections + all. Death grounds you to what is -the NOW.
