In the Face of Loss

3 ChoicesBad things will happen in life, it’s just how it goes, there is no explanation or justification.   Can we alter the things that happen in life? Is it “written in the stars?”  These are questions, I continuously ponder.  However, with that being said, I believe we must find a way to see the positive or at least make something positive come out of loss and tragedy.  There is a lesson in everything that happens, no matter how tragic.  Maybe it is a death of a loved one that is not letting you move forward. It is through having had this person in your life, that you must learn the true meaning of life and bravery. They were placed in your life as a gift, however short that time was. Death is a constant reminder, that we are on “borrowed’ time and there is never a guarantee of a long life. And while, the pain of losing a loved one is enormous, we must find the strength to surpass that pain and honor our loved ones by living a life they would be proud of.  Moving forward.

Change, whether good or bad, helps us grow and learn and become better human beings, even if you can’t see it while it’s happening.  Sometimes, out of tragic events, certain people are placed in our paths that affect our lives for the better.  There will never be an explanation for loss and pain, but there must be an effort to become a better person and to grow as we continue our life’s path. We must learn to be grateful for every moment we have with our loved ones, however boring and monotonous life may become.

Carpe Diem.  ~LR
