Each Moment

It is true what they say that you will never truly understand something unless you experience it yourself.

In the past, I felt sorry for family and friends who lost their loved ones. I went to wakes, funeral services, and showed compassion. There were times when I also wept with them. But then my life went on. I just feel sad when I remember those who passed away and I say my prayers to them.

Losing someone who is actually very close to your heart can actually be different. I refer to the loss of a parent, sibling, spouse, child or a very close friend.  I have felt the change in me. Days pass by, months go by, and I carry that feeling of sadness in my heart, that feeling of loss. I believe it will linger even in the years to come and for the rest of my life. I guess this is something constant as I move along.

This little feeling in me reminds me of the bittersweet reality of life. It is just a cycle.  I can imagine how my kids will feel the same way when it will be my turn someday. All of us will feel a loss. And all of us will leave our loved ones behind. For those of us who are still here, we have to make the most out of our lives. Cherish the memories of the people who left. Be reminded about the many reasons why we have to be grateful each day, be more human, and loving to the people who are part of our journey.

  1. Thank you for the reminder. Also for the follow on my blog (for a while, I thought you’d followed my Pinoy-related blog, checked, and saw that it’s the one where I write lengthy posts to get my thoughts out of my head). So much wisdom here, keep it up (because we stay at home moms need an outlet for our thoughts, also)!

  2. You are indeed, right. you never know how it really feels until you are the one who has suffered the loss. As the saying goes, it is the leg that is hurt that feels the pain not the other leg. The advice you give here is excellent. We should do our best today in case tomorrow never comes.
