It’s been such a long time since I wrote…anything! My life is busy and great again. I find it difficult to write when I’m not sad or struggling with something or the other.
It appears I’m experiencing a sadness hiatus which is a big change from last year.
Currently I’m seeing a really great guy. Wow, it’s only when you are treated the way you deserve to be treated that you realise how bad and selfish someone else treated you in the past. It’s so refreshing and safe.
Two deaths in Feb did remind me once again of how precious life is and how it’s so easy to lose sight of this through the hustle and bustle of every day life. The other aspect that death always highlights to me is that people are never told half the things while they’re still alive than what is said at their funeral. Isn’t this so strange? I try to tell my loved ones how much I appreciate and love them as often as possible. I even did a little experiment and wrote an obituary to my closest friends and family and I try now to tell them these things. When they die, I can use the same obituary but stating that i told them all of this while they were alive and well.
You just never know when your time will run out..

Welcome back! Glad to hear the year has been amazing. Yes indeed there’s so much to learn from death. I think I’ll take a cue from you and tell my friends what I would when death comes. 😊
