My sisters passing…

I’ve not been blogging for the last two weeks or so as my sister passed away. She was diagnosed with cancer 6 years ago and had opted not to take the conventional treatment method. It’s been a challenging time for me and the family with everyone dealing with it in their own way. There is no right or wrong way to deal with death; everyone will find their own way and take away their own lessons from it.

My sister also started a blog but she never told me what the address was. A friend has the link and I’ve heard that she posted some very inspiring articles so when I get my hands on them I will post them up here to honour her memory. 🙂

I wish I could say I handled it in the most noble way possible but that is not the case. What it has done for me though is remind me to continue making a life. I was watching that film ‘Kung Fu Panda’ recently and init the character ‘Master Oogway’ says to Po the Panda: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift; that is why it is called the present.”

As tough as death can be it can also serve as a reminder that there is much to cherish about the now even though at that moment things might seem tough or challenging.

I intend to cover this topic much deeper tomorrow.

    Trust your grief will lessen with time.
    Death is inevitable and a part of our life is a preparation for it.

    Thank you Katya. I don’t look as death as much as an inevitability but rather a continuing of ones journey. Inevitble it is but not with a sense of dread but with a sense of anticipation.
