Life is a gift
For some life can be a battle from birth. Others are born into circumstances promising a good, safe start to a life filled with possibilities
Tragedies happen, some gain strength from trials whilst others may lose their way. Miracles and blessings occur every day, some are embraced and others are never seen.
The wheel of life is forever turning. Eternally spinning, this wheel determines the challenges and experiences that that intricately construct our lives and the balance of the world we share. Delicately entwining the experiences and choices people individually and collectively encounter. The perpetual motion and relativity of life is so intricate and yet so unquestionably purposeful. This we can see in everything around us…if we have our eyes, ears and hearts open.
Through most of my life, I have loved my humanity, appreciating evry tear, every laugh and every single experience. At times, I have taken my life for granted, sometimes growing so tired and confused. When I have felt uncertain and erratic, I thought about what it would be like to disappear or hide, to not have get up tomorrow – life can be so hard at times for so long.
Recently I have learnt a lesson of life in such a sad and devatstating manner. Life is not about valuing individual tragedies and miracles, it is about the big picture. Each person is exposed to millions of experiences in life, there is no doubt. The truth at the end is in the person next to you, it is about caring, laughing and taking the time to share the best of you with those who you cross paths with. There is no need to hide, no reason to worry and nothing each and every one of us can’t get through if we use our experiences, continually learning. Sharing our lives, times and fears to help others. Perhaps one person could save another time and energy with lessons already learnt , if we bother to care more. Take a moment to bother to see that we are in a similar boat. No one is alone in their experiences and that should be known and felt by all.
It took the death of a beautiful and young friend that was taken suddenly, for me to see how much more I can do, how much more I can share, Not one day of her twenty six years was she not busy, learning, curious, laughing and just so so eager for life.
She lived every day with the loud laugh and shy yet playful heart of a child, and she succeeded in her life as an adult, achieving all her hearts desires. Her life has come to an end and her life should be celebrated, praised and learnt from. For her death at twenty six must make us look at what extra we can do to live positively and share support and laughter fearlessly with more than just the people we select to spend out time with.
There are no excuses for living a safe life where people ’s biggest challenge is personal only. We should appreciate the concept of community and communication and caring. DO something extra in your life that you can share with others….before it is too late. Work and Live better than you have, look around at the now and change it in every positive way you can.
The more lives we choose to touch, the more smiles, the more love we share – the more active we are in life. Your gifts and your abilities are all beautifully and blessingly bestowed to you in life.
Share the special person you are with people around you, as the end is inevitable and life is a fleeting celebration that we should all embrace so much more.
Dedicated to a beautiful wild child who loved all life threw at her….
May she be in a happy place, a place full of music and love.
I miss you so so much, the world has learnt a lot from you but if only you were still here to share your magic.
You touched every person that ever had the experience of crossing your path and your legacy of freedom, honesty and beauty shall be carried on by all of us that have been coping with the loss of our dear friend Elsa.
May you rest in Peace,
I love you.
