When we lose someone special in our life, whether it is a beloved pet who passes on or a family member or close friend, it is such a devastating and painful experience, one that takes such a long time to heal from, one from which it may not be possible to fully heal.
Those feelings of loss can remain with us for years, decades. And often, when we think about them, it’s that painful feeling of emptiness, of never being able to see them, hold them or touch them again.
Today I invite you to think of someone special who has passed on.
Only today I want you to focus on how full your life was when they were part of it, how much gratitude you could express to them that you maybe never did.
Don’t remember your life with them from the point of view that they’re now gone, feeling sad, lonely, empty.
Rather remember it as if you are re-living the joy of being with them in the present moment.
Re-live with pure joy times you were together and express gratitude for being able to cherish those memories again and for their presence in your life.
