Aside of my various writing projects wherein I often talk about keeping loved ones alive in our hearts when talking about bereavement I believe it is vital to celebrate the life of those we lose.
Whilst feeling sad at the passing of a loved one it really does help the grieving process to remember the funny times and their personal achievements rather than focus on the way they died. As I have shared personally many times my mother’s life wasn’t cancer and I have always preferred to recall the many gifts she gave us her love, her time and her wisdom.
Many people also find comfort in preparing a memory board of photographs to look at, reflect and hold onto positive memories.
Where ever you are in your own bereavement journey remember your loved one would want you to go on living your life to the full.
