Obviously, being a parent is very challenging. At one point or another you become a teacher, a motivational speaker, a financier, a maid, a chauffer, a spiritual advisor, a disciplinarian, a role model, sometimes, if you are lucky enough, you might even be able to be your child’s friend. So, if your child was to die suddenly, the million dollar question is, why is it automatically the parent’s fault? What if the parent was not there at the time of death? What if the child was a parent themselves? After all the investments a parent puts into a child, why would people think it’s acceptable to criticize or give their two cents of negativity during what is the parents worst time on Earth, one of the worst experiences humanity has to offer? If you don’t have anything to help with, inspire, be a necessity, or kind, don’t speak a word. The parent who lost the child will NEVER forget your words even if you forgot what you said. When the tragedy is all over and the parent is stronger than ever, an even better person, you might be left out of their new life. Think, what if it was your child? You know the sacrifices you made for your child, that doesn’t change if they died. So why say something uncharacteristic during a life changing event? Just don’t speak.
A journey no one else will travel and no one else can judge – a path of happiness and hurt, where the challenges are great and the rewards even greater.
You’re on a journey where each experience will teach you something valuable and you can’t get lost, for you already know the way by heart.
You’re on a journey that is universal yet uniquely personal, and profound yet astonishingly simple – where sometimes you will stumble and other times you will soar. You’ll learn that even at your darkest point, you can find a light – if you look for it. At the most difficult crossroads, you’ll have an answer – if you listen for it. Friends and family will accompany you part of the way, and you’ll walk the rest of the way by yourself… but you will never be alone.
Travel at your own pace. There’ll be time enough to learn all you need to know and as far as your meant to go. Travel light. Letting go of extra baggage will keep your arms open and your heart free to fully embrace the gifts of the moment.
You may not always know exactly where you’re headed, but if you follow the desires of your heart, the integrity of your conscience, and the wisdom of your soul… then each step you take will lead you to discover more of who you really are, and it will be a step in the right direction on the journey of a lifetime.
