A Celebration of Life

This may be off my usual topic...  but i feel i just have to share my what i felt when i attended a 'celebration of life' get together.  Well, this is the new term for funeral service or a wake.

I usually do not attend this kind of gathering or even goes to a hospital to visit sick loved ones.  I do not know the reason why but i just do not want to do that, unless really necessary.  I just realized the reason when i attended my cousin's celebration of life.  It has to do with 'mortality', not only mine but to all the people around me.

In just a second, something might happen to anybody - whether a sickness, an accident or just about anything else.  A life will be ended just like that, without any warning.   And i just do not want to face this reality of life then. But now i know and i accept that this will happen to everybody, including me or to the people i love.

So what can i do now?  I will just make it a point to express my love to those people.  I will not keep any ill feelings about anybody.  I will make the most out of my day.  Spend more quality time with my family.  These things will seem impossible to do all the time, but i will try my best.

Maybe, it is also time for you to feel what i am feeling - for you to value people around you.

Always be happy,
