When I was a kid, I used to be afraid of dying.
I actually thought about the concept quite a bit.
Does it all just end?
Is it like fading to sleep?
Do we go to heaven?
Is this it?
Mostly what I envisioned was darkness… like the world when you close your eyes.It terrified me.I didn’t want to die.Then I started growing up… and like many of you, the concept of death became taboo. Thoughts of death were pushed to the back of my mind. People died in movies… I heard of tragic deaths in the news… death was happening all around me… yet somehow it remained this foreign concept in the back of my mind. I think we all remain disconnected from the reality of death until we come face-to-face with death itself.
In my book, Glitter and Grief: A Journey to Finding the Glitter in Life After Grief, I invite you to take a look into my personal journal. I want to share with you my journey since my dad unexpectedly passed away. It is the very first day the journal starts.Maybe you’ll be able to relate. Maybe you’ll think I’m crazy. Maybe you’ve never experienced grief before. Maybe you are going through it now. Whatever your reasoning is for reading this book, I want to thank you. Thank you for being a part of my journey and thank you for allowing me to be a part of yours.
