Who will come to your funeral?

What-Will-People-SayIt has been a thoughtful week for me. A different kind of thoughtful.

I have been to four funerals. Not a typical week thank goodness.

When I looked around in those churches I am mindful of what is said about the people who are being celebrated.

What they did in their lives, who they were, and who really loved them.

Our lives are mixed with stuff that has little consequence.

We give too much energy away to those who want to take.

We pay too much attention to those who want to throw stones and take away our energy.

Those who all to often talk and judge and add no value to the community they criticize.

Those whose soul is sad.

Going to funerals is not what we look forward to, but it is a reminder of the character we leave behind, the father the mother the son the daughter. The soldier the sailor the airman the firefighter.  All are heroes to someone.

So when we move on to the next life, what life and memories do we leave behind?

And did we make a real positive difference to others who we met along the way.

What will people say about you?

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
