How to deal with the death of a loved one

If I'm gonna be honest I must confess that the past few months has left me riddled with fear. Sure, I chase my dream but with self belief? That would be a NO. Do you know what I mean, my friend? You want something so much but are too riddled with fear to make a move.

Well, finally something has shifted within me and that thing is death.

They say death comes in three's. Well then, I have two down, one more to go. This past month my Uncle Mike (66 years old) and a dear friend named Tiffany (30 years old)has passed away.

Losing them has rattled my drive alive. The time has come to set the fear aside because my friends, there isn't time. You want your dream? Now's the time for action.

Do the thing you fear the most-do it for those you love who have passed away.

PS- I cannot believe I'm about to post a video featuring Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. Even so, the Les Miserables 25th anniversary concert DVD has been blaring constantly at my home. This songs sums up my feelings for this post. Maybe it will help you along your own journey. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYToP5ZfydE

So sorry to hear about your losses. Death does make us think twice about our lives and our personal destiny. It makes us question. But it also makes us look around and thank the stars for what we have....friends, family, love. If you know in your heart that you want more, do it. Be brave, summon the courage. You are not alone.

I'm sorry to hear about the passing of your loved ones. Grief is hard, but I pray you will find comfort. You make a very good point about going after things we want, even if we're afraid. I'm taking this post as a sign to do just that. Thanks.

I hope death doesn't come in threes Russo. I thought it was "bad luck" comes in three. Anyhow, I will just keep on believing my way, since I don't think I can handle three deaths close together. My condolences with your losses.
