What Does the Death of Anything Mean?

Death is a word that none of us want to hear, read nor say. Yet this is a reality of life since everything in life dies. I am not just referring when it comes to human beings, I’m referring to absolutely everything from seasons to even the job that you have. “Omg Aura, you are taking this overboard” you may be thinking. As a matter of fact, I’m just stating the facts of life and you will see how this relates to your well-being and how you can use this for your growth.

Death just means when something ends or ceases. Certain deaths causes sadness like when a loved one dies or even the end of a marriage. Believe it or not, even while you are on this earth you will have certain parts of you that will cease as well. This is just a natural and necessary cycle of life.

Why is this a natural and necessary cycle of life? Because without the cessation of things, there is no growth. Things need to change and end for there to be an evolution. A great example I can think of is when you become an adult. You have to put away/end your childish ways. You can’t be an adult with childish ways, that can’t happen because they both don’t go together. When you feel ready to go into another phase of your life, there is a part of you that is dying in order to make way for the new you to come out. So in essence, there are always things that are dying because they make room for other things to come into our life. When it comes to those that we love, when they pass that is a different kind of death and that is not the death that I am referring to in this post although that is what most people think of when they see or hear the word.

The death of anything in your life, (with the exception of loved ones because that is not what I am referring to in this post), doesn’t have to be the end of everything. It just means a new chapter of your book, a new phase in your life, a new you and growth. It’s all in how you want to view it and how you feel about it. Allow for the end of anything in your life to mature you and make you into a better person. Allow the end of something to be the beginning of great things. It is a must to remember that death is a natural process of life and a must in order to expand in well-being.

It’s Little By Little, Day By Day

What inspires me to write this is the fact that my family and I are grieving the passing of my father who passed away this past Friday, May 20th. We know it will take time to accept this fact, to find the conformity in how things happened and to accept that he is no longer with us physically. All that anyone can do in circumstances like this is to remind oneself that it’s little by little, day by day.

It’s little by little, day by day that you will start to accept the fact that whatever that is going on in your life is actually going on in your life. This is because it takes time to process things. It takes time to heal wounds. It takes time to understand things. It takes time to process one’s emotions.

It’s little by little, day by day that you will put the pieces together. When one grieves, of course physically you reflect what you feel and it takes a little at a time and day by day to get back to your old self again. It takes time to be able to find things with the same beauty as you once did. It takes time to understand that it is ok to feel what you feel at the moment that you feel it.

It’s little by little, day by day that you start to realize that the ending of something is just the beginning of something new. The end is never the end and even when a chapter ends, life must go on and so you must go on.

It’s little by little, day by day because nothing is done all at once. You don’t just grow from night to day, you don’t just heal one moment to the next, you don’t get over a grief so quick. It’s ok to grieve because in the grieving you are processing what is going on, you are letting out all that you feel, you are little by little putting your own pieces together in a way that only you can do for yourself.

There are different kinds of grieving and although I’m grieving my dad’s passing, one can grieve their marriage or anything that was so meaningful to them. Grief is grief and no matter what the grief is, it takes little by little, day by day.
