By your loss, you have been transported into a world gone awry and nothing seems to make sense anymore. Consequently, you might question the meaning of life and death. In truth, this has been a question most have pondered – and not just after a loved one has passed.

Virginia Woolf queried the following:

“What is the meaning of life?… A simple question; one that tended to close in on one with years. The great revelation had never come. The great revelation perhaps never did come. Instead there were little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectedly in the dark.”

Perhaps there isn’t just ONE meaning, and you must simply live life each day to its fullest extent and appreciate the sweet moments you encounter along the way.

Your life is actually a string of events, which is colored with duality that makes some happy/some sad; some big/some small, etc. Upon reflection backwards, you can see that meaning comes in the totality of these events that you shared with the ones you loved that allows you to say “I made a difference in their lives and in the world.”

As long as you’re alive, you have the infinite potential to create meaning for your life. It is in the search for that meaning that you can learn your greatest lessons and reap the sweetest fruit.
