Earlier this week, I woke up one morning feeling so motivated and positive that it’ll be a good day ahead of me. I’ve decided to go back to my old routine, focus on my goals and move forward. Me and my family are still grieving yet we can’t stay like this forever.

I asked my Mom and my sister if they already wanted to go back to work again. I told them that it’ll help us to accept the reality and we all need to move on. Moving on doesn’t mean forgetting the person, I reminded them. I know that my Dad will understand what I mean and my purpose and going back to our usual activities are just the start. I don’t want us to get stuck in this kind of situation and mindset because it’ll never bring us any good.

Acceptance and moving on are the keys for us to stop focusing on what we’ve lost but appreciate what we have. Losing my Dad is a reminder for me that we’re all going to experience endings. Our existence isn’t forever so valuing each day that we wake up is important and a blessing. Each of us has roles in this world and I guess, my Dad’s part is finally done.
Whenever I think about my Dad and how happy he can be wherever he is right now makes it easier for me to accept the fact that he’s just part of our memories. It’s hard to think and face the truth that he’ll no longer be part of our future, yet, moving on is what we need.
