Why do we need to celebrate life? And what that does really mean? It is one of those phrases I hear a lot in self-development classes and often read on blogs. And the capital letters make it sometimes hard for me to feel the real meaning.
But when a dear friend of mine held his little daughter up high in the air during the celebration of her life to welcome her among us- the family and friends, I was close to what it meant. There was that joy of seeing that adorable human being, but it was also that we took that weekend to be together, that we stopped to feel the things bigger than us, than our life.
I had a lot of goodbyes last summer... They are also a part of life I do not want to forget, but it was good to experience that moment of joyful welcoming. To be reminded that the way I want to live my life is to celebrate the important moment and share them with the people I love. Hope you will always remind me of that little Ma-jita!
