I think about my mom every single day since she passed; sometimes it is with a smile because her spirit is still with me, strongly holding me when I need it, and sometimes it is with a tear, suddenly remembering she is gone. But mom had a strong spirit when she was alive, so she is still here to comfort me and others who still need her.
Spirit is everywhere
It flows through and around everyone you meet. From the casual conversation you have with someone on the street to the time spent with family reminiscing on past times that were good and bad.
When you reminisce. be uplifted by the good, bad and ugly times of life because they are just there in the past, and memories change a bit as you get older.
And that is a good thing because just like a tree, we stand alone at the end of life. Our strength becomes our spirit, not how physically strong, or mentally strong we were, just our spirit is left to be near others who are living.
Strengthen your spirit now
Begin to find strength in yourself through nature. Take those walks that you talk about taking, and spend time with the birds, the breezes and the wonders of the world.
My spirit sours when I read inspiring literature. Find some smiles in reading some things that inspire and motivate you toward becoming more centered and balanced in your life.
As time passes, you begin to get closer to spiritual things. Remembering the way things were becomes a gift to talk about. The happy thoughts prevail over the sad. Things become clearer, and you begin to see each present moment as a gift in time, because each day become more special than the day before. Each moment deserves gratitude, as your harmoniously pass along.
