Something that became really important to me at the end of last year, was creating spaces in my room where I could reflect and honour the friendship I shared with Jani. I wanted to be reminded everyday of the dreams we talked about and planned on putting into action together. It’s been difficult seeing them unfold without her. Occasionally I’ll catch myself thinking, “I really need to tell Jani this.” And then I have to stop and take a few deep breaths and remember that’s not possible.
Although this reality is hard and heartbreaking – these spaces remind me that I can still cherish Jani. I can still carry our memory in my heart, as I head into the future.
Food for thought on soulful saturday – how do you honour parts of your past?
