Celebrate life…

Stefan Wissenbach

The father of a dear friend of mine, Jade, recently passed away. As you can imagine, both Jade and his family are grieving. Understandably, when someone close passes away, there’s tremendous sadness. Sometimes, in our moment of grief, we may even find ourselves losing some perspective.  I said to Jade: “Mourn but celebrate his life, his achievements, his qualities and his character.  Often when someone passes away, people miss the opportunity to deeply reflect on all the good, reflection which…

Striking up a conversation, Mike asked me how my flight had been, as the weather in Chicago was terrible and there had been delays at the airport. I explained that I’d treated myself to a nice seat and whilst it had been a little bumpy coming in,…
