​Life Update | Loosing Someone Close To You

I know I have been very quiet lately and as usual life just gets in the way of of running a blog.

My mom’s friend past away recently and this past Saturday we attended her funeral, its always heart breaking loosing someone in your life that you know.. I for one knew my mom’s friend since I was a little girl. It just got me a bit emotional mostly me wishing I wasn’t as busy to visit them if only I made more time. I guess the what if’s won’t help the past at all but it has made me thought of how short life is and how I want to be spending my time.


This lose also got me thinking of my gran, she hasn’t been with us for about 3 years ago,  there’s not a day that goes pass that I don’t think about her. I’ve talked about her so many times but its how I cope with my feelings, writing down my thoughts…


I don’t see my mother much and all of this just makes me want to be a better daughter, a daughter who is not too busy for her only parent and oh my my little nephew, I got to babysit him for the day and wow he has gotten so big.. I’ve missed out on so much time with him and when he says “I love you Candice” it tears me apart!! Oh no that got me crying right now.


Life can get in the way of so much but its important to make time for family that’s the biggest lesson I’ve learnt this weekend. I am also so thankful that I have the support of an amazing boyfriend he has truly been my guardian angel no matter how down I feel he always makes me feel better.

      I have realized that – it makes me want to make more time for them – some family however are users and I won’t be hashing up things with them

    when my mom passed away, i was feeling devasteted and its vary sad, but had to accept it, as I cannot change past, it is so sad, and life is never the same, my mom come to me in dreams though i belive that then we indeed meet on soul level and talk. I at the same year met a person that is my boyfriend and if he would not be in my life i dont know how i would coupe with live, so i think he is my angel too send from God-so he is my joy and also feel great around him, but we were online all time and still are online – we never met in person but we will next year, I will go to him and move out from my country to his – hope we will be happy together 🙂

    My condolences to you, Candice. I’ve just lost someone close to me last weekend, too, and I’ve been having a hard time, too. Let the grieving period come, and look for ways to cope. My way to cope is by writing (hence my latest post), but if you need to take time out, do so.

    It makes one realize how important life is, too, when one goes through the loss. Take care, Candice, and all the best. Lots of love. <3

    You know I am here love, we do talk every day.
    If all you can do is just text someone because you can’t be there in person, it does help as it is a great way to connect with them still 🙂

    I hope that makes sense, I a working on 6 hours of sleep in two days over here.

    Sorry for your loss, my grandma passed away few months ago and I regret not calling her when I had the chance. We lived far away from each other. Made me realized to value people around me more. 🙂
