Life After Loss || How I Understand Death At This Moment

Death is never an easy topic to discuss. Since my late husband had passed away, my major battle of going through this grieving process is trying to find out how death, or losing him can eventually make sense to me. In other words, I need to make peace with his death and totally accept it.

In the past two month, I had done a lot of soul searching by reading all kinds of articles, listening to speeches or watch short videos about human souls. To be honest with you, I had never given much thoughts to death and soul before my man died. But at this moment for me, after all the learning and thinking, death is not that mystery, or scary anymore. I view it would rather in a peaceful manner.

I believe soul is a form of pure energy, it will not die, neither disappears. It just transfers between in different forms. This human body we got is the vehicle of our soul for this life time. For this life time, it begins with birth and ends with death, but in a bigger picture, it is just like a perennial, comes back over and over. When I think about this way, it makes me feel better knowing my man was just left for a break and he will be back to continue his journey. But the sad part is, when he is back, it will be a different form, I am not sure if I can recognize him, or we will ever get a chance to encounter again. But overall, I am very grateful that I had shared this great true love with him and learned so much from him too. He was the most influential person in my life at this point. His physical body is gone, but his soul, partly living in mine. I used to call that thing he had as “Stupid Faith”. He always said “everything will work out.” I was like, “Did you see the situation? Are you being realistic?” But now, I inherited his Stupid Faith.

Then there was another question I need answer too. I had been through so much in my whole life to finally meet my soul-mate. We had 10 years of beautiful marriage and I finally know what the good life is. Then I lost him. What was this about? A punishment? An incident? A teaser? How can I not feel the anger and instead, find peace through this?? After months debate and searching, I think I found my answer. I met him and lost him, was a lesson. A lesson to let me experience what the unconditional love is, so I can continue to give it to myself and others. A lesson to open the door for me to empower myself, and others through my journey. A lesson to figure out my life purpose and push me stepping out of my comfort zone, taking risk and chasing my wild dreams.

Am I happy with this course design? Absolutely not! I would rather to learn those lessons through other life events. But I guess I don’t have the power to decide. The only power I have, is to decide how I THINK, or how I see it. I know I am not done with my grieving journey yet, but I can feel I have figured out some most important answers at this moment. I start to feel my heart is not that heavy anymore.

Meeting With America’s Punk Fashion Queen Betsey Johnson

About 10 days ago I received an email asking if I would like to meet with Betsey Johnson before her public appearance at our local Macy’s. I instantly jumped up and down. Heck YES! She has been my inspiration for years!!! If you don’t know much about Betsey Johnson, here is some very basic info about her from Wikipedia: “Betsey Johnson is an American fashion designer best known for her feminine and whimsical designs. Many of her designs are considered “over the top” and embellished. She also is known for doing a cartwheel ending in a split at the end of her fashion shows.”

I can’t remember the exact moment I first encountered her designs, but I do remember every time I saw her products in a store (it seems like you can find her lines just about everywhere), they always brought a big smile on my face. They’re made for girls who refuse to grow up. After I read more about her, I became a big fan of hers. Betsey Johnson has never been one to blend in. She is a walking expression of youthful joy, an inspirational icon, long time breast cancer survivor and has several lifetimes’ worth of accomplishments. At age 72, she won the CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award, and did the splits on stage again. That was 3 years ago! She is totally a cool kid!

You can watch this FB live to see her line and some of her products that I found at my local Macy’s last weekend.

I bought this dress from her newest collection at Macy’s that night too. It is so comfy and feminine with an old Hollywood vibe.

You can also watch this FB live to see her public appearance at our local Macy’s. It is quite long, but I promise you will see her at the end.;) She is totally a people person and loves hugs! It was very cool that she remembers some of her long-time fans and loves spending time with them.

Watch this live video which I final met Betsey Johnson! You have to come back to read my post and find out why we laughed so hard!!! She is so nice and funny! @macys@betseyjohnson#BetseyBabe#BetseyJohnson#betseyheartsmacys

In the photo below you only can see a very small portion of the crowd that day. The line was so long so it wrapped around the whole store a few times. People just love her! From very young girls to grandmas, her 50 years as a fashion icon has earned so much love through her free-spirt and up-beat fashion!

By the way, are you curious about what she said that made me laugh that hard? Lol, you will not believe it. When I asked her how she can keep her young and fun spirit forever, she thought about it for a few seconds and she said “Because I have a 48 year old hot boy friend!”

She is seriously the coolest, warmest, funniest and cutest 75 year old women I have ever seen! Now I know everything is possible, as long as we don’t let our inner child ever die. She is the perfect example for many women who are struggling with their identity. Just be you, fully be you. This method is already approved by America’s Punk Fashion Queen Betsey Johnson: it is good enough, just be you!

I was quite surprised to find out that Steve Madden is one of her best friends. I interviewed him last year too! You can read about him here. I was also very blessed to have the chance working with Stacy London as well. You can read about that experience here and here.
