“When we are content and secure in ourselves, it leaves with having no desire to set ourselves up as superior to anyone else. When we simply celebrate our own individuality we allow others to do the same.” - Angie Karan Krezos
“The role of Cherishing in Bereavement - I think that the key to healthy grieving is to cherish those who have passed on, so that you celebrate their lives and the times you did have together with thankfulness, instead of trying to cling on and wish that things were different. I believe that you should let them go in peace with love, not try to hang on to their spirits, just hold the precious moments gently in your heart.” - Jay Woodman
