I lost my mum in November to secondary breast cancer. I still feel as though she’s in hospital so not sure if grief has really struck me or if I mourned her whilst she was slipping away. That said, I made a promise to mum that I would live for us both and that’s exactly what I’ve been trying to do. Documenting my journey in positive videos that I share on social media amongst friends and family. It’s really helped me stay positive and remember her as she really was not how she became.
I recently went back packing around Cambodia, she always wanted to travel. At the time of booking she gave me a sign that I simply couldn’t ignore. Comforting me and reassuring me that it was the right thing to do.
The videos allow me to keep her spirit alive and more importantly they’ll remain as eternal memories that we’ve shared together. Perhaps not in person or tangibly but I know I had my angel by my side, she gave me signs to make my sceptical mind believe that. It has really helped me. Maybe something worth trying, they’re really easy to do, I taught myself on my iMovies app
