Your life, after death

In my novel, “Unsevered,” the concept of life after death is explored through the experiences of the main female character, Jewel. She was married to Harley, a soldier in the Air Force. They had just returned from their honeymoon when he was called to duty in the Middle East, and killed in action less than one week later.

Jewel is left behind to pick up the pieces. Harley had become her everything. She struggles to deal with his death, withdrawing from everyone and everything around her, even contemplating suicide … until Harley visits her with a message from the beyond.  Jewel learns that life does go on, even if we choose not to live it.

Even though this story is fictional, many elements found within can easily be compared to real-life experiences. Thousands of military spouses experience some of the same emotions, on a daily basis, that Jewel does in this book. Many of them bury their spouses far too soon.

Some people say they don’t live their lives for others; but in reality, we all do. If you are a wife, a mother, a sister, a brother, a father, a son, a niece, a nephew, etc.; then, you do live your life for others. You are not the one who will remember all your life experiences with these people once you die. They are the ones left behind with the memories they shared with you. When you leave this earth, you don’t take your memories with you.

So think about how you treat those people in your life , while you are still alive! Make time for them, listen to their problems, offer to help where you can; but most of all, be kind. Because, you will be remembered by them, whether in a good way or bad!

    You’re absolutely right, Traci. Most of us, at some level, live for others. You capture emotions so well in Unsevered. It’s a book that will stay with you long after you’ve read it. It will also make you wonder (if you don’t believe already) if there is an afterlife; if there is some way a loved one can reach out to us once they’ve crossed over.

      If that’s what you gathered from my story, then I can proudly say I accomplished the goal I had set out to reach in writing it. Thank you so much for sharing that sentiment with us, Beth. I truly appreciate your support and friendship!
