We should expect lives

We should be positive to lives no matter what suffered

My aunt has suffered the cancer from ten years ago, She has treated very actively previously, and almost cured. However, fate made a big joke on her. As our whole family thought she has overcome the disease, suddenly the cancer spread to the brain. From that on, her body became very weak, and her consciousness was not clear at times. As cancer spread very quickly in the brain, she left us two months later.

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

Aunt's sudden left has made us very sad, especially for me. Because my aunt and I has very good relationship, and I love her so much. So at the beginning I can not accept this fact. However, my mother told me, we can not always stay in this sorrow, because life goes on and we have to look forward. This is the fact that no one can change, so we should live positively.
