Learning to Grieve

When going through life, you will most likely experience some sad events that happen unexpectedly. This can be a very troubling time in one’s life, and death is often a surprise to us all. Death is a very scary word to most people, but we all face it at some point or another. The definition of grief can mean several things to us. Grief can mean deep regret of something that occurred in one’s own life, or it can mean feeling sorrow over the loss of someone that was important to you or impacted you in some way or another. Of course we do not know why these things occur to people that we are close to, but it is a way of life and we learn to accept it over time.


The grieving process takes different amounts of time for certain people. It can take a few weeks, a few months, or even many years to overcome the loss of someone dear. It is really important to be there for people during the grieving process, to ensure them that they are not alone when suffering with pain. Knowing that you have family and friends around you during this difficult and tough time can really help someone overcome the loss much faster. Showing you care and making an effort will really help that person get back on their feet again.


Whitney Howard Designs provides grieving gifts for their clients. This could be useful for your friends or family going through this loss, or even for yourself if you are experiencing this loss personally. These jewelry pieces are meant to inspire people and lift them up when they are feeling very down. Wearing something that has an inspirational quote or inspirational meaning that will remind you to keep on going every day can really benefit someone. If you know someone going through a hard time, you could also show your appreciation with Whitney Howard’s memorial gifts. These type of gifts are very special, in which they honor someone who passed away. You can create their name on the piece of jewelry to symbolize that they are always together.

Buddha’s Inspiration

Blessings Rings

The Buddha was a sacred and idolized figure in earlier years. Gautama Buddha was looked upon as guidance and as a belief system for many people who were looking for a God like figure. The word Buddha is originated from the meaning of the word, which is “one who is awake”. He spread the teachings of belief of his system called “Buddhism” which was taught first to many people across India. His practices were widely known as he taught human beings how to end rebirth and their pain/sufferings.


Over the many years of his existence, he spread his teachings to various people such as merchants, servants, murderers, and nobles. In Buddhism, many people heal their spirits and their souls by using forms of meditation, similar to yoga. This meditation is used to simply promote karma and rebirth. By finding your own consciousness in yourself through meditation, it is said by Buddhists that they are able to reduce their sufferings.


Buddha rings have become increasingly popular since the spread of this religion came into play. Many people think of Gautama Buddha as their God, and wear jewelry with his quotes, his pictures, and his words for inspiration on a daily basis. They help people wake up every morning and do good for the world. Karma is a huge belief system for Buddhists, and it encourages them to obtain good deeds in the world. Kindness is always a part of this system, and that is where karma conjoins.
Whitney Howard Designs carries special Buddha jewelry to inspire others to spread good value towards others. Many people who do yoga as a form of meditation and relaxation started doing this because of the inspiration from Buddha himself, and found that it heals their souls. Buddha is a reminder to all that you can eliminate your sufferings and pain by working on yourself

Gifting Family Reunion Party Favors

Family to many people is the most important thing in the world. A family can be many people, a few people, or even one person. Family members do not necessarily need to be related to you by blood, it can even be a close friend. The word family leaves a sense of security to many people. They provide love, support, and are there for each other in times of need. If there is one person you can trust completely with anything, than they are like your family.

We learn new things about the world everyday, and often times it is because of our family members. Because of each persons own individual experiences, they are able to share moments, thoughts, and educate us on things we are not aware of. This is how we grow and learn- from each person in our family. At the end of the day, all you really need is your family to strive through life. A family picks you up when you are falling down, and will stick with you through the good and the bad times that may occur.

Giving A Special Gift To Family

Family Reunions

The word “Family” is one of the strongest, most meaningful words for many people in this world. While every person can have a different perspective of the word family, it has a general concept. Family in a basic concept means that there is someone who loves and cares for you, and will do anything that will positively impact your life. Family can be just one person, and multiple people as well. If you have someone you can trust with your life, and that you can always count on when you need advice, than you have a family.

Why Family Is Important

The most important thing to remember is that you do not have to be of the same blood to be called family. Anyone who shows you proper appreciation can have this label for you. While some people have a number of people in theirs, others might not have ever had this experience in their lives. This is why it is so cherishable and valuable. Sometimes, you do not get to see the people you love for long periods of time, which is why reunions are so important to have at least annually. Whitney Howard Designs carries special family reunion gifts that can be shared with any member.
