Alex Trebek with his family at his birthday celebration: (2109) His son Matthew, daughter Emily, Alex, his wife Jean and daughter Nicky

Jean share’s a message of love inspired by the passing of Alex.

One Year Ago

With the one year anniversary of my beloved husband‘s transition into Eternal Life, I am reminded of his beautiful heart and keen intelligence.

There is so much that I’ve had to move thru this year, on my own… like a child learning to ride a bike without training wheels, so to speak. A shift in consciousness has awakened within myself that is huge and this transformation has brought forth aspects of myself that have been on the back burner for sometime.

I will share more of my personal journey as it percolates from me… but for now, what I feel is most important to share is that of Alex’s final message to the world.

The Message is Compassion

It’s interesting to me that as someone faces their own mortality, a pertinent question that arises is, what are their values now?

I can honestly say that at the end of Alex’s life, kindness and compassion for another and oneself was paramount.  Perfection of living significantly pales in comparison to the power of, “Loving thy neighbor as thy self.”

Simple?…I’m not so sure because this phrase is actually asking us to love and have compassion with ourselves first. We’ve all heard it, we can’t give what we don’t have.

So let’s give ourselves the permission to be softer and kinder to ourselves first…to realize that we’re doing the best we can and then watch that compassionate love extend out to our neighbors and beyond.

Gratitude to “my best guy”, Alex…

you are forever in my heart.

Here is a video that Alex did for The Compassion Project, it was one of his last messages.  I feel it’s worth repeating, as are most truthful declarations.
