The Art of Letting Go

How to buy a niche on a cremation wall in USA?

When a loved one dies, this could be one of the most painful experiences for any family member especially if you are particularly close with the person who died. It is always important for a family member to place the deceased in a place where they are safe, free and peaceful.

There are many ways that you can bury your family member, those will usually include the traditional burial service which is the casket burial, and the other one is through cremation. Regardless of the memorial service you choose, it should be something that the deceased will appreciate.

If you do end up deciding to cremate your loved one, there are designated areas for them to be placed in like a cremation wall USA. These walls are dedicated solely for those who are cremated. They will normally place the cremated person inside a niche, which is then sealed and labeled with the deceased person’s name.

If you want to cremate your loved one and place them inside a cremation wall but you do not know how to buy one, here are some ways that you can purchase a part in a cremation wall:

  • Inquire at a church or a cemetery – before you can buy a part on a cremation wall, there is a process that you have to follow before you can place your loved one inside a niche. You can usually ask a church or your local cemetery to ask how much it is to put your loved one inside a niche in a cremation wall. This will not cost too much, but it will depend on where you want to place it. The price will also depend on how many people you are going to place inside the niche. Churches and cemeteries are not very strict anymore, unlike back in the day where they will only allow one person per niche. With this method you not only get to save money, but you can also visit both those people at the same time without going through the hassle of looking for them individually.


  • Ask how much it is – as mentioned, the price for these niches, will usually depend on how the placement. If you want to place it on the high part of the cremation wall that will be a different price, probably more expensive, or if you are willing to place the person at the very bottom or at least in the middle, that will also be priced differently. Before you buy anything, make sure that you get all the needed details first before investing, because this can be very stressful if you end up getting the wrong one and have ended up paying already. Be sure of everything before paying so that you do not have to go through all the trouble.


  • Ask around – you can ask your relatives where the best place is to get a part on the cremation wall. Usually there are churches that have a specified area for all those who are cremated. You can ask the church how much it is, and if the price is ok, then by all means you can purchase this already.

Understanding Life After 25 Years

After being in this earth for 25 years I can now testify that the term ‘quarter life crisis’ is indeed real. I am at this point in my life wherein I start to plan and look forward to buying a home, purchasing an insurance policy, planning my family, questioning my career path and overall asking myself if I am in the right track. Quarter life crisis is a time when you realise that you are now an adult and whatever you decide to do now will be a platform of where you will be heading. But what if like me, you want to do so many things that you do not even know where to begin with? Well, after a year of asking myself and reading inspirational articles, I’ve become at peace with myself and my crisis.

I’ve narrowed a simple solution to avoid or conquer quarter life crisis down to these two rules:

Rule no. 1 – Stop comparing yourself to others.

Pretty simple right? It’s such a basic rule but is often neglected. Actually, it is the root of all your life questions, e.g. you see your friend buy a car and you ask yourself how he’s able to pay for it. Going to the office every single day, I saw my co-workers starting to acquire new gadgets and upgrade their lifestyle, but as for me I chose to still live just based on my necessities. It did make me happy when I upgraded my phone, but the happiness only lasted for a month and faded after realizing that I would be paying for it the next two years. Remind yourself everyday that each of us has a different story to tell, you are the star of your own novel and you are your very own author. Live a life you want, and do not base it on another person’s story.

Rule no. 2 – Write everything down.

With all the hustle and bustle you go through every day, there are a million thoughts that run through your head. You create your bucket list, your house decorating ideas, big decisions such purchasing car insurance or protection policies, and even the tiny details such as what to wear the next day. Instead of constantly forgetting an idea, keep it recorded. Keeping a journal relieves your mind and body from all those running thoughts. Write everything down, and by the end of the week read every single entry you have written as you will be surprised with how easy some of them are and that you can actually accomplish them if you put your mind on it. When you think about it, some issues may sound so big, but when you actually start to write and formulate solutions, life becomes easier.

Enjoy these fruitful years and do not pressure yourself with the thought of catching up with how rich and stable your friends are. Your bank statement is not the key to achieve happiness. Happiness is achieved by being at peace with yourself; remember that you are the author of your life, and only you have the power to achieve the dreams and goals you set for yourself.
