This is more of a personal and opinionated question than a factual one. None of the people on this site can tell you what happens after death, as none of us have died or at least have conscious memories of life after death (as some people believe in reincarnation). It's more an answer of what your opinion is, what your faith is, and what you believe in.
There is no way to tell what happens after death. Many people see many things. There are recounts of people who went through near-death experiences, recalling paradise, something like it, or even nothing at all. There is research to support there is still brain activity during these stages, though. The truth is that there is most likely a long rest. An end to suffering, and an end to trials of living. This does not mean you should lose faith in life. You only have one chance to live glorious life. It truly is a beautiful gift, if you make it to be. Travel, run through fine forests and beaches, educate yourself; from the depths of the oceans to the fairest reaches of the unknown galaxies. There is so much anonymity in this life, so much to explore and discover. Above all, discover yourself, for you are the only one you'll have from the first day of life, until the very last. Til' death do we part with ourselves, more so than our spouses do we live with ourselves. And most importantly, you should discover yourself because life is a gift and each day is a new opportunity to be yourself, to escape normality and do whatever you choose. You're amazing, damnit, and don't you forget it.
No one surely knows what happens after death. There are many assumptions but none has been proven since no one entered death and has returned.
It’s all in what you believe. I however, due to a near death experience, feel that if the timing is right, the soul is welcomed back home. To a place that was forgotten about during this lifetime, in order to learn what we came here to learn. I also believe that death is where we actually wake up. Where we finally have the answers to all the questions. Everything seems to make sense in this pure surrounding of love. I also believe that we continue our learning as we strive to advance to our greatest potential. I feel that we are all threads to a massive tapestry, that would not exist without our contribution nor would be as magnificent without our original beauty. If there is such a place, like I have experienced first hand, and we are all one tapestry adding colors and vibrancy with each lifetime, then we should live this life and all others without fear. Because there is no game over ever! So live, play and enjoy yourselves!
