“Life is short.”
“Rest in peace.”
We hear these sentiments often when someone dies.
We remind ourselves that in fact life IS short, and to savor every delicious moment that we experience, to love with passion and purpose, and to be present to experience our experiences…
BEFORE WE DIE.
And then when one passes we say, “Rest in Peace (R.I.P.)
I often wonder when I observe so much hate and dissension between others, or one who has experienced trauma who turns on themselves, taking on blame that is NOT theirs to carry who lives a life of toxicity and unhealthy mindset and behaviors, “how can we recapture PEACE, and how I could support others who have lost their peace, and their wellness, to learn to “Live in Peace.” (L.I.P.)
Because Life IS short, and death comes soon enough where we will have eternity to rest.
I suggest that we sign a “Peace Treaty” with the ones we are at odds with for a compromise that we can all be excited about. “Respectful resolution.”
Speak your truth…with kindness.
I suggest that if we are living with the past tormenting our present moments that we ask for support as we unpack the trauma, embrace it, understand it, and make PEACE with it in a reframe that allows us to use it to build our resilience and self compassion that we so well deserve.
Who knows when we will be “called” to rest.
LIVE YOUR LIFE. EXPERIENCE YOUR EXPERIENCES. TAKE BABY STEPS IN HEALING YOUR TRAUMA. REACH OUT TO SOMEONE YOU LOVE IF YOU FEEL THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A “PEACE TREATY.” If not, find a re-frame for that relationship, and allow yourself to “Live in Peace,” and Wellness.
LIFE IS SHORT.
Thinking of Lisa Marie Presley. Was she able to “Live in Peace” with all that she had endured in her life?
