How Do You Show Up?

A wonderful, kind, “life-of-the-party” and nearly 50-year-old man died in our community this past week. He had young children, a beautiful wife, and he was loved by many people.

A few years ago, one of my brothers also died at age 51.

It is so heart-wrenching when people you love die.

How do losses of our loved ones make “sense?”

They don’t.

When we are reminded about life’s fragility, we can do our best to help grieving families.

And we can recognize the truth that none of us truly knows how long we – or our loved ones – will be on this earth.

We can appreciate ourselves and our loved ones now.

We can ask ourselves: How do we show up each day?

Are we filled with pettiness, complaints, anger or resentment?

Today, is there someone or something you can:

  • stop complaining about – and perhaps take action to improve?
  • let go of?
  • forgive?
  • show kindness to?

I need to be reminded to do all of these things. I would love to hear if this helps you!
