The Gift of Being Present

The hustle and bustle of Christmas is in full swing. It’s a time of year that is full of so many emotions: joy, excitement, sadness, loneliness, hope, anxiety, love, anticipation, stress…the list goes on.

This year I think the biggest present we can give anyone is presence, not presents.

1. The actual act of being in the same room as loved ones is a gift. More than ever, we realize how special this is.

2. Being present for someone who needs a listening ear is profound. The entire world has experienced a traumatic event over the last 20 months that is still ongoing. EVERYONE could benefit from someone just listening. Everyone has a story to tell.

3. Be present with yourself. I think this one is the hardest of all. Try to be present with what is going on in the moment. Don’t think about what you need to get done next or what might happen. Just enjoy the moment you are experiencing right now.

This holiday season, we hope you are able to give and receive the gift of presence.
