Presence is a gift we give ourselves and those around us.
During the holidays, it can be so easy to get wrapped up in presents and gift giving, that often times we forget to be present ourselves.
We are so busy multi-tasking and making sure our work is done, our kids are happy, we mailed the holiday cards, and we bought gifts for everyone on our list. With all the to dos on our list, we forget, or don’t take the time, to be present. All of this is compounded with the fact that we are glued to technology these days (I swear it’s a blessing and a curse).
Instead of focusing on the to do lists and gifts, cherish these moments and focus on being fully present for your loved ones. Give them the gift of your presence and maybe you will be gifted with their presence. This is the gift that continues grow long after the holidays are over.
Happy New Year!
