Presence

Today I am grateful for lessons in acceptance and ill-placed expectations. I am also grateful for the hours of sleep I got last night. Each was needed after an exhausting day yesterday.

Today's Wellness Week theme is "Presence: Wherever you are, be all there."

Be all there Lisa, pausing to write two things I am grateful for in my gratitude journal just now.

Be all there Lisa, as I have conversations today with individuals and as part of groups. Be all there as a listener, valuing the person you are listening to.

Be all there Lisa, as I prepare a simple breakfast and sit to partake of it.

Wherever you are, be all there. It can be a tall order when the day gets underway. All we can do is try.

Presence is the best present to give ourselves and those around us.
