The best gifts you can give

December 08 2014

Time.

For others and for yourself.

Give yourself the time and space to reflect and just be. No expectations of what should happen or what must be done.

We get so caught up in the day-to-day, making lists and checking obligations. We forget to step back and see, “How lucky am I? How did I end up like this?” It’s important to count the steps you’ve taken and recognize the work you’ve put in.

Be still. It is in these sitting moments your deepest dreams — and fears — become evident. Realizations like nothing is perfect, we can only work to make things better.

Gratitude.

We have no idea what the future holds.

I can only be grateful in this moment.
