One of the easiest ways to lift ourSelves up is to lift someone else up.
Be someone’s present today. By being present. Talk to a loved one. Or someone that crosses your path. Maybe someone’s waiting in line with you somewhere, looking like they could use some cheering up in these crazy times. Don’t distract yourself texting or checking your social media or kondoing up your sock drawer or picking your teeth while talking to them. Devote your full attention to them. Let that connection happen. In this very moment, it is the single most beautiful and important gift you can give.
That Gift to Someone Else’s Self is also the ultimate Gift to yourSelf.
We are reminded these days that this is the most important joy, duty and responsibility we have in life: To be present with All We Are.
