In family therapy practice, I’ve been struck lately by the genius of my clients in moving forward at just the right pace. Sometimes people will choose to make great quantum leaps, changing jobs, altering relationships, saying and doing things which are more supportive of the lives they intend to create moving forward. And sometimes we just need to rest, giving ourselves a break from all the doing, and enjoying what we have.
In addition to the ones who are dearest to us, all of us have been blessed and entrusted with a great gift, the gift of ourselves. In this season of gift giving and of growing new light, may we all realize what has been truly given and come to increase our knowledge of what and how we may give back in return.
