Be Still

My days begin very early. As I backed out of my home, I looked up and saw the beautiful, colorful sunrise. It was stunning. I noticed three women down the street gazing at the sky in silence.

Over the past two weeks, I have had the opportunity to meet several new people from all over the world, all walks of life, multigenerational. I have duly noted one interesting fact. When I make true eye contact and listen, the connection begins. A simple gesture and practice, but a powerful one.

I met with a friend recently and it was through genuine eye contact and few words that she was able to let her guard down and share her struggles. As I interact with my children I have a rule for myself to ignore my phone and refuse to multi-task. Every moment with them is precious, tasks can wait.<
