You are a Gift

How we turned our family's holiday gift exchange into a chance to really  connect |

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.”


― Jim Valvano

ME:

What is the hardest thing I am ever going to do?

OLD WOMAN:

To see yourself and every person as a gift.

ME:

What kind of gift?

OLD WOMAN:

The best kind. Based on the way you see yourself and how you receive others.

ME:

How?

OLD WOMAN:

If you receive yourself and other’s as worthy, lovable spiritual creations – perfect just the way they are – you get to see highest possible version of who you are. You get to be that. Experience that. And you become a gift to the world.

ME:

Sounds hard.

OLD WOMAN:

The longer you think that, the harder it gets.

Richard Wagamese – Embers

We get to choose how we treat ourselves and others each day.
