Dear Striving Soul,
If what you really want is to feel closer to those you love, if it seems that people are going in all different directions…if you’re feeling less and less connected and more and more fragmented, here’s a simple idea.
At least once this week…set the table. Use the good dishes (or use paper plates…it doesn’t really matter).
Maybe light a candle if one is handy.
Leave the phones and screens in another room. (THIS matters) Turn on some music if you like.
Now….just talk to each other. Listen. Ask questions. Be there…be together.
Sometimes the very most important things are the simplest things….things that are easy to do…but also easy NOT to do.
You’re worth it…and they’re worth it.
You are loved.
