Relationships can be difficult. But if we cultivate mindfulness and courage, we can embrace the riches and risks of love and experience growth and meaning.
We improve and grow into fallible stability with our kids, who, through our dialectical dance, teach us as much as we teach them. Maybe more so.
Depleted attention leaves us in a pall of ignorance, blinding us to opportunities to connect with ourselves, our spouses, and even our children. Depleted attention impedes even our willingness to try to muster our minimal reserves of attention to seek ways to energize our attention through the simple acts of walking with our beloved while holding their precious hand.
“I know Scott outside his professional services. He is a good man, with a rare sense of presence that is hard to find in this professional world. His heart is always on his sleeve. Bless his good work!”
