This quote jumped out at me when reading a magazine, so I cut it out to save in my inspiration binder. Whether with our partner or children or friends, I think being fully present is increasingly challenging in our very busy, LOUD, and somewhat chaotic world. How often do we give someone the gift of our full presence, our attention and listening and our heart focused solely on supporting and hearing them? As a doula I think this is a crucial skill we need to develop, a way we can better support and nurture the growing family through their pregnancy and birth experience. I love the quote, and thought you may appreciate it, too! Spend some time today giving someone you love the gift of your presence.
