It is easy for us to get stuck in our heads. Meaning our thoughts, responsibilities, schedule, and life are top of mind before considering what is going on around us. Some people refer to it as wearing horse blinders that serve to keep us from being distracted from our current focus or mission. We agree wholeheartedly that we all need to take better care of ourselves and do what we need to do in order to thrive in life. However, we live in community, therefore we can’t ignore those around us if we want to inspire and create more togetherness. So, this week, while being there for yourself, we also want you to BE THERE for someone else. Being there for someone starts with awareness. It literally means looking up… from our phones, computers, paper, desk… and looking around. But awareness takes more than just seeing someone. It requires us to really “see” someone with the intention of getting a sense of how they are doing. Sadly, we live in a time where being there for someone is as needed as ever. Our hearts have been broken by the tragedies in the news, and we are all dealing with it and processing it in the best way we know. But let’s not judge. Let’s not disconnect. Let’s not give up. Rather, let’s lean in even further and extend open arms to one another. Our world needs healing, and we are the only ones who can do it. So take care of yourself and be of service to others… which is really how we are supposed to do life anyway. Being there matters.
