At this time of year, it is not uncommon to hear someone say, “Give the gift of presence rather than presents.” It makes sense. After all, the December holidays have been commercialized beyond repair and it’s easy to miss the opportunity to be present with the people with whom gather.
Being present can be risky, but could also be worth it! Connection is what makes us human. This holiday season, I challenge you to have intentional conversations with your family or friends. Don't worry, I make some suggestions for how to do this to help you out.
