Journal Fodder 365 - Prompt #17
A new chapter in Journal Fodder 365 and the prompt is being present and being absent.
If I am absent from something spiritually or emotionally, even if I am there physically, then I am not bringing my best self to the situation. We are all a unique mix of gifts, talents, skills, temperament. We are all necessary. If I am absent in some way I cannot contribute.
If I am fully present, bringing all I have to the party, then I can bring my unique viewpoint. I can give and receive, bless and be blessed, love and be loved, grow and cause growth.
When I am absent, I am isolating myself from community.
When I am fully present, I can play a part.
