The Importance of Living Deeply

Posted on: March 19, 2010

               It is so easy for all of us to get caught
               up in the hurried flow of life. When we do,
               we run the risk of skimming over the more
               meaningful moments and opportunities that
               would allow us to experience our lives
               in their complete richness and fullness.
              
               Adolescence comes and goes so fast. Our
               daughters grow up so fast.  Therefore, it
               is important for us to take the time to be
               genuine with our daughters. These will be
               special times for us and for our daughters
               as well.
              
               After all, at the end of our lives, it will
               not be how much we got done, how many ‘to do’
               lists we got through, or how much money
               we accumulated that will matter. What will
               be important will be the depth to which we
               lived our own lives and the extent to which
               we positively impacted the lives of others.
               This is what gives life meaning.
              
               One important way to live life deeply is to
               share meals together. Preparing meals
               together is such a powerful symbolic
               connection. It is how we nurture one
               another, how we surprise and please, how
               we survive, how we give the gift of life
               each and every day.
              
               So, invite your daughter into the kitchen
               and have some grounding time with your
               daughter. It is one of the best ways to
               live deeply.
