As I bid you Happy Christmahanakwanzika I want you to dole out one more gift to someone this year! This gift is priceless and only requires that you give a little bit of your time and a dash of your heart. This season I want you to give one person your undivided attention. The best holiday gifts in the world doesn't supersede the love and connection someone can experience just by spending time with you. YOU are an inspiration, a beacon of light. Your story, your experience and life goals will move this person, and this person wants to share his or her heart and life story, and in turn move you too. In this week's Sun-day design I want you to give one hour of your time to someone you rarely associate with. This person may be a colleague or fair-weather friend whom you've given little time or energy to. Offer this person one hour, your ear, and your heart and watch this person blossom right before your eyes.
As you share your experience, dreams, and life story with the person you bestow this one hour gift, be sure to allow this person to share his or her story in turn. And for once, really listen. Suspend judgment, quell any urges to fix or make suggestions, and put away the phone to avoid any distractions. Listen with your heart and your mind. As you spend this one precious hour together tell this person:
The life we experience is designed to help us grow. My wish is that you learn from me as much as I learn from you. Share your life lessons and let's build together.
