Wellness Wednesday : Gather
It was this image on a TV show that we saw. An image of a family gathered around a table and the dynamics that occurred when they did. Everyone so different yet there was a unity that survived around that table.
They had gathered.
Many of us long for this type of ease. But is it ease? How do we balance the high demands of real life with the desire to stay connected and respectful of each other?
Getting an extended family gathered routinely creates an opportunity for unity and understanding.
What keeps us from gathered?
Expectations, technology, schedule conflicts .... a myriad of life.
How can we connect in an 'organic' way with our close and extended family? Can it be a routine added or a sporadic moment? A moment to unplug from our screens and share in an activity? Or simply a weekly walk?
Whatever works for your family dynamic, gathering takes initiative and is a journey into wellness with each other.
What works for your family?
