Another year is coming to an end, a new one is approaching. My wish for us all is captured in the words of the German poet Elli Michler – her poem “I wish you time” is a reminder that the way we spend our time on a day-to-day basis, ends up being the way we spend our lives.
I just wish you what most people don’t have:
The relation we have with time frames our actions, dreams, hopes and fears. Most of us are slaves of time, we feel like there is never enough, and we are often trapped in the past, anxious about the future and incapable of being present to what is. Working with burnout, trauma and resilience, and through my own personal life challenges, I’m learning to appreciate the importance not just of time, but of quality time – at work, with loved ones, in life.
For these holidays and for 2018 I wish us all time, quality time.
