New Year's Resolution: Being more present with the ones I love

New Year's Resolution: Being more present with the ones I love

What a laudable goal! One path is to figure out what's getting in the way of presence: work, social media, conflict avoidance, fear of intimacy, or just a habit of not being present. It's also worthwhile just asking the ones you love what's on their minds, or complimenting them. Sometimes, for instance, I take my friend the 3rd Floor for granted, but I should be more present. Floor, I love the way you withstand thousands of footsteps daily without complaint. Thich Nhat Hanh wrote a good book about mindfulness and love: Teachings on Love.
