A TIME FOR GRATITUDE AND CELEBRATION. . .

Dear friend, 

We have much to celebrate and be grateful for.

What are you looking forward to during this time of the year?

This ongoing pandemic has brought disruption to our lives. Instead of focusing on all the things we can no longer do, why not focus on the simple things that we can do? We may not all be able to carry out the usual traditions this time of the year, but we can still choose to celebrate and spend time with loved ones all the same.

I was not present for my mother’s 80th last week and my father turns 88 this month. It will be the first time I won’t be able to celebrate his birthday in person along with our family. Instead, we’ll be celebrating over Zoom, where we’ll cut a cake on both sides and enjoy it together as a family

I am not physically with my sons as often as I’d like, but once a week over Zoom, we sit together with their mother to “eat” as a family despite being in different time zones.

A family that chews together, chooses together. By having weekly conversations that we can “chew on”, we continue to learn how to relate with each other.

Though we may be apart from our loved ones, we’re experiencing a deeper level of connection and loving as the pandemic has pushed us to be more present. We have been nudged to reflect on who and what is truly important, allowing us to create new rituals to share on a deeper level

Conversations have shifted from “how are you doing?” to “how are you feeling?“.

As the year comes to close, let’s reflect on what we are grateful for and make an extra effort to be loving and caring towards our loved ones.

I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

 

With love and gratitude,

Feisal

Quotes to Inspire

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”

– Brene Brown

“Relationships can help heal our wounds – If we show up as our authentic self. When we borrow a sense of identity, we compromise this transformative experience.”
