Every year during the holiday season, I get a gift from one of my advisors I worked with in the 90’s. It makes me feel special that she always remembers our relationship and the time we spent together. At that time, I was vulnerable and scared and needing a strong advocate for professional and personal changes. She was right there with my favorite coffee, incredible materials and her wisdom and caring. Our two-hour sessions have impacted me throughout my life’s journey and when I get this package from her each year, it reminds me of her effectiveness and my adaptability.
When one is remembered over time, it embeds a message of worthiness. Consistency of caring is an art. It takes effort and consciousness. It takes two: a giver and a receiver. In this example, I am honored to be the receiver and grateful for the giver.
As the year draws to a close, I am thinking of the rhythms of my life that are always there and keep my feet on the ground, my heart open, my soul vibrant.
And I am grateful to be remembered, acknowledged and cared for over time.
