This post goes out to all those parents delving into the frenzy of fall. The following poem by Virginia Satir, a well-known psychotherapist and pioneer of family therapy, is a poignant reminder that being present is truly at the heart of raising a healthy family. Read it, soak it in, and post it in your kitchen or family room – wherever the heart of your house it. Let it shine light on your day, inform your conversations around the table and in the car, and gently tuck you in bed at night.
*Life balance as a parent can be challenging! Taking a moment to nourish you can reduce stress and anxiety as well as open up new pathways for living.
