In Others’ Words: Living Life Unwrapped
The Christmas season isn’t that far past — the time of giving and getting presents. Truth be told, I still have wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows waiting to be organized and put away until next year.
There’s something almost too lovely to touch about a present wrapped just so with coordinating paper and ribbons. But I’ll admit a partiality to the less than perfect gifts wrapped with just as much love, if not as much finesse. It doesn’t matter the size of the package — small, medium, or large — I know the giver was thinking of me as the wrapping was done.
And then there are the times I become wrapped up in myself. The me, myself, and I times … when my focus turns inward and stays there. How small I become at those times when my vision goes no further than myself, when my concern stays firmly centered on what I need, what I want, even what I hope and pray for.
Small thinking. Small living. Small me.
May I live large … may we live large … offering ourselves to others in a way that allows the wrapping to be ripped off, the ribbons to be flung aside, and real life lived where we consider others more important than ourselves.
In Others’ Words: How do you live your life unwrapped — avoiding “small package” syndrome?
