My father lived for my visits home to Vancouver - from my graduate school college days until he passed away 3 years ago. I never appreciated how much he held onto every minute with me until Sunday when my son Josh returned to college (Miami University where I did my master's degree).
After Josh left, I walked into his room and broke down and cried. My dog is still moping around and hasn't left Josh's bedroom ....
If nothing else, the pandemic has helped us cherish the gift of time. The gift of being present. A renewed opportunity to seize the moment because we don't know what tomorrow will bring.
Like my dad, I savored every moment, every memory I could get with Josh. I arranged my work schedule around Josh's schedule so that I could be present with him at home -- in our PJ's, enjoying t he simplicities in life like talking, watching movies and hockey games.
Our lives are so much more integrated now while working from home, attending back-to-back Zoom meetings, working-out at home, adjusting to new routines, home schooling kids, juggling work-family responsibilities, etc.
So how are you keeping yourself, your tele-workers and/or your virtual meeting attendees present and engaged?
