What is important for Dr. Morris during the holidays?
The holiday's can be a time of many emotions- the joy of giving, sadness at missing our loved ones, frustration and overwhelm at what's going on in the world and much more... It is also a time when our responsibilities may exceed the time we have to "spread the joy" and that is why it's important for me to remember what's important in the moments we have and how we want to be in those moments.
What's important for me is being with family, friends, and doing things that "fill my bucket". This was the name a book my kids got when they were little explaining the things we do to put a smile on someone's face, be kind or considerate, or choose to do "the right thing."
At this point, my amazon orders won't be in on time for Christmas and I don't have any time left for shopping, sooo the best present I have to give anyone is what Thich Nhat Hanh calls my "true presence." This state of presence is what fills my bucket. It means embodying the state of "I am here for you." This true presence is what I strive to give my patients most of all and it is the greatest gift I can give myself, my family and others this holiday and always.
