Book Blurb –
Living Lightly is a daily devotional that offers a year’s worth of opportunities to commune, in the deepest and most beautiful sense of that word, with your self and your life. Partners and therapists, Dale and Kim Curd step through the universal doorways of life and offer us a nudge to slow down and experiences to help return us to our selves. Their personal reflections invoke gentle introspection and come from their own healing journeys and from being active therapists. Living Lightly invites you to explore how your mind works, understand and express your feelings and be reminded that you are much, much stronger than you realize. Living Lightly is a great way to start or end the day.
Excerpt - p.403 December
“When we talk about our dreams and our journey, sharing a bit of ourselves, we send out a signal, a welcome invitation to connect with others who might be on the same path. Time to step into the invitation that “how are you?” offers.
Sharing about the good that is happening in our lives can be awk- ward at first. We may worry about sounding as though we’re bragging or that people won’t be interested. We need to feel good, right down into our bones, when it comes to sharing about ourselves.
A wee bit of truth-telling goes a long way for our hearts!
Let me start: “I’m really excited to be writing this book with my partner. The feeling of words coming, the fact that I care so much and knowing that we have the opportunity to work together are really exciting.”
It’s important to sidestep the need for another to approve, agree or encourage. The good feelings come purely from sharing. And a short share is enough for us to feel our joy. The other feels it too, and that is our gift to them.
Neighbours and dear friends are starting to say, “I dream of having a really great partner too” or “I love hearing about your life. You are a bright light for me.” What a special way to connect in a few minutes. Sharing our joy is honouring for ourselves and another.”
