What if the challenge of choosing to be present was only 'hard', not 'impossible'?
Yesterday we talked about the value of being present in the midst of our activities - specifically physical activities such as running. Today I want to get a bit more curious ...
One of the things you will often hear me grumble about in my race reports is when people where headphones during races. It's about safety in part, but what if there was more to it than that?

Today we're going to finish our 'back-to-school checklist'. We've already looked at 'next right steps' and 'celebration', and today we're moving on to Rhythm, Ritual and Rest.
The wonderful thing about 'next right steps' parenting is that it gives us lots of chances to CELEBRATE with our child! And children desperately need more celebration!
This week I want to remind you of three of my favourite tools for raising adults by 18 - 'next right steps', celebration, and rhythm, ritual and rest.
