What I’m Grateful For: Connectedness
Last week’s post on solitude got a lot of response…. ironically, as I wrote about solitude I heard back from so many people that I felt very connected! Which made me think about how grateful I am to be connected to so many amazing people.
I also deeply appreciate the way that technology allows us to be more connected across greater distances. I know that technology has also made it easier for us to communicate in short, shallow bursts, but it can also be a vehicle for in-depth exploration, two-hour podcasts that allow us to be “in conversation” with some of the world’s best thinkers, and the ability to correspond in a variety of ways, as deeply as we choose to engage.
What I’m Reading: Mindsight by Daniel J. Siegel, MD
A fascinating book focused on the integration of brain science and psychotherapy – with solid research, engaging writing and immediately accessible tools. This book elegantly links hard science with personal anecdotes and stories, ending each topic with actionable strategies. Ideal book for parents too, as this delves into attachment theory and the ways in which our earliest years can create particular neural strategies that can “run” us for our entire lives, unless we can find a way to create new mental models and ways of being.

Quick Web Tip: With soliciting on the rise, be wary of calls from “Google” – this is a scam to get your credit card information and to get you to pay for something they cannot deliver! Google will not reach out to you to tell you that you are not showing up, they will call you if you are already a high spender on their AdWords platform. If you have any questions call us, we are here to protect you!
