Creating Positive Change

 -- Quote of the Day -- 


Presence is a noun, not a verb;
 it is a state of being, not doing. 
States of being are not highly valued in a culture 
that places a high priority on doing. 
Yet, true presence, or ‘being with’ another person 
carries with it a silent power – to bear witness to a passage, 
to help carry an emotional burden, 
or to begin a healing process.”   

~ Debbie Hall
