Presence is an essential feature to any loving relationship.
As you get older, to be present is as important or more important than active participation.
You need to be there when you're needed, but step back to let others take the helm of their own lives and decisions.
To be present means making the space and time so you're available when someone wants to stop by, share a story, or ask a question. It means a less-full routine and more spacious mind-space and life-space that welcomes others.
Being there matters, and to truly be there for others is a conscious choice.
