The late Mark Twain said “There isn't time, so brief is life, for bickerings, apologies, heartburnings, callings to account. There is only time for loving, and but an instant, so to speak, for that.” What does this really mean? Does it mean that you have to prevent yourself from situations of bickerings, apologies and heartburnings? Denying a mistake or a time you have hurt someone’s heart? No! It means, regardless of all bickerings, apologies and heartburnings creating space to love. During an apology, removing fear and adding a little bit of love.

During heartburnings, showing yourself and others love through compassion.

During bickerings, holding a space for someone that needs to be loved. So brief is life, there is only time for loving. Lovely New Year!
