“I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.”
– Maya Angelou
These are wise words indeed. But I’ve come to notice that many people throw and throw and throw… that it’s the catching they have trouble with. There are the amazing givers who are not at all great at receiving. There are the millions of people working two or three jobs who don’t receive a living wage. There are the people who equate their worth with their output, who never feel they do enough, who are uncomfortable receiving help of any kind.
The game of catch is a game of balance, of rhythm. Throw and catch, throw and catch.
Do you have a catcher’s mitt on your hand?
