Sawubona. I see you.
In South Africa, where I come from, “sawubona” is the Zulu word for “hello.” There’s a beautiful and powerful intention behind the word because “sawubona,” literally translated, means, “I see you, and by seeing you, I bring you into being.”
At its core, emotional agility is about the capacity to see ourselves and others in a wholehearted and healthy way. It’s a set of essential psychological skills for our complex world—a world that often chooses not to see. It is more than just a skill set I teach, it’s what I try to live by, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to share it with you.
