Do you make time for your friends, or are you too busy rushing through life trying to be successful, to be happy, to be thinner, to be prettier, to be richer… It's like when people go to the doctor and the doctor says… so how are you and people reply, yeah good thanks…?? people are so on autopilot, that the words are out of their mouths before they have even thought about the question. Its time to be still and listen, people are rushing here and there, no time to stop and listen to their friends cry for help, or even to see behind the smile we have all put on at times, to toughen up and keep moving. We think no one wants to hear about how shitty our day was or that the kids are driving us nuts, or that you haven't had 5 minutes to yourself for so long. The list can be long…
I feel such a great need to share, that life is more meaningful when we start to care deeply about others. A hug, a smile, 5mins or more of our time to listen. When was the last time you stopped and listened, when was the last time you cared enough to help without the want of anything in return, when did you notice the redness of your friends eyes, but didn't want to get stuck with their ‘stuff', so moved on quickly. People/life is becoming or has become so dysfunctional. I say to you to apply this to your life. Take some time to care, to feel how the other person might be feeling. You might be really amazed at how you feel about yourself and how by simply being there for someone can make your whole day. Blessings and love to you all
