Today I'm stopping by to urge you to cease being distracted by or consumed with thoughts of being with people who are not in your life whether by choice or circumstance and fully focus on the those that are!
Those who know me well, know I'm in introspection mode regularly. I often highlight the importance of consistently assessing where you are and what's the impact you're having on those around you, especially those who stand by you, support, love, and care for you.
As humans, we find ourselves at times being consumed with thoughts of people we wished would be more integrated and close knitted in our lives. We desire more intimate relationships and quality time with them.
Then there are those we wished would appreciate us, stop downplaying our growth and successes, bad mouthing us because of envy and covetousness; even those who are so engrossed and caught up in the business of their day-to-day lives it slips them to make an effort to connect.
While the desire for bonding with them may be real and I'm not downplaying the impact on you, focusing incessantly on the breakdown, infrequency or fragmentation of these relationships should not cause you to reject, abandon or neglect those who are active in your life.
Let them know you appreciate and love them! Simple acts of gratitude go a long way in letting them know you care.
