Eventually even the new becomes oblivious. Ultimately the vibrancy of just about anything simply fades to black.
In a culture of attainment, we often spend far too much time attaining than appreciating all we’ve already gathered into our lives.
Especially when it comes to the people we share our lives with.
Does your someone special know they are still special? Or do you assume they just know it, even though they can’t remember the last time you made them feel that way? And neither can you?
Think of the significant relationships you have in your life as a child, parent, sibling, partner, friend…even your relationship with your self. Has what once made these relationships resonate so deeply within you been tempered by the unintentional but perhaps inevitable cloud of indifference?
None of us would probably look at our relationships and accuse ourselves of becoming indifferent. But while indifference isn’t the intention, often it becomes the result, no matter how well we “justify” our excuses.
Sometimes we just lose our way when we focus on what we think we are missing. A slight shift in focus towards what we already have is the first step on the path leading us back home.
The greatest gift we can ever give is the gift of ourselves, wrapped in love and tied with a bow of compassion. Such a gift restores the original lustre to any relationship, returning the magic to the magical, uplifting both the sender and the recipient.
But even the greatest gift is useless if it is never given.
In a challenging world we all call home, has there ever been a more important time for giving the gift of your love?
Love is always best served proactively.
It’s a great day to be you!
