I do realise this is probably something you’ve heard before. A lot of times. But please stick with me on this one.
Day to day when you’re busy being successful, stressed, anxious, embroiled emotionally and physically in every aspect of your own life, it’s very easy to neglect those around you who matter the most. In fact, and we’ve all been here, it’s often the case that we will treat the ones we love the worst, because we know that they accept our flaws, and love us for who we are, no matter how they treat us.
Don’t forget that this is one of the most precious and rare amenities available to us an human beings. Unconditional love, respect and interest isn’t easy to find, is it? Think about how many people you’ve spoken to, been fiends with, been on dates with, who you’ve worried may not like you? Might even be bored by you? How many times have you had this with family?
Families aren’t always easy. We know this! But who can you count on the most in your life?
Take some time today, or even this week, to be a little thankful for your family. Maybe spend some time with them. Cook for them, buy your Mum flowers, take your Dad out for a drink. Appreciate what you have.
