Have you ever asked yourself what really matters in life?
Today I am going to share a gentle wake up call... Think about it… at the end of the day, what does your heart ache or break for?
What do you live for? What will you remember most when your journey on this earth is reaching its last days?
I would like to think that the people we share love with are what REALLY matter the most – our family (spiritual or chosen), friends, community, relationships with our neighbors and everyone that touches our lives in a positive way. These people that elevates us, accept us for who we are, not for what we have. Not because of our car, clothes, shoes, the shape of our bodies or the color of our skin.
I believe our mental, physical and spiritual health are dependent on how healthy our relationships are and how they affect our connections in our own lives.
In my observation of our modern society, we are creating new channels of connection through advanced technology. I am truly grateful for that.
Nothing can ever substitute a warm hug, making meaningful eye contact, a comforting word coming from the heart to your ears or just that physical connection that bonds us and helps us feel a sense of belonging.
We are spending lots of time with computers, tablets and games.
We need to find time and safety for what matters in life, so that we can be happier, more fulfilled and experience deeper connections with those around us.
People need quality time for true friendship, a happy relationship is something that needs to be nurtured over time.
I know we can help each other and our connections can bring joy into the world, one person at a time! Lulu Carter
