After spending the weekend with my long distance best friend who came to visit me I am left feeling happy and blessed. It got me thinking about how we spend our time with those we love. I cherish every time my friend comes down and I don’t want to waste a minute of our precious and limited time together.
This got me to wondering about how we spend our time with those we love day to day. It is so easy to get caught up in the stress and craziness of life to just go through the motions. We see our friends and family, but do we really take the time to talk and just enjoy one another? As my husband and I work toward this goal of owning a business together I hope to embrace this journey and not take it for granted. We love being around each other, but it can become routine and robotic if not worked at.
It is important to make an effort to have quality time with those you love every day. Whether it is a phone call with your mom, dad or loved one or just spending time with your kids. Make sure to do something that makes you both happy and more connected. Feeling connected to those you care about is the secret to happiness and I know I want to look back and think “I’m glad I did” not “I wish I had”.
Call a friend. Play a game with your kids. Take a walk with your spouse. Do something and be glad you did, because we only get one chance at this crazy life and it is better spent with those we love.
