Do you have plans to spend some time with the people you care about the most? If not, stop what you are doing right now and think about something special you can do with your kids, spouse, significant other or friend that you will really enjoy.
Sometimes our most special memories happen when there’s nothing special going on at all. I know Saturday mornings can be busy with household chores, but taking an hour to snuggle on the couch to watch cartoons with your kids can become a lasting memory. On the other hand, stepping away from the TV to take a moonlight walk with your spouse can bring you closer through unhurried conversation.
Coffee dates with friends can be very effective therapy for a stressed out mom or hardworking student. Men can experience some great bonding time by working together on a project. If you have a repair to do on your house or car, consider calling a buddy or a teenage guy to be your helper.
Life is jam-packed with obligations, work and “adulting” (as the young people like to say). Being open to opportunities to strengthen your relationships with people you care about and create memories will add richness to your life and refreshment to your spirit. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or even take a lot of time – just something you’ll be glad you did.
Get in touch with someone you love right now – by phone, text or by just walking into the other room and invite them to hang out with you.
Live, Work & Relate Well!
