The people who stand by us

Listen to our podcast episode on this topic or read the blog post below. Dealer’s choice.

Is it me or does time seem to go faster the older (cough cough) I mean wiser we get? Hours fly by. Days and weeks feel like months ago. Yet we still keep moving forward because what else are we to do? No point in looking back and wondering where time went unless it’s to learn and assess what more we can do with our upcoming time that we may not have previously. Or more we can take advantage of. The more we should be doing with the ones we love during the time we do have.

And here’s the thing. It’s not about fitting people in when it’s convenient for us. Yes, schedules get difficult, but we need to remember it’s about making time for those who matter to us and those we matter to.

On a similar note it’s not about quantity, it’s about quality time. It can be time to:

  • Have a weekly phone call to catch up
  • Have a coffee date
  • Make the time to travel to see one another (maybe in a mutual location)
  • Send a card to remind those you are thinking of them
  • Find time for a monthly check-in

And it’s not just about the birthdays and holidays, find time outside that too. Small or big, it’s about the sentiment and effort put in.

Think about the ones who take the time to reach out to you. The ones who are there whenever you need it. Are you there for them too? Do you check in just to ask how they are doing? And not just talk about yourself or ask for a favor?

We all get busy, but it’s not an excuse to neglect the ones who matter.

So instead, let’s make a little extra time. Even for that check-in text or phone call.

Until next time, #radiatedaily
