Too Late?

by Rosalyn Bronstein

Why is it that we tend to value relationships more once they've ended? Is it simply human nature to take for granted the smile of someone close, the friendship of a relative, the concern of a neighbor? In the moment, we think that these people will be around forever.

Most of us never stop to imagine all those who have a profound impact on our lives. It's so easy to justify this casual attitude by saying we are too busy, too tired, too involved with work, too concerned about money, and the list of excuses goes on and on. So enjoying a friendship may be put off for one day, and then another. Before long, feelings have faded, and there is less incentive to get together. Almost relegated to a chore now, precious moments become something to endure.

Usually, something dramatic must happen to change this apathy and pull one out of a rut. Perhaps it's something shocking, like a death, a divorce, sudden illness, an accident -- something stunning to force taking notice. Then comes the guilt, the re-assessment of feelings, the sadness of loss. And the worst of all -- knowing how unnecessary and perhaps preventable the situation could have been.

We long to have those precious moments once again, to share and express our feelings. Instead of waiting for an excuse, why not get out of the rut, take the initiative, and spend quality time with the people you value. Let them know how really important they are.

Nature of Love
Love is meant to be free, you cannot change its nature. If there are people you love, allow them to be free beings. Give and don't expect. Advise, but don't order. Ask, but never demand.

And then there isÖ contentment
Contentment is the break that the soul needs to reenergize for future encounters with turbulence. Itís the deep breath that we take when we are in full nature, and we feel that our lungs need fresh air. Itís the essence of life, and the decisive factor between giving up and persevering.

Courage To Live
Courage is deciding not to put your current desires above your desires for the future. Courage is deciding there's something more important.

Communicating from the Heart
How many times have you kicked yourself for how you said something or how it was received? Your intentions may have been good, but the other person ended up feeling hurt or angry or worse. You ask yourself, "What could I have said so no one had bad feelings?"
