Connect With A Loved One

on

The people in our lives are one of our biggest and most important sources of joy. All too often, we take them for granted. We get wrapped up in the daily details of life and forget to notice how wonderful we feel about the people that we love. Pause for a moment and get in touch with one of your favorite people. Don’t wait until it’s a “better time;” do it right now.

You can reach out to people in so many ways. Text, email, voice message, call, video chat, write a letter, send a message through social media, or visit the person you care about. Tell them that you’re thinking about them. Go further than that and tell them exactly what makes them special in your life. As you do, really savor what it is that you appreciate about them. It might be a favorite memory or a quirky habit you love or their steady presence in your life or the way that they make you laugh at the smallest of things. Whatever it is, enjoy it in your mind and share it with them.

Don’t worry about whether they’re busy or you’re interrupting them or it’s not the best time of day.

For this one moment, don’t let any worries get in the way of you honoring the importance of that person in your life. If you still have hesitations, just think about how you would feel to get a message like the one you’re about to send, even if it’s in the middle of a workday, or at midnight, or while you’re working on a stressful project. It would still feel good, right? Of course. So, don’t deprive your favorite person of having that experience. And don’t deprive yourself of connecting deeply in this authentic way. Even when it’s brief, making time for a loved one almost always bring us closer to joy if we look for it.
