What are you missing?
Tonight as I held onto my daughter as she fell asleep, I told her, “I miss you so bad.” And I meant it.
I have been around her. Eaten at the same table as her. Slept in the same house, and a couple nights even the same room as her. But I still missed her.
It’s entirely possible to live life around people and never be truly with them.
The beginning of the end
I think that is the beginning of a divorce, the end to a business partnership and the color of friendship beginning to fade into obscurity.
In a busy world we take someone ‘for granted’ because they are near and don’t realize that proximity doesn’t equal relationship.
Knowing that you are with someone and realizing that you haven’t spent quality time with them is a key indicator that it’s time to change it up. Focus in.
Make people a priority
That’s what Ashtyn and I did tonight. We snuggled up, shut the world out, and watched the movie she chose. At the end – it wasn’t enough.
So you know what? No matter what tomorrow brings, I’m going to make it a priority to be with, enjoy, and make my daughter important.
I couldn’t think of a more worthy time investment.
I can’t be alone in this…
Surely you can weigh in on this. Have you ever been surround by family or friends and felt alone?
Or, has someone you thought you had been spending ‘time’ with ever come to you and talked about not feeling invested in?
What did you do to change it?
