Getting to the Heart of the Matter

Relationships MATTER!

I recently read an article and it addressed relationship care. I thought to myself what is relationship care. Then I started thinking about how to connect during a pandemic. How technology connects us as well as can disconnect us. Really be with each other when face-to-face as well as virtually!

Think about the time you take to work, exercise, etc. Then think about the time you take with your greatest someones. Is there a good balance or could use a re-balance. 

That meaningful and nurturing time with your greatest someones matters! I really believe it helps with wholeness and balance. It helps with your health and wellness too!

I remember growing up with my group of girls and we could not get enough time together. We spent all day together in school and for hours by phone in the evenings. If we could get together on the weekends for shopping or a movie we made it happen!

As an adult I have those few close relationships where you pick up right where you left off even if it has been days, weeks or months. Also, I tend to nourish and nurture those relationships that are healthy and positive. I really try to not take those relationships for granted either. Those relationships are precious, matter and are a true gift!

With your relationships you may see an improvement in the quality of your life as well as your health and wellness! Especially in communicating and engaging. In connecting and deepening those relationships. Making the time to continue to build, grow and expand those relationships!

That nurturing of our relationships helps us nourish ourselves and our well being as well as others and their well being! It is another form of self care. It can be enriching and boosting to your whole being!

We are humans that crave connection and engagement. We are humans that want to belong to something other than ourselves. We are social beings living in a tech world.

There is nothing better than making time to spend quality time with family and friends! You do not need to spend monies either. The simplest things are totally satisfying and make your day better. That is the love and support we all crave! 

  • Gathering and sharing a meal.
  • Catching up, sharing and laughing.
  • Caring and supporting by being there, thinking about them, etc.
  • CELEBRATING!!!

That landscape has changed a bit with the pandemic. However, a lot of people are getting creative with the virtual and making time to gather and share! 

We all do our best to live well! To be kind and generous. To be compassionate and care. To just be genuine and be who we are!

    With all the various social media platforms, it easier more than ever to stay connected and maintain relationships. Nurturing those special relationships is definitely important especially during these challenging times.

    It’s been phone calls, Zoom, and texting. It all helps!

    Dude what a trip! I was just talking about that the other day with a friend. Connection, live connection is something that people didn’t miss much before because of all the social media and now people are realizing how important person-to-person hanging out time really is. It’s a good to have that core set of people. My circle of trust used to be a little bigger but has been shrinking with the years. But I do have those few friends that when they show up, we pick up where we left off and it’s so good for the soul. Hope you’re doing good! Nice to hear from you again 🙂

    Oh, I so miss seeing people in person, those relationships that are so important in my life. Just the other day, on my birthday, my eldest arranged a zoom call with our immediate family. It was lovely to see and chat with everyone. Yet, the next day, sadness swept over me because I really want to see each of my children, their spouses and my grandkids in person. I miss them. I miss my friends, too. And visiting with my mom in her care center room, rather than on a phone through glass.

    I don’t think any of us will ever take our relationships and the time we have together for granted.

    Thank you so much for this! This is my very first time to do ANY of this blog stuff and I just realized how much I have lost touch with my tribe. I have become a loner because of the virus and avoiding social media because it is so very depressing. My family is in another state and my friends are scattered throughout the planet – I thank you because I now realize it is time to reach out and reconnect to be sure that they are all well and maintaining their sanity through these changing times, as I was beginning to question my own! Peace and Love to you
