Dying Man’s Daily Journal – People in our lives

I have come to realize it is the people in our lives that are the most important, most valuable and all to often the most under appreciated part of our lives. This really is so sad when I think of it. It is the people in our lives. Those that mean the very most to us.
A tough day at work and what do we so often do? Take it out on those that mean the most to us at home.
I think of it. Your small child accidentally sills a glass of milk, how often do we get upset? The next day you have company over. Their child spills a glass of milk. Do we react in the same way?
I look around at my life and see I am blessed to have the people in my life that I do. I have come to realize that those you just know will be there for you in a crisis can seem to fade from sight. Loving support is always there often from those from whom you least expect it. Value all people in your life. Accept that as people come into our lives for a reason. They come giving us opportunities to learn life lessons. Appreciate them while they are there but allow them to fade. Focus time and energy on those that remain. Focus on the positive, let go of the negative it/they will only bring you down. Yes, I said they, being negative people they will drain the energy the life right out of you

    There’s a really good writing about people coming into our lives for reasons and seasons….and it’s okay for them to journey on, be that after 10 minutes or 10 years….and I truly believe that. Things happen with purpose, though often I don’t connect the dots until long after the course of events. LOL…slow learner!! And I echo agreement on the seemingly human trait of treating the ones closest to us with the least amount of gratitude/kindness/patience/tolerance….which is just absurdly sad, ya know?
    It just reminds me of the wiseman in my life who would frequently remind me that he was “watching”, even at times he physically see me. I learned to manage myself differently via that “threat”. LOL. What can I say, he was 6’7″ and BIG! LOLOL

    Hey Mel, very well said. People come into our lives when they do for a reason. Some are in our lives for a short time, some stay longer. All relationships have meaning however short or casual they may be. If we listen and are open we can learn from all.
    It sinking in to this thick head of mine, I learn more about live and really everything in general when my mouth is closed, while my heart and ears are open.
    It is a great mystery to me. Why do we treat strangers better than we do our loved ones in so many instances? I know I have been just as guilty of this as anyone else. Can anyone explain this to me?
    Mel, I a very grateful that you are a long time person in my life.

    “People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
    When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person…

    “When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty; to provide you with guidance and support; to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be.

    “Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.

    “What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

    “Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
    They may teach you something you have never done.
    They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
    Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.

    “LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons;
    things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
    Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person,
    and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.” Unknown

    Found it, though it’s a shortened version. The point is still there….people do come into our lives for”a season, a reason or a lifetime”, each has its gifts. Each provides us with wondrous things and opportunities.

    Carpe diem!!

    thank you Mel. Beautiful post. It reflects my thoughts and feelings perfectly. What could I add.
    Mel, I thank you for your ongoing support. Via the blog you entered my life just a few months after it’s very beginning. You have waded through my endless ramblings and have contributed so very much. Thank you
