What Do I Wish to Make Time For

photo borrowed from the web

Maybe some of you would say I should wish to make time for keeping up with my blog... ;)
I do....I wish that; like so many of us, I wish I had time for all the things in my life that need doing, or that I want to do. It just seems so often that there's just not enough time for it all.
Jamie asks today "what do you wish to make time for".....Well Jamie, I'm glad you asked!

In my attempt to be honest with myself, authentic even, these past few weeks, I've noticed that very few of us are taking the time to listen, really hear what those around us are saying. We're not paying attention and living in the present moment.
And this disturbs me.

I sincerely wish to make time to listen, to be a friend....to do what I can to uplift those around me who need a bit of sunshine in their day.

And I wish that more of us would wake up and take the time.....

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

The art of listening is definitely needing attention all around ... listening to true self, listening to my body, listening to my child, my family and friends and feeling at the same time, heard. what a powerful wish! thank you for this reminder (excuse me, I'm too busy typing away to be listening ... oops!)

A lovely post--you are so right about listening. Deep listening is very hard to do, but that's when we really connect with someone else. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also.

Thank you for the supportive comment on my blog.

As Jennifer wishes for herself, I wish for her as well. Having someone in your life who really listens and understands what you are trying to say is a gift for both people.
