All Relationships End

Parting of the ways happens in too many ways to count, yet they happen every day. Someone, once near and dear to us, is either no longer on this earth or is no longer in our life.

The message here isn’t intended to engender doom and gloom or to focus on regret; it’s more of a wake up call to get us to pay attention – to the relationships we currently have.

I believe we take too many of our relationships for granted, and don’t offer them the attention they need to stay alive while we’re all still living.

I think of the Harry Chapin song “Cats in the Cradle” – the essence of which has him too busy to pay attention to his son. Life got in the way of him spending the time, and then the relationship just slipped away.

Our relationships need the investment of our time and attention. If we have them in “set and forget” mode, it won’t be too long before they’ll forget about us.

Is there someone in your life right now that needs more of your attention? Lean in and let them know, otherwise you may have to watch them go – away!

Make it your mission to let someone special know that they’re special, today.

All the best,
