I am just back from a lovely weekend with my cousin in Prague…well, she actually isn’t a blood relative, but she and I agree that we are FAMILY. It started me thinking…sometimes family is a natural selection process, isn’t it? Those to whom we are drawn and with whom we have the most magical moments and synchronicities are like family-so shouldn’t they also be called family?
Perhaps it is time to rethink our definition of family. Part of having an authentic life is being present and actively participating in relationships. When we do this, the bonds are deep and lasting…and ultimately more meaningful to everyone involved.
This week, I challenge you to notice those to whom you are drawn; those people who cross your path as a synchronicity. Be alive and awake in your interactions. Genuinely care about them. Make an effort to add to their lives and it will add to yours ten-fold. That’s the kind of relationships I want in my life; what about you? Hey, you can never have enough family, right?
Do you have similar “family”? How do you nurture the relationship? Can’t wait to hear! Please share your thoughts below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
