My life has been pretty busy and hectic lately and I fear I have been saying "I don't have time for that" way too much. What I fear most about my busy schedule, is that I am so focused on what is going on in my life (centre of the universe syndrome) that I am not paying attention to the needs of the people around me.
I was chatting with a friend the other day and asked a question about their life. This turned into a full out conversation about a pretty serious situation they were dealing with and I didn't know anything about it.
I normally think of myself as a considerate person but I don't think I have been acting this way lately. Its time for me to turn off the wedding to do list and pay attention to the people around me.
They are what matters, they are they ones who make those special moments special and I am not the only person in the world who needs someone to share their stories with.
After all, the reason I started writing this blog was because I needed to share my thoughts, feelings and ideas. I should do a better job of listening to others knowing first hand this is a need that I have.
