Pay Attention to What Matters

Pay Attention to What Matters

we love the moon for its beauty and its light during the dark of the night
… and some of us even appreciate that the moon remains present even when it’s not visible, it is still there
…. and it returns on schedule, and it shifts it’s position in a pattern that is predictable
…BUT reality is, most of us only think of the moon as that thing that gives us light at night

… SOMETHING WE DON’T ALWAYS REMEMBER IS that it gives the earth what it needs to sustain life by balancing out the currents of the oceans…

… it’s the currents of the ocean that regulate the “air condition” of our atmosphere
… and it’s the currents that allow life to live across the world…

… I’M SAYING THIS BECAUSE this is the same for the people in our lives who love us …
a lot of the time we appreciate what we SEE and forget the other things a person does for us that are not as visible but just as necessary …

… The way the touch of their body next to you at night allows you to get true rest …
the way their little daily habits comfort us and bring us peace (even the ones we think are annoying) … the way their hug or touch you eases the tension …
WHEN WE FORGET TO APPRECIATE these things, we are missing out on a great part of the love we could have

… the people with GREAT loves even mess this up sometimes …
because we allow the ego to get in the way …
and we worry what someone else has to think or say about our relationship
… or we just get frustrated because we focus on the things we don’t like,
and forget all the things we do like and love …
we never miss something that’s consistent until it’s not …
