Take Time to Nurture the Good Relationships

Susan Apolon, author of Touched by the Extraordinary, Book Two: Healing Stories of Love, Loss & Hope

Yes, it’s certainly worth your time, energy, and intentions to improve less-than-healthy relationships and to attract wonderful new people into your life. But don’t forget about the family members and friends who have been sources of joy and inspiration for you all along!  Be sure to give these relationships regular “maintenance.” Make a point to spend meaningful time with those you love. Don’t just go through the motions or put in face time—really connect on a heart-to-heart level!

Happiness can come only from embracing unconditional love as often as possible. Whether you give your spouse a hug and a kiss or reach out to a good friend you haven’t seen in awhile, you’ll let the other person know that they are important to you…something all of us need for a more meaningful and beautiful life!

If you use this current ‘slump’ as an opportunity to focus on attracting and cultivating good relationships, you might look back at it as one of the best times of your life—a period that was filled with positive growth and increasing joy.  Make a real effort to focus on loving feelings. The peace that follows will take you away from painful memories and fears that cloud your day-to-day existence. Find the unconditional love that has survived in your heart and you will be amazed at the new and joyful places it will lead you.
