Life is also about having something, somewhere on someone to look forward to. That is the essence of relationships. Having something, somewhere or someone to look forward to not only gives purpose and meaning but also opens the door of the future to some joy.
The absence of something, somewhere or someone to look forward to, creates a void for sadness and misery to occupy. If you do have something, somewhere or someone to look forward to, the future simply looks brighter.
I think that one of the reasons that God created life was out of love and the second reason was to share the majesty of the universe. Sharing is caring and if you have someone to look forward to, you should also look forward to sharing things with them.
Life keeps us in a very busy cycle and also tends to keep us from sharing some of the things that we would have liked to because the moment has passed. Fear and self preservation guard us against making ourselves venerable or revealing our feelings about events, even to those who would never ridicule us or hold us in contempt.
There are however those who may be looking forward to you. There may be those who are looking forward to hearing from you, however little you may have to say or share. There may be those who may just want to hear the sound of your voice to make their day better. There may be those who want to share their day with you without reservation but could not reach you or like you , got caught up in the process called life.
This happens to friends, husbands and wives, parent and child, family and others. Imagine waking up together and leaving for work, no call during the day from your loved one and then you get home and you are both so exhausted, there is no energy left for intelligent meaningful conversation.
The point to the looking forward to someone, is that you have to make time to share. It does make a lot of sense that sharing is caring, because the more that you share, the more that you grow to care.
There may be some exceptions to the rule of sharing , of course but that applies to negative sharing.
Share your joy and make someone else happy. Share a joke and make someone else smile. It does not take that long. Share what you heard but not for the sake of gossip. Share something you witnessed with a loved one but not because you want to be the critic. Share your sorrows to relieve some burden and not because you want to make someone else sad or grant misery more company.
Share because sharing is caring. Send that text message to a friend or loved one during the day. Pick up the phone and call your partner just to say hello or to say something nice and make their day.
Wake up and remember to share your day. Hopefully it is a good day for you and a few good things to share.
