“Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.” – Rick Warren
Indeed, when it comes to this modern generation, the costliest thing available is someone’s time, energy and a listening ear. With technology taking over, we have forgotten the importance of sitting at a calm place, switch off our cell phones and take out time to listen to a few important people of your life. It doesn’t take a lot to make the best of your people feel loved, sometimes all they need is you to hear them out. They don’t expect solutions or you to help them find some but they want someone to make them feel wanted and understood.
When you read the above paragraph, you will feel it’s just expecting too much from someone but I think while you can quote someone to be important in your life, you thereby have an intangible commitment to be there for them whenever they need. It’s not expecting too much, it’s just human. There’s so much happening in our lives that we tend to go blind on the small joys of life or the most important people who have been there for you, who have made you a priority in their life and who have left no stone unturned to be there for you. Just reciprocating back is what is the need of every hour.
Reciprocation. This is one very important thing when it comes to making sure that everything finds a balance. You need to understand that like in real life, we need paths to run both way to help us travel, to help your mind and heart travel at peace, you need a two way path to run smooth. Love and harmony is no rocket science. It’s as simple as it could be. Right?
No one is asking you to leave everything or not care about the current happenings in your life. There just need to be slots in your life where everything is stacked up properly, like your wardrobe. These stacks have your important people, friends, work timing, family time, fun time, hobby time and sleep. Yes, when we think of our wardrobe, all we visualize is mess and so does our life appears like that. But what do we do with our wardrobes, we clean them, we organize them and we make sure things are in place to maintain positivity. Likewise, in simple words, do the same for your own life.
