Taking your Loved Ones for Granted?

by Laura Bonilla
Spiritual Coaching and Hypnotherapy 

Life is so short! However, how many times you find yourself arguing with the people you love? Resenting and expecting from the people you love? What if you knew that today will be the last day you get to see your loved one? Would you still argue? Would you still nag, raise your voice, be short, rude, impatient? 

I bet if you knew that today is the last day you get to see your loved one, whether that is a child, a partner, a parent, a sibling, you would be so much more loving, and forgiving, and patience! 

It is when you take them for granted that you are less than loving. It is when you don’t consider that life is short and ever changing. Nothing is permanent and we will not have our loved ones for long. Your children will leave your homes. Your parents most likely will depart the planet before you do. It is unknown to you if your partner or your friend will be around tomorrow. 

Why not treat your relatives, especially the ones you live with, with all the love, patience, and compassion? How about if you decide to be the Source of Love and Joy for them? How about if you choose to drop your own expectations of them and let them just be who they are? How about if you speak less and listen to them more, without judgment, with loving ears? 

Choose to focus on their blessings, their talents and gifts. Choose to be their best friend. Choose to be the one they can count on to support them, not to reprimand them. 

In this Thanksgiving season, give them thanks for being part of your life. Thank God for them. Appreciate them. Tell them why they are so important to you. Tell them why you love them. Choose to be the Love and Light in their lives.
