Life is a mystery…… I know that’s a Madonna lyric, but it’s so very true.
What do you do when the strongest person you know becomes the weakest?
When no matter what you do, it doesn’t seem to make a difference.
You stop, rest, breathe and lean a little on those who love you unconditionally. The strength of relationships comes to the fore, you learn who’s got your back and who hasn’t.
You know your tribe. They are always waiting in the wings to catch you when you fall, right you and give you that little nudge to keep going, one step at a time.
Trying times also bring people who care more than they let on under normal circumstances. The simple gesture of a phone call or message can make all the difference.
Family pulls together like in all times of crisis. Again, they’re always there, but not always present.
Once again, it just brings me to the point that you never know what someone else is going through. What is hidden behind their smile. We shouldn’t wait for something to go wrong to show people we care. There is no weakness in being kind, in fact it shows strength of character.
If more people were openly caring towards others, not just family or friends, but strangers too, the world would be a better place.
So please, smile at others, offer a hug, they mean so much. Listen to what people don’t say. Listen with your heart and eyes…..not just your ears. People won’t always tell you how they’re feeling, but if you look, they will show you.
Don’t do it just because I’ve asked……do it for you, it’s one of the best feelings in the world.
