Waiting For Retirement

I can't tell you the amount of people I've talked to who couldn't wait to retire. It didn't matter what profession they were in. They couldn't wait for it. BUT, when it happened; it drove them nuts! Why? They projected ALL of their hopes and dreams on that new period in their life. It's as if things would get better, on that magic day! What they forgot was that LIFE was happening as they were making plans. Rather than being in the moment, or in the present, they put their lives "on hold."

It's better to change that channel. Get up in the morning and say "Today is the first day of the rest of my life." If you're Christian, say "This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us be glad and rejoice in it."

Old habits die hard. This is a change in mindset. It will NOT happen overnight. You HAVE to be aware and committed to change. That's the only way it WILL happen. Be happy now!

It's About Fellowship!

When you're REALLY with a person, you KNOW them. In turn, you express sympathy to their feelings. Sympathy is not giving advice or offering a quick fix to something. It's about sharing their pain.

Sympathy meets fundamental human needs.  It's about the need to be understood, and to have your feelings validated. Every time you understand and affirm someone, you build fellowship (or trust).

In times of crisis and doubt, we need fellowship and support.
