Take Time to Make Time

20170103_193833We do not appreciate the fact that loved ones and/or acquaintances reach out to us in times of need.  We often-times find ourselves trying to make time for them.  On the surface, we all view time as seconds, minutes, hours, days, years, decades, and even centuries.  But there are lesser concepts of time that are more important.  They are moments in time in which we should expeditiously give such moments to those who seek it from us.  Whether we realize it or not, folks come to us for our valued input when minor advice is sought or outright dire-straits need to be relayed to us in hopes of acquiring potential subsequent remedies.  Incidentally, it just so happens that some of those moments are in times in which we ourselves are inundated with our own stressful circumstances.  These are the best times to cater to those who seek us out, as it may allow us to have hope in dealing with our own set of circumstances.  Sometimes we are legitimately preoccupied with work or personal situations, and make arrangements to follow-up later with those seeking our time.  Yet, we should be honest with ourselves and ask, “can I put my situation on hold for a moment to help someone else whose need is greater than my own?”.  Essentially, we should be honored that we are loved and respected enough that our family and/or friends take the time to reach out to us in times of need.  So…take time to make time in an effort to offer advice, or simply to bend-an-ear and allow someone to vent.  Moments of your time can make a huge difference to someone else—and to you.
