Does anyone ever check on you, to see how your journey in life is going? Do you have others who check on you from time to time? I call others to check on others, from time to time. If they pick up and chat, that is great. If, they do not pick up to chat, that is fine as well. I just call others to let him or her know that he or she is in my thoughts and prayers. I do not call anyone to sell anything. There are people that I do not call anymore who have used me and taken advantage of my kindness and I have had to set boundaries. Why do people not pick up the phone like they used to? Probably because people are tired of sales calls and tired of all the asking of donating this or that. I get it. There are days that I want my peace as well.
We are all on a journey. Some feel so alone in there journey and others are fine with their journey in life. Others do not want to get involved with the journey of others. I call others because I genuinely care and want to see what is going on in there life. Emails are fine and texts are fine but there is something wonderful about hearing someone's voice and hearing their tone over the phone. I can tell a lot about someone's tone that I can not tell over texting or emails. I would encourage others to reach out so others do not feel so alone. There are more people now than ever, who feel alone. Especially, the elderly and the ones who can not get out or are homebound from illness or just staying at home, out of fear that the media has brought about. I call one of my brothers, every day so he will know that he has someone who is thinking about him and cares about him. So, what happens, if you reach out to someone and he or she never calls you back? Well, at least you tried to show him or her that you cared and that you were reaching out because you were thinking of him or her. I wish more would do this but some do and some do not.
Some people's journey in life is very lonely. Some people have no one who checks on them from time to time or to let them know that he or she is being thought of. Imagine people who are bedridden or who can not get out or who just are afraid of calling others in fear of disturbing another person? I know what it is like to be bedridden and to have very few come by or call because we get so wrapped in our own lives, that sometimes we do not stop to think to check on others. I made many changes, after my issue with my back, and now healed, for the most part. Our journey is lonely when we feel like we have no one who stops by or calls us. This, I know very well. I got to see firsthand, what it felt like to have very few stop by to bring food or things that I needed. I had some, check on me but not many. When I was bedridden, I did have one family come visit me, all the way from Virginia. Clients of mine. The entire family gathered around my bed and prayed over me. This was so emotional for me and brought tears of happiness to my eyes, which touched my heart.
I tend to want to check on people now. To see how their life is going and to let them know that I care and to see how their journey in life is going. One day, when you or I get bedridden or sick or can not leave the house, we will have others who care about us and want to check on us. There are many in this world, who do not feel cared for or loved. Maybe you and I can be the one who makes the difference. This is your journey in life and how you guide your ship is certainly up to you and I.
My name is David Snell. How is your journey in life going? Do you feel alone in life? How is your journey going and do you have enough who reach out to you, who cares? If you do, I am happy for you. There are many who do not have enough who reach out to those who care about them. This could include family and friends.
