dang. it's been awhile.
but here we go again...
imagine how much a seed needs to grow and thrive.
soil, sun, water, shade, protection from weeds.
all so that life happens.
truth be told: all of us are needy people.
and yes, i realize that none of us like to be called that word... needy.
but it's true.
we need to have our needs met so that we can expand and transform and Really. Live. Life.
all too often we dismiss, ignore or bury our needs.
and in the process we prevent ourselves from growing into who we are truly meant to be.
so let me say it so you really hear it... you are a needy person, and that is a good thing. it's important that you "own" your needs and find ways to meet them.
BUT THERE'S MORE!
it's not all about you. your story is full of relationships with others who have their own needs too. and to grow and thrive, they too must also have their needs met. and you play a part in the process.
it is crucial that you recognize, understand and help with the needs of those around you.
every moment, interaction and experience is an opportunity to better understand your needs AND the needs of others.
so i encourage you today, tomorrow and this week to embrace that truth...
to attempt to not only learn about your needs but to also explore and help meet the needs of the others in your life and story.
try it. i bet MORE life happens.
