Definitely my 4 sons right now. My 16 year old is acting out and frankly has everyone on edge and is consuming his parent’s time no energy. Today is a family care day and I will invest most of my energy in this direction. Tomorrow is another day and I will address it when it comes.
To those in need, to those who ask for, to those who are meant to be supported, all included.
I would like to offer support to my nieces. with there dreams and hopes in life.
Right now, it is to self. The warning signs are there, and it is time to reflect and refocus. The black dog has been scratching at the front door this week.
My husband lives with chronic pain, which limits what he is able to do in life. It is a huge loss, as we used to be very active and do a lot of travel, hiking, and exploring our beautiful state. Now he prefers to stay home, as almost every activity aggravates his back pain. I do support him lovingly and I know it makes a difference. However, sometimes it is a lonely road, for both of us.
To my step sister who underwent a partial mastectomy yesterday for breast cancer. I am keeping in contact with her and her husband .
I’d like to support my younger granddaughter more, but, as a tween, she feels hard to reach. 😐 I’d like to support my new cat Rudi better. To do that, I think I need to learn to accept ‘love bites,’ to which I’ve been having strong negative reactions 😐
I try to be supportive to anybody in any situation. Being there for each other makes life so much more pleasant for everybody.
Lately, I’ve been more of a recipient of support than a giver and I’m very thankful.
My family!!! As different members are at a times in their lives where they need some help.
I certainly have a lot of work to do in the area of asking for support from others. I also need to work on restraining myself from every little opportunity I see to support kids when they seem to be struggling. Growth happens during struggles. Too much or too little isn’t beneficial. I need to find the right balance.
I am fortunate to be a support for a few people. I am so grateful that I am able to do this. As for who else I might support, there seems to be so many friends and family members who are suffering. This question does bring up some guilt, that I am not as connected to some people as I should be. I am always here and available to offer some kind of support. Even if it’s just to listen.
I try to be aware of being present. My hope is that this offers support to others even if I am not aware of the effect. For me, this does not require young age or good health.
This is a good question for me. I don’t have a strong “helper” temperament, so this question prods me to open my eyes and heart for anyone in my life who might need a hand or an encouraging word.
Yesterday, Swami Rama’s goal for the day was: lovingly serve everyone. Since I do this practice and that one I feel like it’s a sign from the universe that I need to be more available. So today I’m going to open my eyes and heart and just lean in and maybe I’ll find that I need to help someone unexpected.
I am chronically ill and in pain, so I have to accept that I can’t help people in all the ways I want to. I can pray though, and I think this is something that is always helpful to do.
Helly, Prayer warriors are so very needed. I see prayer as planting seeds of loving energy in the lives of others. I found today’s quote an inspiring reminder of the power of prayer.
I’m sorry you are in pain, Helly. Are there ways that you might offer support to yourself? I think acceptance is something you are already doing for yourself. 🙂 Prayer might be another. When I was young I was fortunate to have a friend pay for us to go to a Reiki workshop to learn Reiki. I don’t know if it works, but I find it a comfort when I am ill, and as it doesn’t require much, it is something, like prayer, I can do for others. I hope you have a better day today, Helly. 🌺
Thank you Holly😊
Holly, I,too, took Reiki training several years ago and though I can’t physically offer reiki treatment to others any more, I can (with their permission) send Reiki energy from a distance and also I can do self-Reiki for my own emotional and physical well being.
That is wonderful! That makes me so happy that we have that in common! 😃
I will send you a Reiki healing tonight, Carol!
Thank you, Holly. It’s deeply appreciated.
The fortunate and the not so fortunate.
I will offer support to all.
As a matter of principle, I offer support to anyone who asks and to anyone who appears to be in need.
Everyone I meet whenever I can where I can. By t letting go of this self I think I am will help the world . This greedy, full of desires, blaming, worrying etc. self can be let go of constantly in the here and the now. I’m helping by letting go of consumption and consumerism.
my children. always:)
