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.
