Challenge Myself: Day #73 Your Undivided Attention

Today is Day #73 of our Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today, give ten minutes of your time and undivided attention to each family member.

The book says,

Some days, it seems that everybody is clamoring for your attention. But when it comes to family members, it's important that you give it to them.

Ten minutes often is not enough to really get started talking, but it shows your loved ones that you care deeply about what troubles them and that you want to help.

Even if your help is just listening to them vent, do it.

You can always set aside another ten minutes to continue the discussion at a later time.

Consider the alternatives. Brushing them aside for more urgent matters sends the wrong signal.
Make time for loved ones before they leave your nest. Isn't it true that you are happiest when you know that they are happy too?

When all the kids were home making time was very hard to do. They have left the nest. It's just me, the hubby and our dog now.

Just For Today: Making time for the hubby is my top priority!

From the book: Live Happy
