Everything Changes

Take a step back today, and consider the facts of your life. Are there things you need to say to the ones you love? Go and say them, best as you can.

No need for them to be eloquent.

Don't think them out more than necessary. This won't be graded. Imperfect? Awkward, stumbling, trailing off .... to begin again?

Let them be all those things, but let them be present. Put them out there, let them vibrate between you and the person you tell them to. Let them take root.

The words of love, of appreciation, of compassion and of support that you do not say are the ones that people most need to hear.

I agree...I try to make it a point to say the things that I need to say to my loved ones everyday! It is so easy to forget...We often dont think about how easy we could be gone in a min! Thanks! Here via Michele TTYL
