what if tomorrow, the world ends? are you prepared? what would you do at that moment, on that very last seconds of life with your love ones? have you ever thought about it?
Honestly, I have never thought about it. Now that you have posted this question, I must confess that I would be very sad as many of my loved ones are in different parts of the world and it would be impossible to be in physical contact with them. So i would sit in front of my comp and get on skype and start calling all of them… letting them know how special they are and how much I am going to miss them.
what if we had 48 hours instead of 24? what would you do then?
It would be an instant reality check. All that is important would come into focus. I believe that for most of us our loved ones would come to mind. We would all drop our masks! We would say the things we really wanted to say to the people we wanted to say them to.
thanks for your feedback smart routines….you are absolutely correct! I would do the same… Spend more quality time with loved ones..and discover each other all over again….Life would be so beautiful then!
Hello sharondestiny, smartroutines and mokshtansdip(:
- I believe my hubby and I already start each day fresh every day…We seem to recognize the importance of this well. Though, I will look into ways for renewal.
- I’ve been married more than 1/2 of my life… that connection is longer (and stronger) than with anyone else, does not lessen the importance of other loved ones. Other meaningful people I’ve known that aren’t as connected to me as my spouse, I have desired nurturing-upkeep with them… ... miles/ years apart.. I of course value them very much. So yes…it’s time for better contact.
- I’ve begun focusing more on my relationship with God …While this is a Good thing(: .... just taking a moment now to contemplate these things (further) I will take things to a renewed level(:. Thanks for this good conversation(:
message for self care enthusiast: Hi and a big hello…. relationship with God is something I truly cherish and value. I must confess that there are times when I do drift away from God, but its for a very short span. I have this habit of spending atleast five mins everyday on my way back from work, kneeling before God and reaching out to God. I allow my mind to speak out in front of the alter and I put forward all my aspirations, apprehensions etc and leave it in God’s hands to manifest.
You are indeed a good example of a strong healthy marraige.. I really look up to you for this. I am just married for about an year and a half… and believ you me, I have had my share of tremendous adjustment issues and tolerance..only to realize that at the end of it all, bonding and attachment does come about with time…needless to mention the feeling of being connected to one another…I have along way to go to understand the mechanics of married life…hopefully all of you present in this community can throw some light…god bless!

- Heart-smiles to you(: My favorite subjects Prayer, God, Marriage and Health. /I love your routine of prayer on the way home from work, and letting go and …allowing… God(:
- Adjustments…are part of growth in a marriage.
- This came from “Livestrong” and posted on a thread(: I liked it..hope you do too(: Think of it as workable goals…if this moment feels challenging.
Some personal thoughts on marriage: You have many areas of relationship growth going on in marriage…the relationship you have with yourself…the one you have with your spouse, and then there is a relationship you have with what marriage means to you. And then of course there is hubby’s understanding of it ‘all’ too. Believe in good developments, and you will notice more of them… Just a thought…(: Sounds too simplistic…Maybe it is…Let me know if it serves you well(: I have also found writing to one another keeps things alive…when time challenges your efforts(: Much love and respect. Love Selfcare(:
“ Characteristics of a Healthy Intimate Relationship
The goal in an intimate relationship is to feel calm, centered and focused. The intimacy needs to be safe, supportive, respectful, nonpunitive and peaceful. You feel taken care of, wanted, unconditionally accepted and loved just for existing and being alive in a healthy intimate relationship. You feel part of something and not alone in such a relationship. You experience forgiving and being forgiven with little revenge or reminding of past offenses. You find yourself giving thanks for just being alive in this relationship. A healthy intimate relationship has a sense of directedness with plan and order. You experience being free to be who you are rather than who you think you need to be for the other. This relationship makes you free from the “paralysis of analysis” needing to analyze every minute detail of what goes on in it. An intimate relationship has its priorities in order, with people’s feelings and process of the relationship coming before things and money. A healthy intimate relationship encourages your personal growth and supports your individuality. This relationship does not result in you or your relationship partner becoming emotionally, physically or intellectually dependent on one another. An intimate relationship encourages the spiritual growth of both relationship partners and makes room for God in the relationship as a partner and friend”

Thank you ever so much for such a prompt reply.You are so accurate in pointing the various facets of marriage..the relationship spiral…the relationship with oneself after marriage, the relationship with one’s spouse and the relationship one has with the very concept of marriage.
I have been so very engrossed with my realm of thoughts, in fact to be precise, I have been very selfish in just thinking about myself and my feelings than really trying to understand my spouse’s thought process.
After reading your post I am seriously thinking on the lines of believing in good developments…and stop being the victim of negativity in my subconscious level.I am going to make a list of all the good qualities in my spouse and start doing positive affirmations for him and develop some positive affirmations for us..and lets see how things manifest.. in sheer unyielding faith and belief in good developments…
I willc ertainly keep you posted… I think God has blessed me with a mentor..i.e I ve found a mentor in you…
thank you. God bless you,
with abundant respect and love
