Take the time to stop and listen

time………… No one takes the time for anything anymore, everything is rush and I want it now. Family dinners? Nope a thing of the past now, as people don’t take the time to sit and eat anymore, well okay they are sitting at the drive-thru in their cars at the local burger joint. Family dinners had a whole different meaning back in the day, it was time for the family to bond and come together, to help build that strong foundation moving forward, it’s the family bond that gives you the strength and confidence to enter into a society of many and be successful. You always had family to lean on when things got a bit rough, they guided you, they gave good advice and always gave their unconditional love without blinking an eye. The family never judged and always supported no matter the circumstance, without family our paths through this journey of life, would be a lot rougher to walk, with a lot more scrapes and bruises, giving us more pain and hurt.

The only time you see a family sitting together for their dinner is on the television show Blue Bloods, I love that show and I love the family dinners.  In this society of broken homes and broken families, it is sad that the family dinners are a thing of the past, simply because it is these dinners, that bring us together instead of dividing us. As much as these so-called Politicians point the fingers at each other and say that the other is dividing us, it is the fast-paced society, the no more family dinners, and the broken homes that are dividing us greatly today. The problems of this society belong totally on each one of us, we are the problem and we are the solution to fixing the divide in this society and all we need to do is, stop, take the time and listen to everything that is around us.

Our forefathers are turning in their graves at the way we are screwing up this society, they worked hard setting things up and writing of the Declaration of Independence, so we of today could have it easier, instead we would rather get rid of the things in the past, simply because we would rather have our five minutes of fame, instead of doing it correctly.  I would hate to grow up in the household of some of these Politicians, as the pressure would be unbearable, there would be no proper discussions, simply because they would always end in an argument, just watch the Democratic debates and they will show you nothing but arguments and the attacking of one another. Don’t know about you but our current President is more Presidential than any one of these knuckleheads.

Time is precious but yet no one takes the time anymore, we are all so much in a hurry, that we don’t even know why we are hurrying? We get into our vehicles and want to do a hundred instead of doing the speed limit, while we are speeding down the roads, we then proceed to chat or text on our devices, then wonder why we are off the road in an accident? Everything needs to be done now and nobody has the patience to take their time and do it correctly. While we are always in a rush, we all have forgotten to hold ourselves accountable for our actions, we take no responsibility for anything anymore and always point the finger of blame, even when we are the ones to blame. All these issues simply stem from the no more family dinners anymore, so not only to bond with those closest to us but build that strong foundation as we enter into a society of many, you think those in society that we do not truly know, really care for what we do? They could care less and would think nothing but to step all over you when you fall, as all this goes back to the no family dinners, for any of us to truly chat and have a good conversation, to not just chat, but too truly communicate properly with all those around you. We all walk a path through this journey of life and unless we do it correctly, the journey will be rough on us all, with no peace and happiness so we can simply stop, take the time and truly listen to all that is around us.

 

” When you take the time to listen and learn all that is around, you will notice things you normally would not notice”

” Family dinners are the key to all our happiness as we walk through this journey of life”

” Family is the strong bond that builds a strong foundation, so we can achieve all we can and be truly successful”

” Arguments don’t solve a thing, as a good discussion will help us all communicate better with each other”
