"Life is too short."
"You never seem to appreciate what you have until it's gone."
"Don't forget to say, 'I Love You'."
"Make the most of what you have now."
These saying remind us to do the things that matters most. The Great Resignation, and The Big Quit is a multi-million family movement toward better priorities that bond and unite this sacred union. The years 2020 and 2021 were marked by families who took a stand to do the things that matter most.
Yes, there has never been a more pressing time to make the most of family life. It's time to open the curtains and bring in the sunshine and fresh air in. Shower and be showered with love and natural affection. Build a stable family economy. Help heal old wounds.
Family heads have rediscovered the value of leading a simpler life where family is at the center, well being is essential and nurturing relationships is vital. "A focus on gaining and offering wisdom and spirituality to ones progeny is the real key to survival", says a long-time family man, Mark Askew. He continues, "taking the time to make good memories with loved ones, not only matters, but is the prime thing."
The big question is how?
1. Make the most of life's small milestones and celebrate them together.
2. Live a simpler life.
3. Reserve the best of your time for family.
4. Self-medicate by nurturing each other with love, affection and hope,
5. Schedule a weekly date night with your husband/wife.
6. Schedule specific days and hours as play dates with the kids and even grown children.
7. Regular family meals are essential to wholesome upbuilding conversation.
8. Take time to talk about the extended family and ways to support them.
9. Plan special events as a family and include something everyone will enjoy.
10. Plan an annual family reunion and share the love.
So when and how do you start planning these moments of nurturing? "There is no better time than the present." states Mark and his wife of 41 years, who have been making family a priority each day of their married lives. "Every Friday is date night for me and Brenda. I speak to my father and mother everyday and thank them for being who they are. I take time out weekly to engage in upbuilding, healing conversation with my adult son and daughter-in-law, sometimes for hours. I tells Brenda and show her I adore her throughout the day. We share very simple but meaningful moments constantly." Now that's living!
Mark, the author of "Fimark's Family Reunion Planner" adds, "I'm so glad to see that millions are coming around and seeing what living is all about. Focusing on those who set a good example with making the most of what they have now is key. By doing this I've learned to adopt a rock-solid set of family values including hope-building spirituality. These things will not only get you through the difficult times, but give you lasting, abiding, healing joy."
