Are you noticed, valued and loved?

Are you noticed, valued and loved?

05There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved ~ George Sand

So ideas for posts come from lots of different places.  Today, as I was doing my daily Twitter posts, I came across this question, “Are you noticed, are you valued, are you loved?”  When I read that quote that it really hit me how important those questions are and how much the answers really impact on a person’s happiness.

I know personally for me that those questions are hard ones to ask around the people in my life.  Well, not so much the questions, as the answers.  There are people in my life I really care about, people I would say love me, but they don’t notice or value me.  I think most of our acquaintances in life notice us, and value us to a degree but they don’t love us.

When I really sat down to think about it tonight, there are very few people in my life that I can say notice, value AND love me.  Hopefully you’ll fare a little better than I did when you take that inventory.  But how many really isn’t important, I think what’s really important is that you have someone in your life that in fact notices, values and loves you.  Even more important than that my friends, have you told that person/those people how much that means to you?  And who do you notice, value and love as well?

The hardest thing for me in answering these questions for me tonight is that recently I’ve lost someone who was a giant affirmative on all three questions, and for me as well.  Happily, she’d been telling me this my whole life and I made sure as often as possible to tell her the same.  That knowledge eases the loss a bit, but don’t wait my friends, if you have people who make you happy, let them know, it’s always later than you think and you don’t want that regret hanging over you.  Stay positive, be open and have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
