SHARE A SMILE
Evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship begins in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Those relationships appear to establish patterns of relating to others. Because of these inherent difference we are all unique and have to work consciously to make a relationship flourish. Achieving this is not easy and requires continued focus and attention. What makes this even harder is that you can only focus on one thing at a time. So, if you are going to do that one thing well, you need to give it your complete, undivided attention. When you sweep, sweep. When you sit, sit. When you walk, walk. This is the core of mindful living and the essence of mastering relationships with one another. There is always something happening. It is just a question of paying attention. Paying attention means being utterly mindful of what we are doing, and doing and attending to one thing at a time. Turn off the TV when you eat, and eat. Don't talk on the ‘phone when you drive or answer email. When you have a conversation with a person -- any person -- attend to them as if they are the most important person in the world! Chop Wood, Carry Water means to always be present and engaged.
