That old saying, “Actions speak louder than words”.
Yup in every aspect of life.
These days with email, texting, facebook etc its so easy to email or send a message with no thought at all. Heck I’ve had times where I have replied without even having to think, my fingers just typed the message. All of these forms of communication, although they certainly have made our communication better, its also taken away the personality.
Perhaps there is irony in this blog post as it is a public blog post, however a blog is an outlet for expression – mine being photographic art.
Having a heart to heart with a good friend of mine, something she said I immediately related to and agreed with whole heartly. What she said was essentially this…, life is too short, I no longer take the relationships I have with family and friends I love for granted, I hold on tight and show them how much they mean to me and only have those people who truly matter in my life. As soon as she said it all I could say was, I know exactly what you mean.
How spending time with those we love means so much more than telling them whether in person or via technology, holding tight to our close family and friendships of those people who truly matter both to us but also us to them. Spending time and having relationships with people who share a mutual respect for each other and have similar ethics and morals.
Although I do keep in touch via bbm, texting, email etc with those people I love and care about, everything said to them I would tell and show them in person. Its these relationships that have benefitted from our various ways of technology!
Don’t ever take these loved ones for granted, you won’t know what you once had, until it is gone!
Actions do speak louder than words!
