This last Saturday I had the great opportunity to spend the evening with my brother Casey and Peter Boyle. It was dinner and it was then watching some local MMA fights with KICK DOWN MMA 110. It was a lot of fun being able to be a part of a great event and a great night. But what I enjoyed the most was the time that I was able to spend with my brother and with Peter here is why:
- That when you spend time with people you get to hear things about their life that you might not hear if you are just passing through.
- That when you spend time with someone you get to know even more about them if you understand that you need to listen.
- That when you spend time with someone you might just experience something that you never thought you would. (Meeting Royce Gracie)
- That when you spend time with someone you see them enjoy life and share life with them.
But the problem is that most of us are so busy that we don’t take the time to really be with people. We are checking our phones, we are watching TV, we are on our IPADS, or we are just not paying attention to the people around us. Here is my challenge to you this week. SPEND TIME with someone, don’t do it with the TV on, don’t do it with your phone in your hand, and don’t do it just on your terms. SPEND TIME being with someone. So parents plan out time to SPEND TIME with your kids, if you are married SPEND TIME with your spouse, (Date your Mate, blog for another day.) and if you have people that you are just getting to know SPEND TIME getting to know them. By the way thanks Casey and Peter for spending time with me, it is much appreciated and I hope and pray that we get to SPEND more TIME.
