Often, you fail to recognize the value of something or someone that is always near and available to you.
This may be due to your ego and selfishness, which can blind you to the importance of those around you.
Many individuals take their parents for granted when they are present, but later, when they encounter emotional pain or problems, they seek their parents’ support. Unfortunately, some people lose their parents, and they never have the opportunity to share any more moments with them, leading to a lifetime of regret.
Whether it is your parents, best friends, mentors, teachers, or masters, when they are always accessible to you, you may fail to embrace and appreciate their presence, even if you have no intention of avoiding them. This can occur because you become consumed with your business, worries, or habitual pleasures. When you focus solely on yourself, you may overlook the value of what your loved ones are offering you.
To become more aware and respectful of the things and people that are always available to you, you can start by practicing gratitude. Take time each day to reflect on the people and things that bring value to your life and express gratitude for them. This can help you to cultivate a greater sense of appreciation for what you have and prevent you from taking things for granted.
Begin by finding a quiet and comfortable space where you can sit undisturbed. Close your eyes and take a deep breath, imagining yourself breathing in calmness and clarity, and exhaling any tension or stress from your body.
Let your mind wander to the people and things that are always present in your life, yet often go unnoticed
Perhaps it’s your parents, your friends, your mentors, or even the simple pleasures that bring you joy. Take a moment to reflect on their value and the ways in which they enrich your life.
Notice any feelings of guilt or regret that may arise as you realize how often you’ve taken these people and things for granted. Remember, it’s natural to get caught up in your own worries and concerns, but it’s important to acknowledge the impact that this can have on those around you.
As you continue to focus on your breath, cultivate a sense of gratitude for the people and things that are always available to you. Take a few moments to offer thanks for their presence and the ways in which they contribute to your life.
Now, turn your attention to the present moment. Be fully present in your surroundings and notice the people and things that are currently around you. Take a few moments to observe their value and the ways in which they bring meaning to your life.
As you continue to practice mindfulness, allow yourself to shift your mindset towards greater appreciation and respect for those around you. Remember that every moment is precious, and every person and thing in your life has the potential to bring immense value and joy.
Finally, as you open your eyes and return to the present moment, commit to carrying this sense of gratitude and mindfulness with you throughout the day. Take time to acknowledge and appreciate the people and things that are always available to you, and never forget their immense value in your life.
The gratitude practices have been scientifically proven to have many benefits for mental and physical health, including increased happiness, reduced stress and depression, and improved relationships. Additionally, it might be helpful to encourage people to extend their gratitude beyond your close relationships and appreciate the people and things that they encounter in your daily life, such as service workers, nature, and even challenging situations that offer opportunities for growth.
May this practice leave you with a greater awareness of the importance of those around you and a deeper appreciation for the people and things that enrich your life.
