One of my colleagues from graduate school would always be available. If Dayra would say she was going to be at your house or call you, she would always follow thru with her commitment.
Yes! She would always show up.
Her level of commitment was remarkable and admirable.
I’ve lost contact with Dayra over the years yet she is much alive in my heart today.
Dayra is a dependable gal, a perfect role model.
I’ve never been 100% there for anyone, not even for myself.
Busyness, hardships, high fatigue level, and a fast-paced lifestyle are just few circumstances that may hinder the progress towards building community.
Today, I value existing ‘Dayras’ in my life. As a matter of fact, I want to be more like a ‘Dayra’ and nourish these relationships one day at a time.
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.”
2 Corinthians 9:6 NIV
Over the years, I’ve learned not only to prioritize but focus on what’s relevant in life. The relationship with God, others and self are paramount.
Taking time to nourish my relationship with God, family, friends and self on a daily basis takes commitment, energy and focus.
Waking up early in the morning, praying for courage and strength, and showing up in life also matters at the end of the day.
Are you ready to show up? I’m all in.
