1. A personal item that one owns; a possession.
2. Acceptance as a natural member or part.
There is an aloneness, with that awful ache, so deep in the heart of everyone. The need for that ache to be gone and never to return again.
We all yearn for a sense of belonging, of being wanted and needed and loved.
I get that wonderful feeling of belonging every time I go to the gym. If the owners or workers are on duty, I can not pass within the door without a welcome greeting. When I leave, again they kindly wish me a good day before I walk out the door. But its not only them that make me feel as though I belong, its the people within that are there for the same reason I am. Like last night, after I changed my shoes and was headed towards the door, a gentleman that I don't even know, kindly spoke out, "Good evening". It caught me off guard at first and after I replied, I walked away with such a good feeling of belonging.
I yearn for that sense of belonging in most places I go. Knowing what that does for me, I feel the need to "pay-it-forward" wherever I am in life. I too, wish all of you and all I meet today a "Good day" "Good evening" or just a smile to let all know, they too BELONG right here, right now, right where they are at this moment in their lives.
Good day my Sparkfriends!
