Invest in Relationships

Creating Disney Magic Ep 465 Invest in Relationships

Don’t underestimate the power of a simple phone call or message. Reaching out and staying connected is essential, especially during challenging times. – Lee Cockerell

Teens and young adults are experiencing rising levels of anxiety and depression. Sometimes, changes come faster than they can comprehend. It is important that we take the time to invest in relationships and support those who may be struggling. Parents and individuals in the workforce need to dig deeper and engage in meaningful conversations so people of all ages feel supported.

It is bittersweet sending your kids off to college or saying goodbye when they move out. There is excitement for what is next in their life, yet also a little sadness knowing those daily interactions are changing. Jody just experienced this with his son leaving for college. There are a number of emotional challenges that come with these changes. That is why it is so important to find a way of maintaining relationships and staying connected with loved ones. Jody started a daily podcast, In the Front Row, to leave a message to his son every morning.

There are ways to find a silver lining in changes like this. For example, Jody used his expertise to start a daily podcast, In the Front Row, to stay connected with his son and provide guidance. This podcast is not just a way to connect with his son, but to share wisdom and advice. It is a great way to stay connected, despite the physical distance.

Relationships require effort and consistency. There are so many ways to use technology to maintain the connections we have with people. A simple call or a surprise package could make someone’s day, and even more so for those who might feel isolated. We often overlook the importance of emotional support and how much of a difference it can make to someone’s day.

Shared moments create a sense of security and love that is irreplaceable. When my son Daniel was younger, I prioritized family dinner. More recently I send sending articles to my grandchildren. It is a small act of thoughtfulness that serves as a gentle reminder that they are in my thoughts. The lesson here is simple – small, thoughtful actions can have a profound impact on our relationships.
