The First Five Minutes

Most of us meet people and after about a fifteen-minute conversation we quickly invite them into our lives. Be it for a friendship or an intimate relationship because we found a couple of things that we had in common with them.  There is that something about them  that makes us want to know more. 

Sometimes somewhere down the line we loose interest because there really wasn’t enough in common or we see a side of them that we hadn’t or chose not to see before. We see something that displeases us and we begin saying things like “I never saw that quality in them”, or  “I would have never thought they would behave like that”. 

Now, if you really look back on when  you first met them there were signs of who this person really was, or there was an off feeling that you had that you chose to ignore. You wanted to believe this person was who they appeared to be, and they should be in your life. 

The truth is when we first meet someone regardless of who they want us to think they are they will always show bits of their true self. If we listen and watch carefully the truth is never as undercover as they think it is. The signs of who a person is can be heard in their words and actions, as well as seen in their wardrobe, home, office, and even their car without even knowing it.  

We each are  always in someway telling or showing the truth about ourselves whether we are trying to  hide it or not. It’s all about paying attention in that first five minutes. 

Are you paying attention to the first five minutes???

Love and blessings in divine order,
