Life isn’t always easy, filled with parties and great friends. Sometimes it means sitting alone and pondering your existence and that’s ok, too.
A lot of people I talk to have been wondering where all the good friends have gone lately. A childhood friend staying connected through social media but never really sharing their life anymore a new friend adding to your collection on Facebook but doesn’t bother making eye contact when you see them in person.
We are always connecting on some level, though. For instance, as a writer I am often writing articles on people and events, meeting new friends and then trying to ensure my article does their story justice. Then the article is printed and more connections are made. People comment on it, sending me positive feedback and having a conversation with me about it.
Not all connections or conversations lead to heart felt moments though we need to recognize when they do. Next time you go to the grocery store look the cashier in the eye, ask how they are doing and if they say they are tired, wish them energy for the rest of their shift.
Make conversation as you never know what will come from one moment of connection.
Tell me about the last time you met someone knew and found yourself eager to meet with them again.
Thanks for reading and connecting,
