The hectic pace of our lives can make it difficult to remain connected to the things and the people that matter the most to us. We get wrapped up in our work or our busyness and connection falls by the wayside.
How have you created and/or sustained connections in your life this year?
I don’t necessarily like to admit that my introverted nature makes it easy for me to to not make effort.
I love the people in my life- I am finally to that place where the majority of people in my life…they are people that I welcome their voices, their thoughts, opinions, and chit chat.
I have cut out the majority of people that were only in my life to be emotional vampires and I feel like we are all incredibly symbiotic.
People in my life are like light bulbs and I hope that I am that to them too.
But, I prefer the scratch of my pen across paper, the clicking of my computer keys, and to tap out a text almost 90% of the time.
I measure my words now, I used to spill them as though I did not find them to be precious.
That has changed. So my interaction has limited dramatically.
I spend my time with my kiddos and occasionally answer the phone or go to coffee or lunch.
It makes the conversations sweeter, my words measured, and everything more valuable because I drink it all in more.
I do need to get back out there more- it is a goal of mine for 2015.
I have let the shutters close in around me quite a bit this year as I deal with things.
But I don’t mind, I like the quiet and solitude…funny because I always use to need loud, and people, and things to occupy me.
Not so much anymore, perhaps that’s the whole growing up thing.
