it’s interesting that in an increasingly connected world, i manage to feel so disconnected. despite amazing advances in technology, i rarely make the time to reach out to the people in my life who aren’t omnipresent.
in talking with my friend ewan last week, he reminded me that i do think of people often, even though i don’t necessarily let them know it. but is that enough? i wish i had the time — no, more correctly, i wish i made the time — to connect.
i’ve had a lot of frustration in my life lately, most of it centering around my job, which has become more stressful for a mountain of reasons. sometimes, i let that stress get in the way of recognizing the incredible blessings in my life, including my family and friends, my puppy jake!, and the wonderful life paul and i have built together. it’s time to get back on track and remember those things, instead of the crap.
in my daily life, i think of so many wonderful people each day. a comment, a song, a billboard … who knows what may catch my attention and turn my thoughts to you. i hope each person reading this understands that in some way, you’ve contributed to the person i am today, and i’m grateful for that.
