“I believe that we were meant to live as social creatures, to reach out and bless each other’s lives.” – Richard Paul Evans
A couple days ago I received a text message from a good friend I have not spoken to for a couple years. Normally a message out of the blue would seem strange, but since it is the holiday season texts and calls out of the blue are normal and actually seem common. I took the example from my friend and reached out to a few others.
As the years go by we make friends, move, drift apart, become romantically involved, and just grow up. For whatever reason time goes by and we lose contact with friends that are important. As more time passes the phone becomes heavier to pick up and liking a picture on Facebook starts to feel like a justifiable equivalent. I assure you an actual conversation will reward you on a deeper level and the person on the other side of the phone call will be glad to hear from you.
Affirmation: I am important to my fellows and they would love to hear from me.
Call to action: Take advantage of the holidays and take an interest in those you haven’t spoken to in a while. Pick up your phone and call an old friend from the past.
