So there I am waiting for the kettle to boil and I got thinking, how immersed in our own lives we can become, so much so that we don’t notice when friends are down, or busy, or struggling because we are juggling so many things ourselves. True isn’t it…..
So then I thought ok I can’t just change overnight as I am still juggling many balls of my own, but I can change things in a small way. If a friend has a hospital appointment I can put it in my diary and call her on the day to see how things went. Instead of just writing a quick happy birthday on Facebook I can call my friend and wish them a great day in person. When walking down the street I can look people in the eye and smile connecting with them.
When you make work plans you put appointments in your diary and stick to them, we should look after ourselves in the same way, put a coffee date with a friend in the diary it is important to connect on a personal level.
