March 15 ~  Human Connections Criticism: You Are Not Your Drama

"Cherish your human connections: your relationships with friends and family." ~ Barbara Bush

Barbara Bush Take a minute to think about the most important people in your life...

Is there someone you love who you haven't connected with in awhile? Then take just a few minutes right now! Call, write, or email them. Send some flowers. Do something special.

As psychologist Jack Kornfield put it, "When we get too caught up in the busy-ness of the world we lose connection with one another and ourselves."

Are you that busy?

Insight comes when you slow down. Poet William Carlos Williams carried a notebook that said "Things I noticed today that I've missed until today."

Cherish your human connections. They hold the key to memories, feelings, thoughts, and understanding. "All that is worth cherishing begins in the heart, not the head," explained educator Suzanne Chapin. Look inside: how can you make a friend smile today?

Precious connections burst bright light into the heart. As politician John Hay observed, "Friends are the sunshine of life."

Philosopher Henry David Thoreau praised, "Friends... they cherish one another's hopes. They are kind to one another's dreams."

Reach out, connect, and watch what happens!
