Taking time to connect, That’s What Life Is All About!

Spending time with cherished friends that add value to our lives, encourage us, who demonstrate kindness, grace, and passion...this is what life is all about! 

I couldn’t believe it had been 1.5 years since I got together to share stories with my friend Julie. My crazy schedule has made it feel like trying to fit 50 lbs. into a 10 lb. sack!

Julie, on the other hand, knows how to make time for others and enjoy life.

She works hard but has an incredible gift to connect with everyone she meets. It seems like everywhere I go people know her and love her… I call her the Mayor. Even after a tragic loss of her husband a year and a half ago, she has an incredibly positive outlook on life and people. Now, this is the kind of person you want to hang with.

How about you? 

Do you make the effort to schedule time with friends that build you up and when you walk away you feel inspired and energized? 

Joel Osteen talks about the 2-minute people, 2-hour people, and 2-day people: 

  • 2-minute people are the ones that suck the life out of you with their negative attitude and drama, 
  • 2-day people are the ones that bring out the best in you and you walk away feeling optimistic and hopeful, 
  • 2-hour people includes everyone in between.

Let’s choose to be intentional about making time to connect with others, especially with those “2-day” people.

What do ya say? 

Do an inventory of those in your life and determine who you want to spend time with...then, get out that calendar, make that call, and send that text or email. Book it! 

That’s what life is all about!
