Five Minute Friday when we write for five minutes on a word given to us each week by Lisa-Jo of Gypsy Mama. Our word for today is ...CONNECT.
I love people. I enjoy being around people.
There's something about making a connection with others that can be such a source of love, comfort and encouragement. Of course, there's always a risk of getting hurt. I see so many people who avoid relationships because of that fear.
But I've discovered that reaching out and connecting with others is well worth it.
My friends have been there for me through thick and thin. Most of my closest friends have been my friend for many years. They are life long connections.
I've discovered another way to connect with others. Blogging has opened up a whole new field of connections. This has come as a surprise to me. I find that I really care for my blogging friends and become invested in their lives and their concerns. I've even had the privilege of meeting many blogging friends in person. I've never been disappointed. Getting to know each one in advance through their writings on their blog have bridged that awkwardness that can happen at first meetings.
So my advice to you is ...connect.
Reach out to others.
Blessings and love,
