Connections matter

The longer I live on this earth, the more I realize connections with others is what life is all about.  It has been a few years now of many polarizing views throughout the country and world.  We really all are more alike than different.  Whether people want to admit it or not, we all just want to feel loved and appreciated.  We hope that our time here has purpose.  Each and every person is special.  Life is all about connection.  We need to step outside our comfort zone and be kind and lend a hand or a compliment.  When we do good, we feel good.  So when you wake up tomorrow please make a point to talk to people more.  Do a good deed.  Tell someone they have a great smile.  Call (not text) your friends and family just to say you love them.  Life is too short.

This is great advice! I use an app called CommuniqAI to make certain I keep in regular touch with those that are important to me.
