Does this image look familiar?
It should because it was the start of an idea I had last year to re connect with people. It then turned into a blog post entitled I LIED.
So,here I am again, Mid December and no Christmas letters have gone out...
and, truthfully, no guilt either. I have only planned to send one card this year. Yep, set your expectations so they are achievable... Hopefully, that goal gets a big check mark before the week is up.
I want to connect.
From last year's post I had great conversations with folks in person and virtually through FaceTime. What a pleasure it was speaking to people who I am connected to but had not CONNECTED WITH in awhile! We lunched. We sipped drinks in coffee shops. We lunched... We spoke over FaceTime and virtually sipped as well!
My goal for 2018 - to use social media to be ‘social able’. Again.
It still amazes me how it can be months before I talk with certain people and sometimes more!
It usually goes something like this...
" Omg, I haven't seen you in so long.."
"I know, we really should get together!"
"But I SEE ON SOCIAL MEDIA that you did this and that and went here and there."
"Yes, and you did that thing and the other thing."
Well, we really should do something and catch up FOR REAL."
"Yes, we should, okay I'll call you..."
"yeah, lets do something."
"okay. for sure."
and....nada. zilch. nothing. zero.
So here goes…
If you live in the fine City I do, lets have coffee, or a walk or maybe even lunch.
We pick a date and put it on the calendar, even if its months in advance.
If there is physical distance between us, we can Facetime, Zoom, or use another method of video conversation…I will drink tea on my end and you can have a coffee if you like.
I'm looking for a few people who want to get back to being sociable.
