If there’s anything this new decade has taught us so far, it is that people matter. Kindness matters. I’m adopting a new habit. It’s not perfect yet. I’m still working on it. If your name, your face, a memory of you flashes across my mind, I’ll take a second, reach out on whatever social media platform I can find you and say hey.
Too much time has been wasted not showing the people we care about how much we love them and wish them well. What’s the point really, if we can’t show up and be there for one another? I don’t have it all figured out yet. But I will keep trying.
So, if you haven’t heard from me in a while and you see a message from me out of nowhere, don’t panic. It’s all good. It means I was wondering about you and I wanted to reach out. It means that in my mind, I called your name, saw your face or heard your voice. It also means that I decided that all the time and space between us shouldn’t stop me from telling you that I care how you’re doing.
Is there someone who’s been on your mind lately? Tag them here and say hey. It’s a good place to start.
