“I would suggest we should give our friendships as much weight as our other most important relationships...the fact that friendships are voluntary is what makes them so special…”
-Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Jennifer Senior
Our lives are healthiest when we have a network of connections, and friends are a hugely important part of that network (along with family, connections to organizations with purpose and more). When coupled, we sometimes don’t make enough time for our individual friends.
That’s a loss for you and for your friends. So, I urge you to take a few minutes right now and think about your closest friends. Have you reached out to them lately? If not, I urge you to take the next 15 minutes or more to reach out with a touch – large or small. Or, if you can’t, put a reminder in your calendar to do so at a later time.
