Connected

Sometimes, especially after confrontations of difficulty, we choose to cut ourselves off and face troubles alone. Often times when we are lonely, we choose to stay in solitude rather than enjoy the presence of friends. In life, we occasionally become disconnected from those around us. Although I’ve only enjoyed 17 years on this life, I can say with confidence that the company of others is extremely important in multiple aspects. Every person you will meet will bring something new to the table. Try to befriend every person you anticipate can bring something positive to your life, and try to spread that positivity around in return.

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.

Stay connected to the things and people that help you, and eliminate the presence of anything that brings harm. In my blog post, Language, I’ve written about a similar idea. Communication and constant company can lead to relationships that improve your life in so many ways. It is hard to enjoy the unavoidable mundane occurrences in life when you are alone, but with the company of even one good friend, the most boring of moments can be transformed into something memorable and great. Seek the friendship of other great people, and always be willing to give as much as you receive. 

 

Stay connected.

Be a friend.

Be happy.
