One of the reasons I love what I do is because I get to connect with people on a very deep level. If you’re reading this, we’ve perhaps had coffee together or shared in a meaningful conversation, made eye contact, smiled, listened, cried or laughed together. And that means something.
It’s the “you” I want to emphasize. You are connected to me in some way or another and I thank you for being a part of my life. For those whom I’ve advised in real estate or to those I’ve guided on the mat, thank you for entrusting me with your most intimate space.
As a modern world, we have lost the ability to connect to one another as humans and not just because of technology and all the digital interruptions throughout the day, but because of our inability to trust.
We spend more time on devices than eye to eye. We have become desensitized to touch. Eye contact seems foreign. Talking on the phone is uncomfortable and we have become so isolated from genuine heartfelt intimacy.
Unfortunately, we have been conditioned to be skeptical of everything and everyone. We are so driven by the ego that we run ourselves to the point of exhaustion or overwhelm and the stress and anxiety are making us sick. We have lost so many lives and people (kids) continue to take their own lives. It has to stop.
Let’s do things differently. Let’s remember what truly matters and connect in more intimate ways. Let’s make eye contact again and have more understanding and kindness. Let’s touch and hug and have real and meaningful conversations. Let’s try and be open to other points of view. Let’s be more present and live mindfully and with good intentions.
Hear me when I say this: We all have our gifts and we are all worthy of being seen and we’ve all endured our fair share of loss & heartache. Nobody gets a free ride in this world and so wherever you find yourself on this path, make it great. Live your best life. Call someone. Answer the phone. Have a meaningful conversation. Engage. Connect. Travel. Live simply. Love more. Be kind. Show up. Hold space. Get uncomfortable. Grow. Learn something new. Come alive again. The world needs you … now, more than ever.
