What brought me to write this post?
This weekend has been really special; two reasons: family and friends. Yesterday we had a video conference call with 11 friends from the choir where me and my wife met 19 years ago. Originally in Caracas, Venezuela, now we are all living in different countries around the world: Spain, Canada, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Italy. The call was crowded, without a common theme, noisy and chaotic but that didn’t matter because we were all together once again.
Today, we had another call, now with my family in law. Cousins, systers, brothers and father in law, nieces and nephews together, trying to reconnect to recreate virtually that special and unique bond that has tied us together for life.
What surprised me was to find in both conversations that we were able to immediately reconnect and find that something that has made our relationships unique, marvelous, irremplazable, and how this Pandemie has rushed us to do something together.
That has made me wonder:
- How many opportunities have we today to reconnect?
- How am I using our current situation to stay closer to family and friends?
What if …..
- I provoke those situations more often?
- I spend more quality time just knowing how they are experiencing this Pandemie?
- I embrace the joy that these calls brought to my family and friends? What would be possible?
My invitation is to spend quality time with your family and friends
Now that you know a little bit more about myself, I invite you to take a moment to look around, staying curious, being brave, spreading love to reflect about the following questions:
- What call do you need to make tonight?
- What special bond needs to be nurtured?
- What makes your family and friends two of nature’s masterpieces? What makes them so special?
Please stay at home, take a break to relax, keep yourself safe, and remember that:
We are incredibly better together, today more than ever!
