Just Start the Conversation

Have you run into a friend and heard yourself say, “Hey, we should get together sometime!”
You run into them a year later.  “Yah, we should do that sometime.”
Years pass, and you know you would love to get to know them better, but you never do anything.
And more years pass.
It could be family.  It could be friends.  It could be like-minded side-hustlers or colleagues.
You just feel a connection and want to hang out.
The next time you sense this pull to connect, recognize that you were designed to live life in connection with others.
One of my favorite authors Dr. Henry Cloud, says “Our brain runs on three things: oxygen, glucose, and relationships.”
Our biology screams for connection, and we literally break down when we fail to honor this important facet of ourselves.
Here’s my suggestion: The next time you run into someone that you want to hang out with, just start the conversation.
“Hey, I’d love to get together sometime.  What days/times work for you?”
And, then, (if they also think it is a good idea) put something on the calendar–right then, if you can.
You can always move it later, but putting things that are important to you on the calendar is part of living your purpose.
Don’t go years without building relationships and seeing people you love.
 
Just start the conversation.
