I can’t believe it’s late Tuesday afternoon — this week is flying by already! Yesterday I went out to lunch, caught up with my friend Chidelia via Skype, and started a new tutoring job that I’m really excited about. This morning has been busy with yoga, errands, and writing time. My apologies for being a day late with this post!
This year I am doing “a year of Wooden” following the teachings of Coach John Wooden, and in particular his 7-Point Creed.
- January: Drink deeply from good books.
- February: Make friendship a fine art.
Last week, the challenge was to call up a friend on the phone to say hello or schedule a catch-up coffee date or lunch.
I connected with quite a few friends this past week, old and new, in a variety of communication forms — phone, email, and in person. It was simply wonderful. I feel so rejuvenated and happy when I make time to connect with my friends. I love catching up, sharing stories from our lives, and laughing together. I always want my friends to know how grateful I am to have their love and support in my life.
For this week’s challenge, in honor of Valentine’s Day, let’s bring back those elementary-school days of passing out valentines and candy hearts! Send valentines to your friends — cards, candy, glitter hearts, whatever floats your boat. The important thing is to let your friends know that you love them.
I’ll leave you with a quote I came across this week that made me smile:
Have a terrific rest of your Tuesday!
Questions of the evening:
- Do you generally give your friends valentines?
- What is your favorite elementary-school Valentine’s Day memory?
