Many people ask me all the time, why I spend so much time and money and effort to #KeepInTouch
This week, I traveled to East TN to not only get my hair done, with a stylist I have got to know and grown to love, but to visit one of my closest friends since I was 19 years old, and I got to have lunch w another lady on the road there with a girl I have been friends with probably over 5 years, and same thing since both of them don’t live close, I make an effort to contact when I am going that way to visit and reconnect with and build our relationship.
Facebook and other social media, texting and emails are great! I am very thankful for wonderful technology that helps me to keep in touch easier.
But I still #Love and #Cherish actual #cards in the mail as well as #inperson or #BellyToBelly as they say.
Today, I got a phone call from a man that I hadn’t spoke to in probably 10 years. He is still on my Keep in Touch, #ChristmasCard list.
In our short catch up talk – not only did he want to re-check in about possibly using my cards service for his #personal and #professional life, but also with talking, it was funny, I mentioned remembering him last week, and told him why, and he said, I just read a book on that, was able to give me that information for a health issue I have had, and then he also mentioned his daughter just lost her husband, and so I was able to give some info that might be able to help her, since I have walked in those shoes.
It is really amazing, when you stop to listen, and build those relationships. It not only will greatly improve your life emotional, spiritually, physically, personally, but financially and professionally.
Who just came across your mind while reading this note? Reach out to them today, build that relationship…..if it is *tough*…..that is even more of a reason…..you are not promised tomorrow to do it, and your life will be better if you do it today. <3
