When we’re close to the things that mean something to us, we are connected to them.
Distractions, loss of focus of what matters make us disconnect and get us off track very easily.
Our homes, our relationships with family and friends and the food we eat all keep us grounded and give us a direct connection to what is close to us in our life. When we disconnect with these things we miss an important experiences.
Sometimes we refuse to connect because of a wall of fear we put up or an ignorance to what could be important if we gave it a chance.
Sometimes we even forget the reasons why we work – the reasons that drive us to do what we do, not the latest television show or video game to come home to – but really break it down and think about what we do and why we do it. These connections to the things that make us who we are and give us life and make us feel alive, though simple as they may be are a part of us and make us who we really are as human beings. To be connected with simple pleasures and take an interest in what surrounds us and who surrounds us is life – our life.
Valentines day is everyday because its about love – only love; not chocolate and roses kind of love but real connecting love.
