Sometimes all we need is someone to come alongside us.
I call this kind of interaction authentic connection. It is a gift we give each other freely. It is focused and intentional, relaxed and attentive. Authentic connection is powerful. It changes us. It soothes and stimulates and grows us. For most people it provides a sense of belonging in an otherwise fast paced world.
When was the last time you experienced this? What was it like? Can you feel it in your body? Reach for it. Recall it. Feel it. Do you need more? Replenish it. Call that friend or sister, or brother, or neighbor and be. My guess is you will be grateful you did!
