Take a seat, make a friend
This video made me smile this morning. We are usually so busy running along in our own life, that we forget to slow down and really see the people around us.
If you took a seat now and made a friend, who would you meet?
Just like these strangers, I met two people yesterday. One I have known and been friends with for over two decades, the other one I just met one day ago. But we took a seat and over cups of tea, we talked. I actually ended up listening more and talking less but at the end of it, I knew where they stood and where I stood and we parted as friends with a better understanding of the things that drive each of us. It has been a very long time since I have reconnected with an old friend and really taken the time and slowed down enough to get to know a new person.
