I learned a good lesson this weekend. As much as I am writing about connecting, I’m not doing a very good job of it. I depend too much on technology for my validation, and I’m not depending as much on personal connecting, despite my willingness, despite my thoughts on “paper,” despite how much I’m encouraging others to follow on the path of finding kindreds.
I’ve made some great strides forward in the past 9 months or so, but I’m not where I need or want to be.
In my way of thinking, the blog is cathartic, and it’s moving me away from depending so much on technology, but in order to move from theory to action on a more obvious trajectory, I have to become even more deliberate.
The fight is real. I have seriously thought, in the past 24 hours, that I am encouraging something that is meaningless. I have almost given up. But then I remembered that the fight is not against flesh and blood, and if there’s a way to be discouraged, I will be.
So I go on, if for no-one else but me. Society is much in need of more personal connecting, and I want to be a part of making a difference in that way. So I soldier on.
DAY 219 HOMEWORK: If you’re following the blog. take inventory about how you’re really doing. What personal connections have you made lately?
