I feel as Human beings it is in our nature to need, no have to have connections.... just as our body needs fluids and nourishment to grow... so do we need the interactions and connections with others to learn and grow... both on the inside and outside...

I have had many friends online and offline.... most have come into my life for a short while to re-emerge just when I needed them... others have walked along beside me as I explored who I am... and a small few have been here all along reminding me of who I was and who I am BEcoming...

for me ALL connections are BLESSed gifts....


BLESSings allways
Deby

Connected has multiple meanings. I'm connected with some old friends--I've disconnected with others. Some come into my life at various times and we pick up where we left off. Facebook has allowed me to stay peripherally connected with my students of four years in a Waldorf School and to follow my son's adventures in France. I have reconnected with people that I had lost contact with from the internet and I have grown deeper friendships with some who I had a more distant relationship in the past. I stay connected with some people on SparkPeople, who I may never see, yet I feel that we are connected in a mutually supportive way. Positive connections are good, wherever you find them in our busy lives and in our decentralized world.

I've had the same 3 best friends since I was 9. Friendships are what get us through and they have been with me through it all.
Online though-people are less willing to actually want to stay connected so with that I see not much support. Love your friends. They are your lifeline.

Its weird how we stay connected like now when I am typing this I realize I am connected to you guys who I have never met only over this site. I wonder where this fits in. Maybe somewhere between loner and butterfly. I feel I am all three. Sometimes a loner sometimes inbetween and sometimes butterfly. Merry Christmas everyone hoping that that saying is good for you as these days some people don't. So maybe Merry Connectedness is better. Just a thought. Have a wonderful day everyone.

I was watching a brain fitness program today on PBS and they went through a long list of benefits for brain accuity, vitality, and quality of life...
Just from staying connected to significant others within your world. Even from just keeping up with old relationships and active in ones cummunity.
The physical differences and metal ability of same age, same weight, same race, same occupation... between the two extremes of one who is a home body loner and one who is a social butterfly was just staggering.

Failure- a stone on a path not the last one called success.
Planless gaol=a wish
Faithless dream=fleeting & amiss.
Progress-little to do with speed-much to do with direction.
Wiser to replace with better choices than to deny human nature-small smarter choice substitutions.
Purposely choose your thoughts-what you believe-you achieve-Be careful what you think

My wife and I have Thanksgiving with a group of people that have been sharing this day for 19 years. The faces change from year to year as people move away, relationships change and people come to visit. Some people we see often, some once a year, some every few years. It is always great to come together. It is easy let life's changes interfere with keeping in touch, but holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas are a great time to reconnect. I wish you all the best of health and warm friendship during this holiday season.

Human beings come together for many reasons. Yes we do have friends who stay with us for a long time. Then their are the people who come in for a shorter time. It is for own personal growth that people come into our lifes I am afraid the law of nature or what ever it is decides what the out come is and how long these wonderful connections last. We cannot force friendships they just are. Some people come to teach and sometimes we have to learn. I think all connections that are made are special even the ones that we struggle with I think we learn the most from them. I just focus on this very moment and what is happening now. We do have memories of wonderful people they are the ones that made an impacat so great that they will never be forgotten. For what ever reason that that may be. I look forward to all the wonderful relationships I will have in the future and also the ones that I connected with in my past. They are all important to me. Yes contact is important if you feel that desire strong eneough. To all the wonderful freindships.

Well said...
I have connected with friends by making appointments with them. That sounds crazy but I will schedule time like an appointment in my calendar. It works!

The Holiday season is a wonderful time to Reconnect with a friend.

Research shows that friendships not only enhance your life but also protect and improve your health. And studies show that the happiest people are those who have both good mental health and good social relationships.

Think about the relationships you have with people outside your family your friends, coworkers, neighbors, and others you have daily contact with. Who do you consider your friends? Would you like closer relationships with them, or to spend more time with them?

Friendships take time and tending the same way that your relationships with your family do, and it's natural to put our jobs and families ahead of our friends. But making time for people whom you connect with and can laugh with enriches your life. Keeping in touch whether by phone, e-mail, letters, or get-togethers is an essential part of staying close. Today's small change is to reconnect with a friend, perhaps someone you haven't seen or spoken to in longer than you had intended. Chances are good that your friend misses you, too, and will be delighted that you took the initiative to catch up.

Sometimes friends grow apart; as new friendships are made through circumstance or shared interests, others are lost. It may be that you and an old friend don't feel as though you have much in common anymore, or have too much going on in your lives to stay meaningfully connected. But if it is a relationship that's really important to you, you may want to talk to your friend about your relationship before you drift apart for good. Tell your friend how you feel and ask if there's a way to reconnect. There may also be something going on in your friend's life that has affected her something you don't know about. You won't know unless you ask.




God Bless,
Linda

Realize the power of thought. It is a gift from God.
Use it well.

This is the responsibility of thought - to choose wisely.
This is the power of thought - to create what is.
