Continue to reach out


I'm sure some of you have been there. You put yourself out there, invite some people round, and no-one shows up. It's somehow embarrassing, but I know I'm not alone in this. In these busy days people's schedules fill up, things slip through the gaps. It's nothing personal.

But still.

That sort of thing stirs up old feelings of inadequacy, remembrance of bullying, and just a general feeling of being left out.

And so I pray.

And I'm reminded that those feelings have been dealt with. It really isn't personal. My word for the year - continue - is something I need to employ. Continue to reach out, because eventually you'll make a connection.

It's not easy.

It can be disheartening.

But we have to persevere to make face-to-face connections in this virtual-driven world.

  1. A wonderful post, and you're right, Tracy - it DOES happen to everyone. When we remember those who seem to have forgotten us, though, we are remembering that we are all connected through love.
