life and death

I have had several conversations this week with a variety of people on the topic of transparency and accountability. While these people are not connected, the subject was singular – we need to be in relationships that keep us on track.

Today, I have been processing these talks this way: connection brings life. When we are close enough to people that they know how we are doing – really doing – we grow. Involvement in the lives of one another is one of the things that gives us life.

Isolation kills. Those of us who are not connected in meaningful and in-depth relationships are headed for trouble.

You have to be intentional on this. Most of us are too involved in our responsibilities to fall into these kinds of friendships. We have to go out of our way, we have to seek it out.

So, share and live.
