1 - excluding family and coworkers, I think there are fewer than five people I’ve seen more than once this year.
2 - I suppose that makes sense… Seeing friends requires a trip away from home and planning around everyone’s busy schedule. Being on the road, I typically like to stay home to see Marie and the kids when I’m not traveling. It takes an awful lot to get me into my car to go spend time with someone.
3 - speaking of travel.. I’m a flight or three away from making platinum status on American this year and I’m only a few months from lifetime platinum status with marriott. I think I travel too much.
4 - these past few weeks, I’ve felt particularly insulated and distant from friends. Often figuring I have nothing of interest to say, so I keep quiet. A pic here of there.. A random inane thought there.. Keeping much of what’s on my mind in my mind.
5 - coming to terms with change isn’t always easy. Maybe it’s realizing something about yourself isn’t as true as you might have hoped it was. Maybe it’s a relationship that changes on a dime that requires a new set of rules. Maybe it’s learning to let go of things that aren’t yours to keep hold of.
