The thing about time is that it’s not about how much of it you get, it’s what you do with it that matters most. It’s the old game of quality vs. quantity.  The concept of time is hard for me to grasp the last few years. This TED talk by Robert Waldinger left me feeling spent. I have to remember that some rules just don’t apply to everyone. Sometimes life presents physical limitations, and challenges, that disturb the natural order. In Mikey’s case, it was a serious auto-immune disease we didn’t know about.

I know my words feel a little disconnected, but they’ll come into focus once you watch this video. But before you go, thank you. Thank you for joining me in this space. Relationship is a relative term in this era where connections know no physical boundaries. And we, my friends who join me here every Thursday, we most certainly have a relationship that adds great meaning and value to my life. Thank you for your gift of time each week.

    But the study group was entirely male. Of course, that was the way things were at the time. But that doesn’t make it “gospel”.

    Yes, true, but I think there’s a part of human nature that is hardwired, regardless of gender.

    Jennifer – Wherever you are and whatever you share, I am always most happy to find you in my mailbox.

  • Angie

    Thanks for sharing the video clip. For me it comes at a meaningful time as we lost my father-in-law this week. The video is such a good reminder to pay attention to the relationships in our lives as they are really the most important things in life.

    You’re very welcome, Angie, and I’m sorry to hear about your father-in-law. Hugs to you and your family. xo-Jennie
