Journal – Day 3

Well, I missed yesterday’s journal entry, but I’m going to be gentle with myself about that.

Continuing my work and thinking about love as I go about my day, this study popped up on my Twitter feed a week ago.

So I’ve decided to reach out to some of the men that have meant so much to me over the years, men who changed me for the better, men I love. And I started with a call to one of my dearest friends last night.

Let me start by admitting that I suck at distance relationships. I just can’t stay in touch for very long. But when I work up the courage to reconnect (my brain can berate me for weeks leading up to this – “Why didn’t you stay in touch, you loser?” “why do you think he’s care to hear from you? – brains suck), the intervening years just fade away, and sometimes it’s like no time has passed at all.

The call was wonderful. An hour passed like 5 minutes, and I was reminded of the love I feel for this wonderful human.

Life is short. Time is precious. It doesn’t matter how much time has passed; all you have is this moment. Call today.

May you be happy. May you be free from suffering. May you be at peace.
