But I Prefer It In Person

We are living unprecedented times where things just shifted.

We still need to keep social distancing and the way we live changed.

Many people are working from home.  Many people are buying houses virtually.

Many people are Zooming for therapy. Many people are doing their groceries with Instacart.

Some people welcome the shift to digital. They find it comfortable and convenient.

Some other people resist the digital world.  They need the physical contact. They may feel isolated.

Those are the ones that say “but I prefer it in person.”  Being a hugger, I can totally understand it.

However, at times like this, we make the choice to either welcome it or resist it.  It depends how we see it.

What if we welcome connecting with others, even if we are not with them in the same room?

For many years, I taught virtually for Kaplan University, and we held weekly seminars.

My students were always surprised to feel how connected we were, despite of being thousands of miles away.

We can be close to each other, from heart to heart.

Make that Whatsapp call; that Zoom meeting. Reach out to others today, and connect from your heart.

And, if you are able to visit with the other person, remember to keep social distance.  It’s for you.  It’s for them.

I wish you a beautiful day,
