The Magic Of Facetime
I want to start off tonight with a quote by Lawrence Katz, PhD, Professor in Neurobiology at Duke University. "The absence of human interaction is just deadly for the brain." I agree. When we talk to others face to face we find our brain works better and so does our life. If you are having trouble getting where you want to be in your life maybe it would be a good idea to slow down and have more face to face time with your people. Kings have their ministers. Presidents have their cabinets. Generals have their aids. Whether you are talking over the problems you face or not, just talking, that two way dialogue that keeps your brain alive, is going to help you make the right decisions and take the right actions you need. If there is any danger that you are slipping into a solitary lifestyle find ways to reach out. Let the energy of the magic that surrounds you help you go out to coffee, even talking to the waitress will help. Go ahead and attend the meetings you thought would be too much trouble. Call the friends you haven't seen for awhile and set up time to hang out with them. Solitude is good. Loneliness is not. Find a few more people to talk to. It will enrich your life. May the spark be with you.
