Just do it.


Today is a beautiful day. The air is crisp, the sun is shining. All is beautiful.

I just had lunch with four friends, some of whom had never met before. We had a wonderful time even though two of them were just on their lunch hour from work.
We've been talking about this for months and finally I just said, this is the date, hope you can make it and let it go at that. Except one of them, the other common friend, didn't know we were doing it so it was a big surprise for her. The reason? None, but I decided it was a great day to celebrate: The Day.

How often have you said "we'll have to get together" or "I need to call my friend and set up a lunch date" or whatever. I do it way too often. And the list of missed opportunities grows and grows along with guilty feelings, stress, aloneness and realization of how quickly the days are slipping by.

Well, today is The Day. Choose a date and a place. Call one friend and make plans. Call some more friends and invite them to meet you. You will be doing your friends a favor in helping them make new friends. You will all smile, laugh, share and de-stress while you celebrate The Day.

Happy Day to all my friends... hope to see you soon.

What day are you going to celebrate?
