Some things are meant to be. If that's true, then we must conclude, some things are not meant to be?
I met a delightful new friend, yesterday. I simply meandered down the road and noticed a gal out looking at a trailer for sale. I introduced myself and did a 30-second commercial on our trailer park.
We talked for over an hour, exchanged numbers, and vowed to stay connected whether or not she buys in our park.
I believe our encounter was meant to be.
I read a study recently (can't remember where but I swear I'm not making this up) that went something like this;
It was a 20 year study on how long these groups of 60-80 year old people lived and the study compared the following components (there were more healthy living components but these were the key ones)
- Never smoked
- Exercised regularly
- Ate well-balanced nutritious meals
- Strongly connected with family & friends
You can guess where I'm going with this. The group that stayed STRONGLY connected with family and friends lived the longest.
I encourage you to find your "meant to be" moment(s) today.
We were meant for community.
We were meant to be connected with others.
We were meant to be.
