Positive Quote: “The world is satisfied with words, few care to dive beneath the surface.” – Blaise Pascal
It has been longer than I would like since my last quote and posting. Life has been hectic to say the least. From my daughter starting her first year in college, to being an empty nester, to having an increasing workload in the office, and to working towards volunteering more for those issues I care deeply about.
It seems I forgot how much writing helped center me. I was gently reminded today that it has been awhile since my last blog.
I picked the above quote as it spoke to me in many levels. Reading it I think about how in most day to day interactions we connect with each other at the surface level, not always going deeper. There are people we do have deep connections with, yet for me, those are a much smaller number.
Someone wise once told me that you have to be vulnerable to make meaningful connections. How true I find that. Those times where I let myself be vulnerable are the times with people that I have truly connected with and while years and miles may pass, we can reconnect and have a strong relationship.
The quote also reminds me to dive more frequently. I don’t know if the person I did not take time to delve deeper with could have been a strong mentor or friend in life. I need to be more cognizant and look for those opportunities to take a deep dive.
What do you think of this quote?
Have a marvelous Wednesday.
