Friendship Found But Not Lost

Do you have any close friendships where you don't keep in touch on a daily, weekly, or even monthly basis? 
Well, I have a few friendships like this where there may even be a year or more time between our contact.  It's amazing how all of that time can go by, but once we reconnect, it's as if no time ever passed. Of course there is lots to catch up on but what I mean is, there is the feeling that we haven't lost the deeper connection.
If you have a friendship like this, feel free to leave a comment and share. It's not an easy thing to explain but it's a beautiful thing to know that the spiritual connections remain regardless of time and space. Ironically, today I reconnected with a very close friend after a long time and it inspired me to post on this topic.
For all of my friends whom I share this special bond with, I love you and look forward to the next time we meet again.

Virtual Work

I just read an article on how working virtually can increase happiness.  I can attest to this because I have been doing it for a little over a year.  The ability to totally structure my days and weeks exactly how I want to has been awesome.  Working virtually can mean working from home, the patio, or cafes.  Technology has made it so much easier to do these days.  But it does take a lot of discipline because you can be just as much or even more distracted being outside of an office.  Settling into a routine, keeping a good calendar, and staying on task is key.
Here's an excerpt from the article...
Working virtually and flexibly are facts of life for many of us. For some it’s a blessing, for some a curse and for many it just is what it is–the way the world is going. For those of us who manage people virtually there are two questions: a) can working remotely make us happier, and 2) do the bean counters and policy makers care about our happiness so long as the work gets done?


I was surfing music videos on YouTube and found this video someone made of Natasha Bedingfield's song, "Unwritten".  I've heard it many times before but the lyrics stayed with me longer than normal.  The song really spoke to my heart so I've posted it here.  Check out the lyrics...

Drench yourself in words unspoken Live your life with arms wide open Today is where your book begins The rest is still unwritten
