Connect the dots
Connect to people
Connect to your feelings
Connect to your beliefs
Connect to your past
To meet up
To join together
At first it seemed that this word didn’t carry much weight. It’s flippantly used to describe the most mundane events in our lives. Sure we try to connect to our feelings, to our pasts and to our inner child but mostly we just connect the dots and connect to the internet.
I experienced connection on significant levels over the past year: I’ve re-connected with a childhood best friend and neglected family members, and managed to strengthened some friendships that were suffering.
When something connects there is more than just a casual touch; there’s a linking, a fusing, a joining and there’s a commitment on both sides.
I think it’s fantastic that I’ve discovered the unswerving meaning of ‘to connect’ and I don’t even need a toy in my mouth.
