Redefining Intimacy

The other day I was explaining an idea I had to a friend of mine, who lives a gazillion miles away from me.  I realised verbally articulating it wasn’t working, so decided to take a screen-grab of a sketch I’d made of my concept and sent it to her. Waiting on her to marvel at my work of brilliance, I was taken aback when instead she exclaimed in hushed tones, “Is that what your handwriting looks like? I’ve never seen it before.”

Why I Love Courageous Conversations

Last night I got a call from a good friend of mine whom I hadn’t heard from in a bit. It was a super quick call  (less than 2 minutes long) but she wanted me to know she’d be in touch (properly) soon. Most of the conversation was her talking and me laughing loudly over her talking, because she knew me well enough to know that I was sulking at her non-communication. This call was a testament to how great a friend she is. You see, she knew she didn’t have to reach out but she did it anyway because she knew I’d appreciate it. It’s only when I hung up that I realized that if we hadn’t had a Courageous Conversation, this time last year, we probably wouldn’t still be friends today…
