Ever since our class reunion this past weekend, I've been thinking about what a crappy job I do at staying in touch with people. Yes, our family is crazy busy with a million little things... but it makes me really sad that there are so many people I've just "lost." Even worse, many of those people live relatively close to me.
I pride myself at how well I manage email, how quickly I respond to people at work... but my personal email is turning into nothing but adverts and subscriptions. BORING. But why would I expect to RECEIVE emails if I rarely INITIATE them?
So here is my August resolution (I can have a resolution in August... I don't have to wait for New Year's, because I'm just cool that way!):
* I resolve to keep in contact with friends via email, via blog, whatever it takes. There's no excuse for me to go for more than a week without blogging.
* For my truly, close friends, I resolve to call at least once a week.
* For my friends who are separated by distance, I resolve to email at least once a month.
That should be a good start, don't you think?
What about you? Do you have a knack for staying in touch with your friends, old and new?
