It's Friday again and that means another "Five Minute Friday" with The Gypsy Mama! Five Minute Friday is where we write on a given topic for 5 minutes only, no editing, no worrying if it's "just right." It's so much fun--I invite you to try it! This week the topic is, "If You Met Me." Here goes:
If you met me I would try to get to know you. Because that's what I do best--know people. Really know them. Not just their likes or dislikes, interests and hobbies--but their souls. Because I love making real connections with people.
If you met me I would hope you found me interesting and engaging. I tend to ask lots of questions. Partly because I hate silences but mostly because I'm genuinely interested in hearing what you have to say. I love learning from others.
If you met me I would probably seem somewhat friendly and “normal” at first glance. I've gotten pretty good at making small talk over the years. But to really know me-that would take time. I protect my hurt, my pain, my deepest insecurities...and letting you into that world takes many moons. It requires that dance of sharing--trading bits and pieces of our hearts, our hurts, our wisdom and life lessons. Stepping in time to that beautiful waltz of human connection.
If you met me, I'd hope we'd get the chance to “dance” together someday.
Happy Friday Everyone!
