I spent the majority of my day in my office. My face was glued to the screen, my glasses were perched on my nose, my snacks were nearby, and my student assistants were chatting and laughing up front. I realized that I had little to nothing to post about or tweet about or snap to anyone or anything because I had just spent all day here - typing, scanning, scheduling, putting out fires, and igniting others.
The question that sometimes comes to mind, then, is . . . am I touching any lives today? Hardly anyone saw me, those that did may not have gotten quality time with me, and now that the day is almost over I am fairly exhausted and fear that I won't give to the few people (or maybe just one person) that I will interact with for the rest of the evening. I don't want to be so far removed from all and everything that I am unable to lend an ear when it is needed or share advice when is is requested. But, how do I do that? How do I make that happen in my life.
I would love to hear how you all carve out quality time in your lives. It could be how you do that at work, how you make it happen at home, or what you capture so have it in your intimate relationships. Share away - I'm all ears.
