An Ecosystem of Invitations

May be an image of text that says 'You're Invited.....'

I’d like to share something that I desire:

I want a new ecosystem of invitations — that is, a renewed flow of people inviting each other to do things. I need this. Maybe you do too.

We’re in this strange in-between place, aren’t we? We’re still in a pandemic, yet beyond the phase of lockdown. We’re beginning to connect again and establish new routines, but we’re also experiencing fatigue and a variety of physical, emotional, and social reactions that convey, “What on earth did we just go through?”

On the other side, we can be more social, but many of us have crossed that threshold to find ourselves precisely in a state of limited energy. And if we want to rev up our social life again — perhaps from nearly 0 to a more typical 60 — THAT takes energy. Some of us need connection to re-energize, but it takes energy to initiate that connection, especially if you’re starting anew.

Are you feeling this too?

I plan to invite people to do things. Meals, coffee, walks, time in parks, time playing games, and times going to fun events.

-And –

I’m deliberately encouraging people to invite me to do things. Meals, coffee, walks, time in parks, time playing games, and times going to fun events.

I am ready to build a new ecosystem of invitations together.
