I recently came across a screenshot of a funny text conversation I had with my husband a few years ago. At the time, our kids were little (ages 6 and 2) and life was crazy. I had just started my own business and was neck-deep dealing with the challenges of working with a busy toddler at home.
Our text conversation that day put a smile on my harried face. I remember letting out a big belly laugh when I came up with those responses, because I’m notorious for replying with witty comeback lines waaaayyyy after the conversation has ended. (If you’re a Seinfeld fan, it’s just like George Costanza in The Comeback. LOL)
All these years later, it reminds me that technology – while it can be overwhelming at times – truly does keep us connected. It can be a lifeline to the outside world, when we’re feeling insulated and removed from it.
So, in the spirit of making someone’s day, do me a favour – send your significant other or friend a message telling them that you love/appreciate/are thinking of them (or something that will make them smile). You’ll never know how much it means to them.
They may even take a screenshot of it. 😉
