The last week I've been blown away by all of the love and support I've received after my good friend journeyed to the other side.
It's unfortunate that it took an event like this to spark such connections. And I want to change that.
I was chatting with my friend Daniel about this the other day. Both of us are committing to being more proactive in reaching out to our friends, offering help, and creating space for people to come together and share their love and gifts.
Because why should we wait for tragedy to bring us together? Why not use this moment as an opportunity to change the way I relate to my friends and communities so that I don't need another wake up call like this?
I'm working with some friends who were closest with Max to launch a more formalized movement to do just that, under his father's blessing and leadership. More on that to come.
For now, what's one way you can commit to strengthening your relationship with your friends or community?
I'd love to hear your answer in the comments below.
