We all spend a lot of time texting and/or emailing people that we just don’t make as many phone calls as we used to. While it is nice to send and receive text messages and emails there is nothing quite like an actual conversation with an old friend. Even a simple call to a fellow sweepstakes lover is a good idea. You can introduce them to prizes on here. We are all so quick to send that text or send that email that we don’t consider dialing a phone number instead, hearing someone’s voice, and creating that real human connection.
When was the last time you called your parents? What about your old high school friends? How about the person you used to work with that you were really close with at one point? Do you have any brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, or nephews that you haven’t spoken with in a really long time? I know it’s late or even in the middle of the night, but maybe one or some of them live in different time zones. You live on the east coast and it is 1:00am but your cousin in California is probably still awake and would love to be surprised with a phone call. Perhaps you live in Oregon and it is 4:00am, your brother in Vermont is having his morning coffee and getting ready to extract some syrup from the maple trees he has on his farm property. Your best friend from middle school lives in Hawaii and he is six hours behind your east coast time zone. I am sure he would love to hear from you and catch up on everything that is going on with your families, work, and other important things going on in your lives. Text messages and emails are fine, but there is nothing like hearing someone’s voice and having a meaningful discussion with laughter and emotions.
