#WEverb14: Rebuild

Today's prompt is: REBUILDWhat do you plan to pick-up or rebuild this year?

This is something I've thought about a lot. When I was a teenager I was on the phone all the time, like on the phone until 3 am on a regular basis, but now that I'm in my late twenties, I avoid the phone. I spend my whole work day on the phone and answering email, so then when it comes time to do those things in my personal life, I simply don't want to. The consequences of that mean that my relationships with my very best friends are conducted sporadically and via social media. That's simply not good enough for the women who have been by my side throughout it all - high school, college, my wedding - nope, the occasional Facebook poke isn't enough.  So what I'm going to rebuild this year is my real life friendships. This means more calls, more emails, more face to face time with my friends, even if that takes some work.

I can't wait to hear about the projects that they are working on and the hot date they went on and whether or not they are planning to buy a house or have a baby - all this not from a Facebook post or from a photo on Instagram, but from them one on one.  This year, I'm going to be a better friend.What are you rebuilding?

Love and Bacon,
