To connect is to have a relationship where a person, thing, or an idea is linked with something else. Connection is another key part of my life and something in which I value very much, as I’m sure many of you can relate to. My time with family and friends is invaluable to me. Beyond the people in my inner circle, I truly enjoy meeting new people, making a connection and getting to know more about them and their story. It can be humbling and an eye opening experience, where I have learned many life lessons from my interaction with others. Connection to nature, my community, my self, and my goals is an integral part of my life. When I am connected to these, I feel inspired and that I am living out the life of my dreams.
