Today’s been a difficult day. I’m reminded of how important social connection is and how much it’s lacking in my life. I decided to come to one of my favorite places and as I sit here, I have a huge urge to climb into this tree and just sit as I watch the world go by. I should be at church right now, but it is only a reminder of just how little social connection I have since I’m new there and sit alone. I just couldn’t do it today. I’ve now lived in San Diego 7 1/2 months. It’s time for me to really get serious about meeting people here to spend time with. It’s time to step outside of my comfort zone.
