Sometimes you just gotta pin me down…

So with our busy lives, it can sometimes be hard to fit your friends into your schedule. Sometimes it’s just a matter of timing. Conflicting work agendas or ongoing obligations can keep even the best of friends apart.

I must confess that I have been guilty of this more than once. But I have a solution to the problem: Just pin me down.

My good friend Carolyn inspired this idea. We’ve been trying to get together for many months, and I just couldn’t make it happen. So this morning I got a text that read, “Girls breakfast: Me, you, and Patsy. Saturday, February 2nd. What time is good?”

I love it! She took the proverbial bull by the horns. She pinned me down, and now we are finally having a meetup. You so rock, Carolyn!

So ask a friend out, but if you have to, pin her down! Quality time together is worth assertive action. And don’t forget…


Stay groovy…
