Nothing's perfect.

Odds are you're annoyed right now.

Disconnected from life in some way.

Annoyed about some random thing.

Disconnection left alone increases over time.

But to reconnect is hard.

Takes effort.

Takes love.

You can fight back against disconnection.

With open and honest communication.

It's not easy.

We're being pulled apart from one another every minute.

Maintaining connection is mission critical.

When you notice you're in disconnect, it's time to reconnect.

The hardest thing in the world is to be present all the time.

Connected to life all the time.

Being present with the human in front of you.

And it's the only way to simplify reconnection.

It's the only way to be present to what's really happening.

It's the only way to be present to your filters.

The filters through which your experience of being alive flows.

It's the first step towards feeling better.

Being present in mind, body, and soul.

Connection is the best medicine.

In a world where disconnection rules the day, presence is beautiful.

Reconnection is even more beautiful.

Because you choose it.

What's remarkable is not that we're all disconnected from one another.

It's that we can choose to reconnect at any time.


By looking at the human that's looking at you.

By looking into their eyes.

Smiling with your eyes.
