Dear Charlotte,: Connections

February 19, 2011 Leave a comment

Dear Charlotte,

In your first 14 months on this earth we have experienced many things together. I have learned a great deal from you and hopefully taught you a few things (sometimes at the dismay of your mother).  One of the lessons, I have learned from you is how you interact with others. Even though your mother and I are still changing your diapers, you have an amazing way of drawing others to you. Don’t stop doing this. The only person that works a room better than you is a politician.

I can only speculate on how you developed your skill of working a room, but I have discerned a few clues such as:

  1. You are not yet social inhibited
  2. You are just being yourself
  3. You have a genuine and very natural curiosity about others
  4. You are incredibly adorable and people are often drawn the physical appearance of others

Of course this is all speculation from observing you in social situations.

What you don’t yet understand is how important this skill is in life.  The ability to connect with people is imperative for success. You will need to make connections and get along with others in school, working, and in social settings. By doing so you will be increasing your opportunities to for professional advancement, meaningful relationships and friendships, chances to give back to your community, and the likelihood of living a meaningful life.
