Being connected has infinite interpretations the world over but one thing is for certain- whatever form it takes, it’s important. It’s important in the sense that being part of something, meaning something to someone or a link to somewhere places a marker in your memory; a coordinate which you can revisit to calibrate your memories, feelings and perspective.
Having managed conversations and connections through various means with Africa, Japan, Abu Dhabi, Belgium and Glastonbury within about an hour this glorious Sunday morning I am reminded how being connected indicates to you that you matter and that connectedness is not only a physical entity but can be a practical, emotional and technological one too. The form doesn’t matter, the connectivity does.
At Albone Daniel we know that families matter, work better when they are connected in healthy, positive ways and when their connection to the world outside of their home is reciprocal in the things that matter to them both- when their values sit happily alongside each other.
Mulling over wise words that sum up how we feel about being connected working together, time and time again we reconnect with the inspiring research professor and author Brené Brown. She just hits home each and every time………
I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.
