Social Calendar?

Do you have a social calendar?

Social calendar, you might ask... if you were me a few months ago and someone even mentioned you'd have the same face as I would and think what on earth is a social calendar?

I don't think I could have fathomed what a social calendar is, what it takes to have one or how on earth one gets one.

There's a calendar sitting on your wall... tells you what you are doing this month, Dr's appointments, children's vaccine schedule, dentists, work, activities for the girls and in that nothing else. Where is the social aspect of your calendar?

I am not talking play dates with the neighbours but hey if you are doing that at least you are getting some social interaction... I am saying where is the ballet, the opera, a play, when are you taking in an art exhibit, a movie or even a dinner date? And how many of those don't contain your your kids and your family?

I have my first art exhibit this month... I don't remember the last time I went to an art exhibit. I am ridiculously excited about going, it will be a date night for my husband and I but in a social setting that should be interesting and eclectic with an art crowd and art connoisseurs... how can that go wrong.

Though working has changed my perspective of the social calendar... I understanding the importance of it. Socialising is what keeps you current and important in your society... you can't continue m network with a group that doesn't grow. Life is about the people you meet and the interactions you have with the people in your life.

So it's time to get a hold on your social calendars... and don't make the same mistake I did, don't ignore that aspect of your life, it's important to nurture the social part of your psyche and the relations you have and want to continue to flourish.
