I was just trying to figure out if I could relate to the man in my life who was trying to find out whether I had cancer or not.
We met for coffee in my neighborhood and I was sitting next to him on a park bench.
And he looked up and he said, “Well, I’m going to do it,” and he walked over to the park bench, sat down on it and started reading the newspaper.
And then he walked back and I started laughing because he said that.
And that’s the moment I knew I had to do something.
And I thought about it for about five minutes and I said, I’ve got to try this.
And it was a moment of realization that I could really relate to someone who didn’t have cancer.
And there are people in my family who don’t have a lot of time or energy to go through the same thing, but I was able to relate to him and he was able in a way that I didn’t think I could.
He’s a good person.
And the next thing I know, he’s sitting on a couch.
And we talked for about an hour and a half and I think it was like five minutes, and he says, “I love you.”
And I say, “That’s it, I love you,” and I walk out of there.
And you know, I had a very, very nice conversation with him, and I felt very grateful for that.
So, I think that’s probably one of the most important things I’ve learned in my career.
And maybe I didn, I don’t know.
But I’ve just always wanted to make the connection between people.
I think we all have a little bit of an inner circle that we know.
And when we connect, we feel like, you know?
And I think if you just feel that, you can connect with others.
So I try to keep that circle alive.
So, yeah, that’s what I did for a while.
And to me, that is one of my biggest passions.
And, you just have to try and keep your inner circle alive, keep it alive, and then you’re going to find something that is going to help you, to give you something that will help you and connect you with others that you don’t necessarily know.
So that’s my biggest passion, that inner circle.
