Checking In

Dear Diary,

Checking in with the people you love is so important to me. At least once a week I try to send out thoughtful texts, check-in to see how people are doing, or I even make sure they know that I love them. I had a friend that passed away this past year and he would always be the friend to check in on everyone. He was such an amazing friend; so thoughtful, caring, and loving and I truly wish I would have appreciated it more back then. He has pushed me to become a better person to people every chance that I get. He taught me that checking in can go a long way. A simple text or call can make a big difference. I still have all of our old text messages and I revisit them sometimes. Til this day I wish I could get one more text message from him checking in on me.
