Friends... we all have them.. and they mean different things to us on different days and in different situations. You know if your boyfriend breaks up with you, there is someone you call but it may not be the same person you call if you got a huge promotion at work. Of course, you have those friends who you must include when the party is ON! Whether it's loss, happiness, celebration or grief or an exercise partner... we have all kinds of different friends- and we NEED this! YOU need them ALL! They each serve you differently and some are a short term friendship but leave a lasting impression. Some you have known your whole life and they are like your favorite pair of slippers.. comfortable and reassuring. Embrace the fact that all the people you meet will not be lifetime friends but friends for a reason or a season.. enjoy the process, learn from it, cherish your memories and lessons. Move forward in life smarter and enjoy the ability to offer more of yourself in your own capacity as a friend! Go send a text, a written note, or call a friend who has been there for you for a reason, a season or a lifetime and tell them you appreciate them!
Yep- it is true- sometimes random things occur to me... like how important it is to be present in your own life. And also to thrive in your daily life- not just survive! So many people roll through their lives literally bummed out at what they find themselves immersed in. DANG- people get up out of your chair and happy dance! You are alive and can walk and talk and see and HEAR!! Your life is FULL of blessings if you will just see them as such. You can use your blessings and challenges to help others. Guess what? This fills your own cup when you pour into others! I know because I did that TWICE this week by helping and coaching two different people in their business- and one of them is in a competing company! Why? Because life is too damn short to only worry about yourself. And my personal quote- yes I wrote it- God opens doors for those who hold the door open for others! And I believe- if you can inspire one person to step into their greatness- you are a winner! Period. Get to stepping people!
Just a gal who believes with all her heart she has the power to help others live a life they deserve!
