Day 190 - Hello Friends.
Hello Friends. Thank you for reading today. Doesn't it feel like we need to slow down and thank more people in our lives? Especially friends. I'm talking about the old friends we have lost touch with and the new friends that are right around the corner. Both help us get though the day. If our lives are good they cheer us on. If our lives are falling apart, they hold our hand and guide us forward.
An old friend and I have set up a new routine. We are 3,000 miles away but for the last few weeks we pour ourselves a cup of tea or coffee. We then call each other to talk. She is one of my dearest friends. Wth distance and time, however, we have found ourselves talking only a few times a year. Although, the weekly calls are short, we have created and brought a new sense of support to our long life friendship.
I have to thank her today. She is an amazing person and my life wouldn't be the same without her. If I haven't said it before Ms. You Know Who, thank you for sticking by me when I couldn't stop complaining about life, supporting the endless crying when I was pregnant and coming to see me when things fell apart. You are brilliant, sweet and hands down one of the best people I know. I'm so lucky and grateful we are friends.
Today, pick someone you have lost touch with or a person you want to know better. Create a weekly time to talk, email or text. Chat about whatever is on the top of mind. Make it a point, however, to thank them for all the good stuff they have brought to your life. Call it a friend specific goodfinding mission today.
I'm going to guess you won't need to look far to say thank you. There are so many people that make our lives feel full and round. See you tomorrow friends!
