Today’s reflection topic is: Friends
My friends mean the world to me. When you’ve got no family around, those are your people, your family, at least for me. I have some of thee best friends anyone can have. Sometimes I wonder, how do they put up with me but they do and I love them for it. Thank you Thank You Thank You!!
This year has been a great year for friends. I have enjoyed new experiences with some of them and reconnected with some old friends. It’s been an awesome year for friends. I have also made new friends, which is always a plus.
I have to say, this is a year I have done the most. In the past, I mostly stayed home and occasionally went out for dinners/lunches/clubs with my friends but usually to the same old places. This year, one of my friends and I at least have made it a point to try out a new restaurant each time we decided to meet up for dinner or lunch. So, trying out new restaurants has been fun. We also tried out new clubs in different areas of Toronto, which has also been interesting. I’ve also went out and done other things like go to a baseball game and to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. It’s been interesting and I have really enjoyed enjoying new things. I feel like this year, I have truly enjoyed life and all these little things have definitely made me happier because for once, I felt like I was doing something with my life and not just sitting at home being lazy and unproductive. At least now, I am unproductive for a reason. lol. I am actually doing something.
As for reconnecting with old friends, it has been amazing to see/talk to someone you haven’t talked to or seen in ages and have it be like no time has passed. I love that feeling, like nothing has changed between the friendship even though lots of things have changed in between. These are the friends I know that even if we don’t talk for awhile, we can definitely pick up where ever we have left off and that’s just a beautiful thing.
I know some people think that if you haven’t spoken to someone in awhile then you are no longer friends but sometimes, it’s not so black and white and I still consider some friends of mine whom I haven’t spoken to in awhile to be a friend. Obviously, that’s not true for every friend, just the special ones =)
I don’t know what I would have done without my friends all my life. I have been fortunate to have finally found a great set of friends I can always count on no matter what. It hasn’t been easy finding these friends but I am very thankful to have them in my life.
Thank you for putting up with me and my straightforward, blunt and truthful self. I know it’s not always easy hearing the truth, trust me, I hate hearing it myself but if us friends don’t tell each other the truth, who will?
I love you guys!
