And it is funny how it just so happens it was a year ago this past weekend that we saw each other. Ironic? I think so.
If you are not familiar with Teri, you must check out her blog! She is someone that inspires me, makes me laugh, reminds me that I am a great person just as I am. Truly a wonderful lady…Teri thanks for a wonderful time! I treasure our friendship!
Seeing Teri, and reflecting on life and how fast time has gone by since we last saw each other really made me think about friendships and life. Crazy how quickly time goes by sometimes. I never thought it would be this long till I got to hang out with Teri again. But then I got to thinking, when I was home for Lori’s wedding and got to see my best friends from high school, it has been years since I have seen some of them. I am talking like 4-5 years!!
I love my girls!
Crazy how life works.
So many people will come in and out of your life. Everyone is there for a reason, right? To teach you something? To help you with something? Or maybe to knock some sense into you?
As I get older, and focus on my life, I do find it harder to make friends. It is easy when I was in school to make friends, because you saw the same people over and over. You hung out while playing sports, or maybe did homework together. But when you are out in the real world, working, trying to be independent, it is really hard to make friends…especially when you work for yourself.
Anyone else notice this? Do you find it hard or easy to make friends as you get older?
I must admit this is one thing I love about blogging. It has allowed me…it has opened me up to people I would never have the opportunity to meet. There are so many friends I have made through this crazy world of the internet. I just want to say to everyone here – readers of my blog, fans on facebook, or my fellow twitters, and whether you are bloggers or not – that I appreciate your friendship. I know you may not always agree with my life… agree with my choices..but you respect me, help me, inspire me, as I respect you, help you, and inspire.
Love you all. Really. I know sometimes it can be hard to read a person through their blog…even videos, especially since many of us bloggers do not share everything about us. How could we expect you to “know” everything. But as I enjoyed this holiday weekend relaxing more than I normally do, I have been feeling good about life. All the unknown about it, because I got all of you. I got my friends to get me though this so called life.
So hear I am letting you all know I am happy. I am okay. I am looking forward to the future. I am ready to tackle the “unknowns” that are ahead of me, even though at times I am scared.
Are you ready to share it with me?
till next time,
