Spring is here, the weather is getting better and better, more beautiful day by day. One of my best friends came into town a few weekends ago and we spend a glorious sunny afternoon hiking the San Diego coast, otherwise known as Torrey Pines Reserve. Too often in life we forget about our everyday wonderfulness, like nature, and what is naturally found where we live. We even forget about the value of having a best friend, good relationships, and somebody who actually cares. It was so nice spending an afternoon talking about life, having someone to listen, who cares, and of course, enjoying the ambiance of the coast. It’s so comforting to know that I have at least one friend who will always be there for me, who has always been there for me, despite my downfalls and issues, and is always open to hear my story. It’s amazing that you can connect with some people with out even talking to them everyday, or seeing them everyday, or even regularly. Many of my good friends live out of my town, and yes, it’s hard to keep in touch and phone tag is something I do a lot. But it’s comforting to know I have support if and when I really need it. Usually for me it’s the opening up and being willing to ask for support where I fail, but I’m working on that. My friends mean the world to me. Thus far, I’ve realized that true, genuine, real, friends are hard, close to impossible, to find. But when you find the right people, you know, or at least, I know, and I do the best I can to keep them near and dear. It’s rare to find someone who will love you for you, and allow you to be you. I am lucky to have found friends like that, and I’m excited to meet more. I love you KK!!
“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship”
[Ralph Waldo Emerson]
One of my all time favorite Sex in the City episodes and quotes~
“Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate; without them what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course we wouldn’t fall in love or have babies or be who we are. After all, seasons change and so do cities, and people will come into your life and people will go, but it’s comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart and id you’re very lucky, a plane ride away”
