Sharing your lives – Friends are a must!
Having fun with friends is about sharing life together. On average, we spend 8 hours a day in the office! We spend 40 hours of our time for someone else just to get a paycheck at the end of the month! Everything else has to fit in 2 days, shopping, kids birthday parties, sports etc, The fact is, we all work too hard and no one has time for play! We have to make time! We will experience loneliness, burnout or even depression if we do not keep a healthy balance of work and play!
“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like, ‘What about lunch?’”
Making memories with friends
Because it is all about spending time with people we like, doing things we love together and sharing everyday moments is a must. Moments that turn into memories. I just went to a friend’s son’s 21st and it was so incredible looking at the slideshow of photos of all the memories we have made together over a decade! Looking back they are things that at the time seemed a little mundane but rather are treasured moments.
“It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Feel loved and included
Friendships take work but we have friends because we have a sense of longing and wanting to be included in something bigger than ourselves. Set aside time for your friends and work at it – put in the effort because it will be so rewarding! Plan day picnics or a girls night out! We need to listen to our friends and also to be heard! As my friends and I like to say, “we like to vent!” so chat and get things off your chest that is seems like no one else would understand. Furthermore, friends are the family you choose. They are people who you can feel safe with and just be. There is something so special about just knowing that you can pick up the phone and your friend will be there on the other side, ready to listen, ready to connect. Friends build you up and encourage you when you are down.
Long Distance Friendships
In this world, many of us have friends who now live a long distance from us but this doesn’t change the closeness we can feel. Many days weeks and months can pass without a conversation – BUT when we do connect – it honestly feels like it was yesterday since we last chatted. The conversation is comfortable and easy.
Sweetness in long time friends
Anyone who has had a special friendship that spans many years (dare I say decades) understands the depth and love within a relationship like this. It is like gold and something to treasure. People are what makes this world tick and turn. Celebrate and enjoy your people – your friends in this life. Love them well.
“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.”
Finally, what good is it to do something alone … grab that bucket list and get ticking with a friend? Take time out and plan something special! Make time and make memories! Live life to the full. I heard it said somewhere that no one on their death bed says they wish they spent more time in the office!
