Friendship multiples the good in life and divides the bad ~Baltasar Gracian
After all the work I didn’t do yesterday, I am playing massive catch-up today. And I’m regretting it. Half the office left. I can’t say I blame them, it’s such a gorgeous day. By the numbers that my blog is down this week, I’d say everyone is taking some sort of Spring Break or another. And here I sit trying not the be a hater. Trying. Frankly, at this point, I feel a little adrift, kind of like a desert island. And yeah, I know that feelings only going to last until 5PM when I’m out of here, me and “the posse” are going out for a girl’s night out. But still, the quiet echo of these hallowed halls has me pondering life and friendships.
Me and most of the posse, we grew up together. And whether you realize it or not, your friends have shaped who you are today too, even those friends who no longer qualify as your “inner circle.” Heck, I reckon, even those you now call enemy. They all left the fingerprints that shaped the very core of your being. Think about it, our childhood friends helped shape how and what we learned. The teenage friends were with us as we learned the social skills needed to carry on the romantic bonds that will sustain (or not) us for our lifetime. So why wouldn’t our adult friends also help form who we are in our adulthood? Friends are important in life, no man is an island and we should strive to have friends. Why? Because adults are happier, more well-adjusted emotionally, and close friends can even be an emotional lifeline at times. And yeah, friendship is a lot of work and brings misery at times too. At times you will have to say no to friends who disappoint, betray, or stress you but if it’s a true friendship slight disagreements along the road should only enrich the companionship more because you lived it together.
The take from? Sure, I am a little melancholy today, but I live with hope. I have high hope this weekend will be a special one, and I hope yours will be too. There is a Swedish proverb I want to give to you, it says, “fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Love more, and all good things will be yours.” I don’t know about you, but I plan on practicing a little of all of this the next three days.
