Friendship is the biggest lesson in life… If we allow it, it can teach us how to love ourselves, empathize and overcome. The best friendships will nurture your soul, thereby enriching your character. Friends will see and cultivate purpose. What type of friend do you seek? If you’re looking for fulfillment, look no further. Here I am!
Have you ever fantasized of feeling we could one day share or feel the presence of an unknown love in the air? Have you ever felt the impact of unabashed affection leaving instant feelings of desire in ways we never expected? Feelings that are unmistakable yet we can’t explain ones that somehow find a place in our hearts. Imagine chemistry you’ve dreamed of all your life. Only imagine it with someone you’ve yet to meet. For all we know, that connection may just be me!
Our friendship will be full of smiles that touches every crevice of our being. Enhanced by the butterfly inducing joy that comes with the thought of one another. When the storm arrives, because our foundation will be one of courage, compassion, integrity and understanding, when it leaves it will have cleared our path.
Realizing that apologizing doesn’t always mean you’re wrong and the other person is right just that we value our friendship more than our ego. As such, I will be quick to listen and slow to blame.
Cultural and ethnic differences can cause concern for some but, for myself, it only creates a greater opportunity for a deeper, more meaningful friendship because it is my truest belief that differences such as these should enhance and enrich one’s quality of life.
The poem above is merely an instruction for us to open our minds and hearts to those friends we don’t yet know. So I’m asking you to give yourself permission to be surprised and in doing so, give me permission to explore the unique beauty that is your mind. In return I promise to honestly reveal all of me…. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed! So new friend, I’m waiting on you!
