There is nothing better than having great friends. Offline of course.
Today was a snow day for me and I got a chance to spend almost 3 hours talking to one of my best friends. Talking on the phone has become this mystical occurrence in my life and for more than just lack of time. We know that at 50 we have deep commitments and time crunches. But today my clients cancelled which meant I have the day off from my main gig.
My friend sent me a youtube and I replied in my usual sarcasm and instead of our usual text banter her called. I answered the phone , he said 2 world and I busted out laughing as he proceeded to chin check me for my sarcasm. Almost 3 hours later of deep conversations and ridiculous banter our phones hung up on us. The nerve of Iphone.
But I tell you what, it was the best medicine ever. I am blessed to have 20 and 30 year friendships and no matter how far we move apart from each other, the connection still remains.
These are the kind of friendships that lift up your soul and open your heart. They challenge your thinking, hold up the mirror to your faults and love you with few conditions. It’s so amazing to have just joy through friendships even when the honesty is so brutal that you sometimes want to cry. But that is what real friends are for.
Real friends hold you accountable and pull the best out of you. Get you some real friends.
