And enjoying, and laughing and crying and hugging and touching.
A friend has just posted a video on Facebook highlighting something I have discussed before, but feel it needs saying again and again.
100’s+ “friends” on Facebook does not an embrace or belly-laugh or memory bank deposit make!
It should be a supplement to our friendships, not the soul source or mainstay of them.
I had a brilliant non-shopping, shopping day( yes that was deliberate) with a friend of mine yesterday and we laughed again at the days out we have had in the past with her sister; experiences I will recall with warmth and pleasure to the day I die. I want many, many more days like this; many more good memories to fall back on when things get tough.
Okay, we all have busy lives, but busy doing what?
Get your priorities right!
Get off your ass and get out to SEE your friends, your family, feel the air around you and pause long enough to let it sink in, re-charging your spirit with the joy it can be to be alive.
