I just ran across a note I made during a conversation with Trish about a year ago. It was May 19, 2010. We were discussing how to be open to friendship. It was such a great conversation I pulled out a note pad and started jotting things down.
Interestingly enough, these are still pertinent.
- It takes energy.
- You have to be doing things that give you energy in order to expend it in that way.
- We have to think, "What could we be doing to add to our lives?" as opposed to just waiting for something to happen.
- Be open to life by making the first response, "yes."
- Some experiences will disappoint, but you can't live in despair, regret or remorse. You have to believe the next experience has promise.
That last one is wise for multiple situations.
I'm fortunate to have such brilliant friends.
