Grateful for Friends
You ever had that friend? The one you divulge the fact that you want to be better at something or like me, just more disciplined. Listen, I hope you are not having friend remorse like me😩. I love my friends very dearly, and today I am truly grateful for friends that won’t allow you to take the easy way out.
This picture was taken on a retreat in Costa Rica a few years ago( that’s a Whole other piece). We had just driven into the mountains, and we’re overlooking dormant volcanos while the clouds passed in front of our eyes. See on the drive up I had envisioned taking this glorious picture. That turned out to be a bust ( I thought I was cute until I looked at the picture it was not vogue ready).In that moment when I was supposed to be enjoying this magical moment, I became frustrated and upset with myself. No matter how I tried to shake the emotion, I couldn’t. See what the camera reflected, was not what I had envisioned. I placed my shades on and got quiet.Wow, how uncomfortable I must have made my friends feel?
On the way down, we saw an asylum with a beautiful view. While everyone got out car, I decided to stay inside. See the reality of how I felt made tears roll down my face and I wanted that time to compose myself( I didn’t want the others to see me crying )
How about them, Friends☺️☺️. One of my friends came over to me and explained the value of seizing the moment.She encouraged me to take a picture to remember this space and how I overcame it. She understood that I would have felt more regret because I didn’t take the picture. Truthfully she was right! I am so glad I took her advice. The image is now my screen saver.
Today I am grateful for friends that will push you past your comfort zone. Friends that know your goals and refuse to let you give up. What are you thankful for today?
