Awakenings are wonderful things…The day you truly see yourself for who and what you are, is an experience that is both so extremely personal an unrivaled by any other.
It lets you see where you are, and compare that to where you want to be.
Then the planning and time come in…
I have been floating along, experiencing both challenges that I am not up for, and things that I have to take care of. Through it all, I have discovered things about myself and others…some that I’m not happy about, but that I need to realise and understand.
I count on others to build me up, to tell me when I am doing things right…sometimes to tell me when I’m suceeding…BUT…while I want someone to love me a certain way, sometimes that can’t be. That doesn’t mean they don’t love me the best they can considering the circumstances.
EVERY person has an agenda…in all of their relationships, their work life and their personal life. At the very basis of it all, you are either the teacher or the student. Every acquaintance will be outgrown, and only true friendships and honest loves will remain.
A true friend will be there in the good times and the bad times….because in everybody’s life there are bad times. The only thing different, is the scale that it is measured on.
I belong to a Blackberry group….a group of women (and 1 man) who want to help each other reach a healthy happy point of living. We give each other pointers, and sometimes just have silly girl conversations. (both of which I LOVE!)
But the bottom line is, we are all Rambo…fighting our own wars…each war is personal…Mine will never completely mirror someone elses…but I need people who are going to be around for the good times as well as the bad times. I don’t need fair weather friends…
