Tonight the husband and I spent the evening with a friend celebrating her birthday. There were a million reasons I could have come up with to not attend. Other things I ‘should’ have been doing. Cleaning. Writing. Resting. The list goes on.
I made a decision this year to be more intentional about showing up for people who show up for me. Instead of investing time and energy into dead-end friendships and connections I seek ways to support folks who are walking the same journey as me.
I had a great time tonight. I laughed until my face hurt. I shared my appreciation for my friend. I was fully present for her day.
As I work on this personal development I’m learning to not just capture and reflect on tasks. It’s the moments of true connection that I will hold with me forever.
