True Friends

While on Twitter today I came across this article from Forbes: Types of Friends You Dont Need to Have

As I read the article I chuckled at a few of the types of friends Rogers listed but it actually hit home for me because not only do I have friends like this, unfortunately I may be one of them!!

I know many people complain that they are so busy, but seriously I am Busy!! I am not complaining though, my life is great and so many things are happening right now that I am so thankful for. Class Monday night, Tuesday night Thursday morning and soon Thursday night, adding onto that the work involved for those classes, plus household chores, the duties of being a stay at home mom, decorating projects and family time. PLUS planning a wedding and working on starting a business! I love doing each of these, but finding time to hang out with friends can be difficult. Therefore I may have become the "Flaky Friend".

My intentions are always good and I want to hang out very badly. The problem is things pile up and before I know it the "we should hang out next week" turns into next month...or sadly the month after. I think sometimes in life you have to have these realizations to make you understand the priorities in life. I also think that unlike when we were younger, its not about how the quantity of friends you have but the quality.

Although sometimes it is difficult to always get together, I know my true friends know that I love them and although I wish to hang out more often I just can't do it as much now. It also makes you make the most of the time you do spend with your friends, and sometimes helps you eliminate those people who you thought were your "friends" but they actually were not.

I can name quite a few of my friends that even though I do not see them every weekend or sometimes even every month we are able to catch up on the phone and when I do see them its like we never missed a beat!

I do agree with the article that if you are spending time looking at your "friends" on facebook to catch up on their lives you should instead use that time to actually catch up with your true friends in person.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and is able to spend some quality time with some quality friends/family!! :)

Music Video Monday! 9/5/11

I haven't written on here in a while! Well I am back and excited to post today's music video! :)

Today I am posting a music video for the amazing women in my life. I have been told many times how important your girlfriends are. I completely agree. Girlfriends are the people you can be silly with, cry with, encourage you and usually are able to relate with you about those stinking boys! :) I am very fortunate to have met some wonderful ladies in my life, but most of all I am so thankful for the women that are not only my girlfriends but also my family.

As you may have already noticed, I am extremely close to my Mom and also to my two fabulous older sisters. I have been truly blessed with having them in my life and being able to learn from each of them. They truly are my heroes. Today I am posting "Wind Beneath My Wings". This song speaks exactly how I feel about each of them. Everyday they teach me what beauty is, on the inside and out. They really are everything I wish I could be.

Mom, Kristy and Tessa: Thank you for all that you do. You each teach me strength, courage, beatuy and so much more. I thank God for each one of you!!

Happy Labor Day to everyone! I hope you all enjoy your day!! :)
