then when i was in college, same deal. i made friends that i still hold dear to my heart, but we talk on facebook occasionally, but aren't involved in the day to day.
hair school. the same.
and now that i'm married, i want to spend most all of my time with brad. he naturally became my best friend as we got to know each other and then get married. and still after a year, i desire to be with him. to spend unfiltered quality time with him. i was telling my friend that i feel like you have to be wise in where you choose to spend your time. for example, if it is time away from brad, i want it to be time that i feel fulfilled and don't feel like i am wasting my time, when really i would rather be with him. and yes, friendships i desire and need. i am a girl, afterall.
what i don't need...is to be in the cool crowd. i don't need to be that girl that is always getting a text from one of her thirty best friends pulling her in thirty different directions. i don't need to be that girl that is too busy with my friends to be with brad. sure, i have a ton of friends, friends that i value and cherish. between working a ton, being in a relationship and wanting my husband to feel filled up with love---my time needs to be spent wisely. i need to be a good stewart of that time. it's up to me.
and one girl that never disappoints----is this girl.
monday night after a failed attempt to have a dinner with six, it ended up just being me and her. it was a random surprise and such an enjoyable night, she brings so much to my soul and i love her and her heart.
i feel like as women it's so easy to get sidetracked with drama, other people, gossip (dare i say it...), and it's easy to forget to focus on real relationships. and what really matters...
how do you keep it all in focus?
