Meditation for Saturday, February 19, 2011
With all of the errands, housework, deadlines, and other tasks that fill our day, sometimes we get wrapped up in ourselves. Chilling out for an hour here and there isn’t going to hurt anyone or anything. Chilling out with friends makes life fun, relaxing, and at times, rejuvenating.
Spending time with friends helps us grow.
Whether we are laughing over the latest blurbs from our toddlers mouths or gasping at the newest gossip, spending times with friends keeps us grounded and helps us grow.
I have a few close friends. When I get off the phone with a friend, or I am on the way home from a coffee night, I see things in a whole new perspective. Sometimes we dump on each other, but we always do our best to find the humor in situations and we wind up laughing over events going on in our lives.
When we discuss our problems or bounce ideas off of someone we trust, we get a completely different view-point. A lot of the time we are so encased in the dilemma or idea in our path, we rarely are able to think outside the box.
And there are times when we just need to sit and chat about the latest book we read, television show we watched or yoga class we attended. We may even need to let off some steam about a co-worker we fail to get along with.
That’s okay. It is important to have friends we trust in to tell all of the good stuff and the not so good.
Meditation: Spending time with my friends helps me to realize my potential.
