My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.
~Henry Ford

Who comes to your mind when you think of the word friend? Some of you know many people, as far back to childhood, high school or have college buddies that are friends and keep up with them using social media. You’ve probably noticed using the internet just how easy it is to meet and make new friends and build relationships you may have not done so otherwise. Yes, technology has worked its way into our personal relationships, but do we really know what it means to be a friend?

Dictionary.com defines the word friend as

A person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard 

a person who gives assistance; patron; supporter

How many friends can you speak with openly, who are good listeners, and are there for you? These are the people who don’t get mad over nonsense and would never judge you. We’re not talking about those who do and then decide not be your friend anymore. Life is too short for that. We’re shining light on those who you can be yourself with no matter what, and agree to disagree. A true friend is someone who believes in you and you share feelings of mutual closeness with an uncanny amount of rapport and trust that only grows with time, nonstop understanding, and a trust between one another.
 
It’s not necessary to talk to them all the time and you may only keep in touch periodically. It could be a week, month or even a year later, but when you do reconnect it’s as if you had never stopped talking.  You have a special bond, a feeling inside that radiates positive energy, peace, excitement, joy, and love. True friends are one of life’s wonderful blessings. They are exceptionally rare, sacred, and a treasure to have.
 

Did you know that you already have a trusted friend who will never let you down?  One you can trust completely, one who will always keep your most precious secrets secret, and one who is literally on call 24-7. That’s pretty amazing, right?  Realize who your best friend really is.

 

You Are Your Own Best Friend.

Yes, Powerful YOU!

 

When you appreciate this friendship with yourself, you will be able to have the fullness in experiences with all of your “other” friends. This is because you have learned to find joy and contentment within yourself.  When you love and make friends with yourself, you find that you are not as demanding of others and feel disappointed by them. This is because you are meeting your own needs and not looking outside yourself for others to fill that void. You will realize you have everything you would ever want. You will discover that it is all within you.  By acknowledging your positive qualities, strengths, and shortcomings is how  to truly appreciate yourself.  Love yourself and become your own best friend.  Allow and accept yourself for who you are and realize that you are perfect (flaws and all) exactly the way you are.

Let today be the day you make a commitment to you by becoming your own best friend.  Be gentle with yourself. Show yourself grace and kindness because you really do matter.  Set aside quality time for you.

  • take a daily walk, start with 5 minutes
  • journal, even if it’s one sentence
  • clear your mind, by listening to music that relaxes you

It’s your choice, however something that you don’t already do now and it’s something that you really enjoy.

What could you do  now that will  enhance your friendship with you? Don’t worry about the past, or the future.  Enjoy the moment, let life flow by, becoming the friend who never lets you down.

It’s my pleasure to share a poem  being my own best friend.

 

Move Forward Today

Life goes by fast 

Don’t worry about the past 

Tranquility is close by 

Be still and listen for your why 

Take time for you now 

With patience you will find how

 Move forward with what you love each day

 Going within is the way 

As your mind wanders about 

Trust you can heal your doubt 

Sadness comes and goes 

Smile, buy yourself a beautiful rose

 When tears roll down your face 

Stop and give yourself some space 

Fear making a change and feel alone 

Today step out of your comfort zone 

The bigger the change, the bigger the test 

All is well, do your best 

Make a commitment to you. 

Something different each day new 

Happiness is your birthright 

Believe you are the shining light!
