I have been very busy lately identifying and creating my Natural State of Being.
It has been a process of observing people around me and deciding how they mirror me, what I really appreciate about them and what I see in them that is within me, that I am now ready to let go of.
During this process, I came up with “I am a good friend.” I feel as a rule I really am a good friend. I can be counted on to do what I say I will do; I am always honest, I am loving and I make sure I tell my friends I love them and I have many very old friendships.
I would like to remember birthdays and anniversarys more, send cards or letters more often and make more personal contact.
I had a conversation yesterday with a new friend, who made a comment I myself have felt for some time. I don’t remember the exact quote but it was something along the lines of “People just don’t want to have meaningful relationships anymore.” I will say, there is a lot of truth to this.
As a Health and Wellness Coach, I have been providing a thought to my clients – “If you are looking for your ideal mate, or job or relationship, make the time to sit and create a list of all of the qualities you would want that ideal person or situation to have. Once completed, begin the process of becoming that person yourself.”
I believe you cannot attract any person, situation or circumstance into your life unless you match it. Not only have I read this a zillion places, but I have tested it out personally.
The point is, if I am wanting deeper relationships, I have to become that way first. I have to make the investment in myself and in the relationships I already have, before I can draw towards me even richer ones.
So today, my heart is feeling so full of love as I take the next baby step to enriching a relationship, because I want to. I want my very sick friend to know regardless of what is going on in the world, I love her unconditionally and I am choosing to show up for her when she needs it most.
I am about to deliver a pot of FRESH homemade chicken, vegetable rice soup and it feels so good. I would like more time in my life that allows the freedom to do special things like this.
She doesn’t need to know anything about the conversation you and I have just had, but I know. I know the desire on my heart, I know it is authentic and I love who I am becoming.
What kind of friend are you?
