Have you ever been droning along in your daily grind, and said to yourself-
Gee, I need to press pause!
We have all been there, unless you have a magical ferry that pays all your bills for you, it’s an extremely common need in this busy life.
I know a lot of you out there can’t really afford to take an extended vacation, or even take a break at times. It really is important to do it, even if it’s only for a long weekend. You don’t even have to go anywhere far, to get that renewal your soul needs. Sometimes all you need, is to spend time with a good friend.
Recently I stopped and took a 3 day pause. I was stressed, pushing myself to achieve my dreams, as so many of us normally do! So I said to myself, you know what Natalie “You can’t be 100 percent when your running on empty”. So I booked some BFF therapy.
No matter what you could be going through, a good friend knows you best. You could be doing absolutely nothing, and still enjoy yourself. Lounging around chatting, grabbing coffee, watching a movie or listening to music that envokes a sense of whimsy or a good dose of nostalgia. Window shopping or even treating yourself to a retail treat. You deserve it, or why else do we work hard?
The thing I get back each and every time from my friend, is peace & a promise that there is someone, who loves you unconditionally. A real friend sees you in all your successes & flaws & still is proud to know you. I feel renewed whenever she’s beside me.
I don’t know if you have ever felt this, but the best payment I feel I recieve from her, is to make my het laugh, till she’s almost on the floor. My soul beams, to know I can still make her happy at times
When we make time for happiness a priority, it is the greatest emotional present to ourselves. When you come back, you feel refreshed and ready to focus on what is to come.
Yes at the end of my day, there is nothing more important to me than:
“The Smile of a friend”…
Love always 💋💙
