12/13/10: On the 12th day before Christmas my true love gave to me... FRIENDSHIP!For some reason today I've been exceptionally emotional, which so isn't my thing. I chatted with my Godson's mother and wow. We've been friends for over 15 years. We've grown together, apart, individually, and together again. We went from walking to the bus stop together every day in HS, to getting married around the same time, to moving around with our spouses, to now being settled in life and motherhood. We've evolved so much as individuals but have never lost our friendship. We are friends for life and that won't ever change. Friends are the sisters God forgot to give us.
The holiday time is upon us and like clock work there is a commercial on TV that plays Seasons of Love. I totally love this song. It takes me to another place and I get all gay over it. I had my Babe download the musical RENT on my Zune (mp3 player) just so I could sing along and cry with such excitement like the maniac that I am. I could just listen to this song over and over again. So I had to share it with yall. Listen to this YouTube clip compliments of OfficialSeanMatthews
I spoke with a girlfriend today and our discussion turned to relationships. We began to discuss what we (people) want vs. what you (people) accept. What makes us happy? How do we get our wants out of life without settling? This logic expands across a variety of subjects but ours was concentrated on relationships.
Are we settling if we put our wants on hold for someone else; or are we compromising? How does one determine what is a compromise and what is giving up on what you want?
Our discussion gave me pause and sent my mind racing all over the place. Nobody is perfect but do you settle for 8 out of 10? If so which 8 out of 10 do you go for? Do you marry 8 out of 10, or do you search for 9 out of 10 and hope you are lucky enough to find that 10 out of 10? In life we (people) tend to have this “grass is greener” type of mentality. As we get older we learn to realize that all that glitters isn’t exactly gold.
