I’m Thankful For: Quality Time & Quality Friends

I’m experiencing an abundance of joy and I do not know where to begin?

I work diligently towards my goals, but I forget to look around at the life that I am building.

Location was the pause I needed to see the love and light in my life.

Life is filled with beauty.

I realized on location that I have been searching for home and discovered that home is Los Angeles. I missed it in a way that I have never missed any place before.

My home is also among the friends that I have made in the past two years because they speak to my soul.

I haven’t always felt  warmth from friends like I do with my current group of friends. I often express love and gratitude to people in my life, with minimal reciprocation. There have been times in my life where I was taken for granted and have been disregard by “friends”. While I have an abundance of love in my heart, I can not give my love to people who don’t have the capacity to reciprocate the same level of love.

I have broken up with boyfriends for this reason, so why would I maintain less then balanced relationships? This discernment is needed for every relationship we have in our lives. Even if it means that we have one or two friends at the end of the day.

I am thankful today, for quality time spent with quality friends. It has been delightful to catch up with friends near and far. Phone calls, face time, texts and email plus dropping in with old friends when I visit home, I am thankful for genuine relationships. I’m thankful for the love that I continue to be show as I meditate on love itself.

Love – Stephanie
