Sitting in my office today, man how life changes. But as i sit here i ponder friendship and the art of being a good friend. No doubt it’s a difficult art to master.
I’ve had a few conversations lately with people who have been asking these questions and it’s really got me thinking...
How do you maintain friendships over years, miles and life change?
When do you let friendship fade into the space between who you once were and whom you’ve become?
How do you choose the friends you hold onto even when it’s difficult?
When you do you call out friends who are fading away and not being intentional like you wish they would?
And how do you know when you are the one failing at friendship and needing to apologize, pick up the baton and continue to journey through life with these people you value and can’t live without.
Ahhh... there is a slew of other questions but these are the ones that come to mind. And mainly i’m asking them of myself. How do i continue to master the art of friendship when life is flying by, kids are running around, jobs are demanding more time, and life in general is more demanding then ever. I refuse to be mediocre at friendships and want to work at being a true artist in this area of life.
Here are some guys i want to hold onto...
(even though a few of them have already slipped through the cracks)
