Having a best friend is Good News! Getting a best friend can be too. You see Humans, and Elves… are social creatures. We like to talk with people connect with people and be around, well, people. To that end, having a favorite person or even person’s is something we all need.
If you already have a best friend, then you know exactly what I mean. That person takes up some of the landscape in your world view. You value their thoughts and ideas. You appreciate them for who they are, how they see the word. Having a best friend is a balm in these times. I have friends but it has been years since I had a best friend. I miss them, not that they are gone simply out of touch. I have decided to try and reconnect with some of them. Even if we only share “Old Times” that’s ok. It will be a few steps on the way to making new friends. We could all use some new friends. Then there are the people who even when not around are still in your life. Those people who you just pick right back up with. So send a letter, not an Email, Make a phone call not a text message, send a silly girt. I recently got a bag of new socks in the mail.. sender unknown, after posting how I liked new socks, I know who it was but we all pretend otherwise. Feels good.
I make some new friends every year doing this challenge. I meet new Bloggers.. I tend to follow and comment on the blogs I enjoy. Ones that match my world view, share my humor, or simply enjoy the things I enjoy. Potential friends are all around you. People who want the same things you do, the same things we all do, a connection. Be safe, well and healthy!
"Whatever you do, don´t stop writing, write only for yourself if that´s what you want". It might sound as nothing, but in a time in which I doubted so much about myself, it meant the world for me.
