I met my friend Sri last week for lunch. We had a wonderful time catching up with life and family and changes. He knows I have a sweet tooth, so he bought me a large cinnamon bun for dessert. I split it and we both enjoyed this shared experience. Good friends are wonderful and make life a joy.
Some think life’s choices are about being right or wrong
I believe my choices are more about how life makes me feel
The love of another, the joy of a child, the compassion of a friend
Life is about that connection I feel when someone gets me and I them
That connection of interaction and validation beyond the superficial
A person can follow all the rules and “do things right”
and still be miserable, if that feeling of connection is missing
Life for me is about sharing the joy I feel with others
in spite of knowing some will never quite understand who I am
It is the appreciation that comes with kind affirmation
that renews and restores my confidence in myself
Life that is only about being right or wrong is a very cold life
For me, life is about feeling and loving deeply and caring for others
It is what makes my life worthwhile
