This is one desire of the moment.
Just a consciousness that I ve let down some friends in the previous years.
A lot of excuses could probably be given.
Still , it will not remove the fact that a lot more could be better.
The last month in 2016 had me angry at an old friend who said a few hurtful words when I went visiting. Gist of which was that I was not a good friend.
I had been itching to point out that I was a better friend to her than she was to me… But , I ve not had a release to do that.
Then, I was flipping through my digital album and saw this photo and it stopped me in my tracks.
Truth is this 2 lovely friends of mine would probably be justified if they said I was not a very good friend. Both rallied round in support at the airport when I had excess luggage issues with the changed flights. I do not remember calling to say thank you afterwards when we all got back home.
But, it is not intentional.
The days just pass without my reaching out as I intended.
Then, I saw from a facebook post that a friend that I had wondered what he was up to had actually been in an accident several months back… and I did not know.
So, here goes…
If you used to be a friend of mine or are still a friend, please can you help me get better? How do you do it? Retain meaningful friendships even when things get hectic?
What one thing would you like me to do differently this year?
I will be waiting for your feedback.
Thank you and a beautiful 2017 to us all.
A toast to beautiful and enabling friendships in this new year.
