Family, Friendship, love, wisdom

A View of The World from Two 12 Year Olds

Today I am sitting here with my 12 year old daughter Sivanna and her friend Robyn. While I was thinking of what I would blog about today, I thought hey why don’t I ask these two wise ones some questions about life.

Question #1
What excites you about the thought of your future?
Sivanna: Finding somebody like a husband or partner and making a family together that’s full of love and stuff.
Robyn: Making her own family with her husband.

Question #2
What makes you feel good?
Robyn: Being with my friends and family.
Sivanna: When I take my probiotics because when I’m not feeling well it makes me feel better.

Question #3
What makes a good friend?
Robyn: When they are like there for you and they are not mean and you have fun with them!
Sivanna: They respect you and your opinions and feelings.

Well I think these were some wise and interesting comments. It sounds to me that health and happiness in life come from loving and enjoying the people in our lives and also by respecting the thoughts and feelings of other people. Thanks girls for your insight and for sharing today.

A Friend in Need

โ€œA friend is someone who is there for you when heโ€™d rather be anywhere elseโ€. Len Wein

This quote made me reflect on how wonderful it is in life to have support and how having a friend when you need one is so comforting. Then I got to thinking what about us? Are we there for ourselves when we need us to be? Do we treat ourselves like a best friend would or could? Or are we wanting to be anywhere else then loving, helping, and supporting ourselves?

Often times we understand the importance of caring for others but when it comes to ourselves it is not as easy.

What if we looked at ourselves as our own best friends? What if we encouraged ourselves and supported ourselves by seeing ourselves as our own best friend?

To my best friend, Me, I love you, I support you, I encourage you and you need to know that I will be here for you always. ๐Ÿ˜Š I may not always make the best choices but I will always hold you in the Love and Light that I know you are.

To all the best friends out there may you be the best you can be to your ME!
