This post is part of a series I’m doing based on this post.
What does the title of this mean to me? Nothing is really more important than the people we have around us! I know that when I’m having an off kind of day, I can call a friend to vent or even go out for some noodles (love me some noodles!!) and just chat… I know I end up on the other side of that friend time better than I had when it began =) I love feeling the ease and happiness that comes from having good times with friends. It always reminds me of how lucky I am to have them in my life!! It makes the troubles that I have/had not that big of a deal or problem anymore–I’m always able to attack any situation in a better state of mind after calming down from a dose of friend, haha. I know, totally sounds weird… but it’s true =)
To address the other part of the title… of course, having a job is important since I have bills and whathaveyou. But I’m just beginning to learn that more effort should be put into the priceless things/people in our lives… our efforts/energy should not be given mainly to our jobs!! What a waste… because y’know what? Your position and you (yes, YOU!) are absolutely and undoubtedly REPLACEABLE!! If you didn’t show up to work the next day or the day after or ever again, the company you work for may be in a bind by having to look for a replacement; but, at the end of the day, there’s many people out there looking to get hired and may have similar or even better skills to complete the tasks you completed–basically, you’re not really all that special… are ya?
When it comes to our family and friends, we, you, her, him are not so easily replaceable… actually, not at all! Each one of us is an individual with a unique combination of likes, dislikes, strengths, weaknesses, etc, that makes each one of us who we are!! Of course nobody is perfect, but sometimes it’s those imperfections that make us so friggin’ darn AWESOME!! =D I love all my friends!! I TRULY DO!! There may be times that I want to kick them in the shin (haha!), but there are PLENTY of other times that I want to turn to them and give em a big ‘o bear of a hug and a slobbery kiss on the cheek! Don’t worry, I don’t actually act upon those emotions, so calm down!!! I ain’t crazy… well, not that crazy… yet, haha! I’d like to think that I show love to my friends through my actions cause, to me, actions are WAY LOUDER than any words screamed from a cliff on the highest mountainside =) Friendship–definitely a love/hate relationship =)
Anyways… just remember that job/work is cool but people who ride this journey with us are the SUPER DUPER-EST!! I ❤ you guys!! =D
