DIAMONDS, EMERALDS AND RUBIES..
You are who your friends are .. As I look around me I reflect I must be following the right paths In my life . My friends are every colour in the rainbow, beautiful and they shine like precious stones. I’ve collected a treasure chest that is priceless. They’ve all been positive influences on my life and I hope I’ve offered them the same.
I don’t buy into the thought that you must discard negative people from your life.. I guess because I have always thought “things can be fixed”.. extending just a little love and positivity to someone who is having problems or down, doesn’t take much on my part. Most people respond and some of those people are still my closest friends. I believe in Karma. We get back what we give in ten folds. Society is too quick these days to label and categorize things, what happened to .. just shooting from the heart? I nourish them, they will nourish me.. Isn’t that how its always worked?
Someone told me once, I had a problem, I was too much of a positive thinker. I think I laughed in his face! So that old proverb ..“tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are“..Yes, I’ll buy that. It will display entirely who YOU really are.
I don’t agree with this proverb either..“It Is Better To Be Alone, Than In The Wrong Company”. If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl. But, if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights“…. Again, I will not categorize, I refuse to do that. We are just people, travelling through. I have friends that howl, soar and crawl, I love them all. I’m not a saint but I certainly try not to judge or condemn.
I see my friends true colours and they add sparkle to my life.
