I just ran across a note I made during a conversation with Trish about a year ago. It was May 19, 2010. We were discussing how to be open to friendship. It was such a great conversation I pulled out a note pad and started jotting things down.
Interestingly enough, these are still pertinent.
- It takes energy.
- You have to be doing things that give you energy in order to expend it in that way.
- We have to think, “What could we be doing to add to our lives?” as opposed to just waiting for something to happen.
- Be open to life by making the first response, “yes.”
- Some experiences will disappoint, but you can’t live in despair, regret or remorse. You have to believe the next experience has promise.
