This past week I went to Phoenix on business.
One of my friends from the Disney College Program lives in Phoenix, and this was my chance to see her again after a one-year hiatus.
I did see her in Vegas, but that was like a blur, and we were so busy I didn’t get to talk with her too much.
But not this time.
Despite living an hour away she drove to see me–how lucky am I? We went downtown to Phoenix and while we didn’t even do anything too crazy it was still so much fun to see her again.
We both have this dry sense of humor so around every turn there was yet another hilarious comment being made by either one of us.
It didn’t take long to slip back into our comfort zones. In fact, I was in my comfort zone the whole damn time.
As I walked around the city with her I got this odd feeling that this must be what life is all about. I used to be so shy, so secluded, and never made much effort to see my friends even when I was near them.
I’ve been blessed because I think I’m the only one of the infamous 2909 Disney group that’s been able to visit pretty much everyone over the past year.
My friend in Phoenix and my best friend in San Francisco have a hard time seeing anyone because the rest of us are on the East Coast. That’s definitely understandable.
What I’m trying to say is that I’m so thankful for that. I’ve wanted to put my friends higher on my priority list lately, and it’s nice to see that happening.
Our friends are everything. It’s not easy to find a great friend. Sure, meeting people is easy, but finding a friend that will do anything to see you? That’s rare.
That’s why we should ALWAYS make time to see our friends.
