Thankful Friday 8.17.12
Friendships in adult life are lame.
The always-down-to-ride, got-your-back-no-matter-what type of relationships you have when you’re younger are rare as you grow up. Instead of sharing real emotional connections, someone’s considered a friend if you can hold a conversation and you fit into each others schedules. And because of this, people regularly fall in and out of friend status. Over the last couple of years, I’ve lost a couple of people I’ve considered great friends because they felt I no longer fit into their life.
Luckily, I have been able to compile a tight unit of people that I call family. We’re not all blood related, but that loyalty and bond are present. No matter how close or far we are from each other. I know those few extraordinary people will be there.
Someone I follow on Instagram posted this today:
Keep your circle tight. I’d rather have four quarters than 100 pennies.
I am little psycho when it comes to being loyal, so I agree with this statement 100%. With that said, this week I’m thankful for:
+ That unwavering group that make up my tight circle.
+ My supportive neighbors.
+ The sunny weather.
+ Urban Ore in Emeryville. I picked up A Tribe Called Quest’s Low End Theory LP for $1 today.
+ Surviving this week’s workouts. Dang, my body’s tired.
+ The 3X5 cards my parents got me for my birthday. They’re coming in handy as I figure out these two scripts that I’m working on.
+ Doc’s of the Bay for making scrumptious Black Bean Burgers for my dinner last night.
+ That my wife and I were able to finally catch the extremely entertaining and cute movie, SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
