Friends — What We Need in Our Spaces and Our Lives

Today, I received a book I pre-ordered, written by someone I met, talked with several times, admire, support, give pep talks to, and follow. I am not sure if this means she is a friend, but I certainly hope so. Getting a book, with a handwritten sweet note in it, means so much. We can organize, create, innovate our homes and make our small spaces alive with color, personal touches and mementos of our lives. But without friends, it is just a movie, and a black and white one, at that. Friends are those who talk to you, not just post things on FB, or “like” something, or “comment”. They ask how you are. They notice things about you. They offer information they came across they thought you would like. Now, the field narrows. All these people are not friends. Find your friends and hang onto them, if you can. If they don’t want to talk, or notice, or offer, or listen….they are not friends and nothing you do can make them into friends.

My friend (hopefully), Precious L. Williams, wrote a few books, but Pitching for Profit is the most recent. I have seen her evolve over more than a year, and hope we continue to see each other evolve much longer. I also love her latest blog post, because to make a friend, you have to learn to talk to people and notice things.
