I met with my friend Lindsey yesterday and we had a great catch up session. I think it’s been 6+ months since we last talked (IRL). We always have so much to talk about and pick up right where we left off but what I love most about herΒ is that she is so positive and focused. Our conversation really got me thinking about life and friendships so today I’m sharing some quotes of friendship that really resonated with me.

I always knew this but as I continue to read about growth and goals and just live my life I know… it really matters the company you keep. I thoroughly believe:

“Be wary of the company you keep for they are a reflection of who you are, or who you want to be…”

As the years go by all of my friendships are about quality over quantity. It’s not that I don’t have a variety of friends. I have my best friends, my close girlfriends, my brothers (aka the guys I grew up with), my college friends, my work friends and acquaintances but it’s a small group that has become my family.

This quote is extreme but in the scope of the world my circle is small.Β Another hard lesson I’ve learned is who I can count on and who really cares. Most of my friendships that ended were because we’ve gone separate ways, not making the effort and moving from city to city but what I’ve discovered is:

As I get older and I’m now in a new area, it’s been a challenge to make friends in my area. I find that life and where I live hinders growing those friendships but I know that now I’m no longer willing to compromise who I spend my time with because really:

“Birds of a feather flock together so beware of the company you keep. Life has no rules that dictate that you have to be good friends with everyone – just respectful of them. You will either become like the persons you are closest to or they will become more like you.”

You know that Drake songΒ “No new friends,” I’m the opposite…”need new friends.” Taking applications. haha

Honestly, I’m writing this late in the day so this was more of a stream of consciousness piece. Sorry if it’s all over the place.
