Friendship Week

21 Feb

“A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.”-Phyllis Diller (b.1917); American actress, comedienne From Random Acts of Kindness

This week is friendship week. Reinvigorate your senses by tearing down fences.

There are so many different kinds of love and Friendship Week is a chance to focus on finding the friends that we love. It’s a time to thank those individuals who are, blissfully, as familiar to us as family, regardless of whether we’ve known them for a moment or forever.

Friends are brought to us in many ways and we can never be sure how long they are going to stay. So honor the spirit of friendship, and the love that is there by appreciating each beam of  joy they’ve heralded into our lives.

Find lots of neat observance ecards to send to your friends for free here. A great idea in addition to sending the egreetings is to bake a friend a yummy treat on Wednesday Feb. 23, to celebrate Banana Bread Day and then to make sure to give extra hugs out on Friday Feb. 25 in recognition of Cuddle Day.

 Another goal during friendship week: to attempt connections with all people to simulate the relationship bonds that have been effortlessly created between friends.

Mantra: “With friendliness in my heart, I will more mindfully approach those I may have otherwise felt hesitation (or an even more negative emotion: like frustration) towards. And I will smile. Yes, I will smile. ”

How can one find inspiration for these worldly successes? One place to look is in the exuberance of a toddler when enthralled by the enchantment of a friend. It is beautiful.

Thank you friends!
