Last night, I went to dinner with some friends who I haven’t seen since the summer. We had a great time reminiscing about how much fun we had in years past. We laughed and recalled conversations. It was great! But it wasn’t awesome!
During dinner, my newest best friend of 2 years, texted me and said that she missed me. She sent me a picture of her hanging out without me. I texted her back and said that I was coming over. My dinner friends wanted to go bowling after dinner, but I wasn’t feeling it. I told them that I wasn’t going because I needed to take care of my best friend who was going through some stuff. (which is true)
While spending time with my best friend, my second best friend texted me and wanted to talk. It made me smile. I am a wanted woman! I sort of felt bad for ditching my summer friends to hang out with my newest friends. But once I thought about it, I realized that my circle of friends had changed.
When you begin to change, the things around you change as well as the people. Your circle of friends changes. My summer friends are a great group of people. We will always be friends but with your change, comes new: new friends, new adventures, new doors, new ideas, new attitudes, new mindsets, new relationships, new favor and new blessings.
As the old year closes and the new year begins, consider what your “new” will be! And remember there will be things and people you will leave behind. But “new” things and people will find you, support you, love you, hug you, hold you accountable, encourage you, pray for and with you!
Many blessings in your future endeavours and goals in 2019. I pray that your “newness” will bring many new things and a new circle of friends.
