Minute by minute

my thoughts on making the most out of all of life's minutes…

Welcome Back Friends!

Happy September!

HEELLLOOOO!  I’m back!  It’s been a great summer, very full of fun things happening.

I’m happy to be back in a firm routine and am happy the boys are more engaged in things besides running through the sprinklers and eating popsicles all day.

Before I jump right into my themed days (I’ll start that up again next week), I wanted to ask you a question.  I’d love to hear other’s views on this point that I’ve heard from about three friends over the last few weeks.

Talking with these three very different friends of mine, none of them know each other and in each situation, the discussion took an interesting turn which lead to the same sentiment:

“I don’t have enough time for the friends I have now, I don’t want to make any new friends.”

I wonder what your thoughts on this?

Do you agree?

Do you disagree?

Why?

I’ll share my thoughts tomorrow, but I’d love to hear yours today.

Happy Thursday everyone!

~Amy

 

PS – it’s good to be back!

  1. I couldn’t agree more! I have friends who are dear to my heart that I haven’t seen in…well, too long! By the time I work at my pet sitting business 7 days a week, be the best Mom and wife I can, there is not time left for friends. It makes me feel sad to think that those friendships are being neglected. Growing new friendships seems like an absolute chore. One that I am not interested in at this time in my life.

  2. WOW – I don’t think that one can ever have too many friends. I think as we change throughout our lives, we meet people that are more “like us” at different times. I’ve got a few friends from way back in the days and I know we’ll see each other when we’re 80 and it will be like old times – as it always is when we’ve gone years w/out seeing or talking to each other besides the random FB post. I’ve got a few friends now that I mean everything to me and I want to cherish those friends and plan on always being in each others lives. I know that I meet people that may become “walking buddies” or dinner companions but those types come & go. I don’t have human kids so maybe that’s why my friendships mean so much to me and I enjoy making new ones. Even if they don’t become “forever friends” and more like acquaintances…I am all about meeting new people. I believe we learn and grow from everyone we meet. That actually makes me a little sad to hear that these people are too busy to develop new relationships. 😦

  3. Thanks Mindy and Kim for your comments. They help me fine tune my thoughts on this topic too.

    Any other comments out there?

  5. I’d never make a conscious choice that I don’t want anymore friends I don’t think…and as you go through life you meet and are drawn to various people so perhaps it’s not a choice we Can consciously make 😉

  6. Amy, glad I’ll be able to read you again! HF
