Friends for inspiration


This post is for my friend A.

No matter how busy you are or how busy you think you are, try making time to have lunch with good friends. An hour may not be enough to catch up on each other’s news, but it will be an hour well-spent. And that one hour is better than no hour at all!

Sharing goals, sharing tips on how to get to those goals — the conversation will be made of nothing but win. Whether the life plans you share can happen as soon as Monday or over the next ten years, it feels great sharing them with someone who understands you well, someone you know will support you.

So here’s to real friendship. Here’s to bringing tranquility into a friend’s frenzied day. Here’s to bringing excitement to a friend’s quiet ways. Here’s to the life balance friendship brings. Cheers!

When was the last time you went to lunch with a friend?

    My friend Zara and I have regular lunch dates. Some friends I haven’t seen in ages. Thanks for the reminder.

    You’re welcome! And sometimes unplanned lunches are the ones that push through better. You know, the spur-of-the-moment types!

    If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you wrote this for me. Sheesh!
    Anyway, a toast to good friends, and good food!

    Definitely worth remembering. I don’t do a lot of ‘alone’ lunches or dinners with people (w/o family/kids/husband). But, I have been going out a bit more lately. Just a couple of weeks ago, I had a Pinoy lunch/DVD get-together with some friends here. Then, last week, dinner with some new friends I met online. And yes, it’s all good. :-)

    Wonderful isn’t it! Sometimes we feel like there’s always a next time so we postpone our lunches. The truth is we never know if they’re going to push through our not, so do it while you can!

    I take my lunch during weekdays with a friend-officemate. But I’m guilty about this post. Back home, I was not able to take good care much of some relations with my friends because I was too busy, primarily with work. You’re right, an hour lunch can make a big difference. Its effect could be lifetime.

    Very true. So do make time!

    It’s been a while since I’ve had lunch with my close friends. I’ve been a little busy lately but I’m hoping to see some friends soon.

    Catching up is always fun! There could be not enough time but at least you made time right?
