Honesty. Loyalty. Compassion. Loving. Thoughtful. Supportive.
All of these are beautiful things. Rather, all of these qualities have potential. They have potential to be used in the most beautiful ways.
I don’t know why really, but I’ve been thinking a lot about friends lately. It’s been such an odd year, hasn’t it? I mean, I can’t really remember the last time I got together with a group of my friends, let alone a group of my friends this year. It just hasn’t happened.
But that’s okay. They’re there. They’re always there when you need them. Just, this year, there’s a little bit of disconnect.
I’ve talked to so many friends this year on phone calls or video calls more than I’ve seen them in person, I think. I’m not going to do a hard count, but it would appear to be right. So, yeah, this year is a little bit different than the rest.
Everyone is kinda doing their own thing this year, whether that’s focusing on their goals, focusing on family, or striving to get their to-do list done. I know I wish I blogged more this year. I didn’t really have a lot of shoots this year, and I transferred to being more of a landscape photographer anyways, which has been a fun exploration time. I do still enjoy portraits.
But, I figured that since my life was more together this year, I would have more time for blogging. Or, rather, set aside more time for blogging. Well, that didn’t exactly happen. But, what did happen was my friendships strengthened. I got to talk to lots of people over the phone that I wouldn’t usually talk to in a day.
It’s been fun. Connecting with new friends, or reconnecting with older friends is a beautiful thing.
It’s a beautiful thing.
