We all know how good friends can be for us. A friend is there when you need to share your ideas or heartache. They inspire you, share your development into a passionate soul and guide you to undiscovered doors of possibility that you bravely open with their support.
Anaïs Nin said it beautifully – ‘Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.’
Just like Friends-4-Ever Bhoomie, we can spend years searching parts of our world for enlightenment when the solution is just a buddy’s hug away.
Every friend we huddle into our arms brings with them their dreams, inspirations and fears which mix together with ours like dough. And just like dough these friendships have to be proofed and kneaded, shaped and baked to become the healthy nourishment that we crave from close bonds with other souls.
And nourishing it is! Researchers have found that friendships can protect us from developing Dementia, lower our stress levels, help us to recover faster from illness or injury and most importantly they make the good habits stick.
So let’s pick up the phone or send a handwritten Friends-4-Ever card today to tell our friends how much they nourish our lives and lighten our paths.
Have a friend-tastic day!
