Today I wanted to talk to you about circles! No, I am not talking about the actual geometric symbol, but rather circles of family, friends and associates. Did you know that studies have actually shown that people who have family, friends and other support systems in their lives enjoy a healthier and more fulfilled life? Yes, the old expression that “no man is an island” is absolutely true!
I am so thankful for my amazing family! A truly beautiful wife, two brothers, loving parents, two wonderful kids, a great son-in-law, and in-laws that I totally enjoy hanging out with. I have friends all over the country that I love visiting with and having fun with. I have many business related associates that have actually become close friends that I enjoy spending time with as well.
If you have not yet been able to sense this yet, I love spending time with my family and friends! That is not to say that a certain amount of time alone isn’t good. Believe it or not, I love doing things by myself as well. Maybe more than most people do. I can do a lot of reflecting when I am by myself. But no man is an island, and it’s very important to develop friends in life. As you grow older your circles will become more and more important.
Remember the theme song to the beloved Golden Girls show? It was “Thank You for Being a Friend”… and as the four ladies in the show portrayed – friends are the best.
Rock on my friends.
