True Friendships

True FriendshipsWe had a really nice meeting of the Bournemouth veggie/vegan group today, great food at the Mad Cucumber and scintillating company as always, and some blossoming friendships however you care to measure them.

You cannot judge the quality of another’s friendship by superficial appearances, especially when things are going smoothly.

It is only when we have experienced the worst, most crushing of times, when we have plumbed the depths of life, that we can truly experience the joys of genuine friendship.

Only a woman or man of principle, of resolve, a person who stays true to their chosen path, can be trusted and a true friend, and have real friends in turn.

Determined Resolve

New Year ResolutionsI don’t know about you, but I gave up making New Year resolutions many years ago. In fact, deciding to stop making them may be the only one I have ever actually kept in the long term.

Resolutions usually involve stopping doing something we feel we shouldn’t do, like smoking or eating too much, or starting to do something we feel that we should, like taking exercise, but while they may be a laudable idea, most of us give in within weeks or even days of making them.

If you are one of the many millions of people who have made a resolution or two, I hope you can find the determination to be able to keep them. My only question would be, why, if you have something so important, that it becomes the subject of a resolution, did you leave it until New Year to decide to do it?
