Been awhile since I have done one of these but the holiday is over, and it is time to get back at it.
These “blueprints” are prompting me to think through what I want from life. They are merely a baby step in as I begin to traverse thinking through my life plan. I have already written on wanting to get married, wanting to get my hands dirty, and wanting to get fit.
I want to cultivate deep and authentic friendships.
I know everyone probably wants this on some level. But I crave this.
I vividly remember venting to a friend last year about how many “friends” I had, but how few people I had that were truly “on my team.”
Over the last twelve months that has changed dramatically, I have been blessed with some amazing friends. But still I have work to do:
I need to invest, really invest, in every one of my “VIPs.” Because I want them to have NO DOUBT that I am “on their team.” Relentlessly rooting for them.
I need to heal deep wounds left from decades of friendships gone awry. The last thing I want to do is leave it festering. Because I believe that “hurt people, hurt people.”
And I need to work on being authentic. Even when it is tough. That is where true accountability starts.
How are you working to cultivate deep and authentic friendships?
