True happiness arises, in the first place, from the enjoyment of one's self, and in the next, from the friendship and conversation of a few select companions.
May 7th - companions on the journey
Friends are as companions on a journey, who ought to aid each other to persevere in the road to a happier life.
Some people thrive on change, but not all of us. We like to have some sense of order and a feeling that we know what is going to happen next. The reality is, however, that life is full of changes: new jobs, new homes, children, grandchildren, and so much more. Our lives can be very unpredictable.
Changes happen to all of us but I have found that companionship is an important key to help us through all these transitions. My family and friends were there for me when when some unexpected changes came my way and they certainly helped me to accept them and move forward.
A wise companion is half the journey.
Friends support us by listening to our joys and struggles. They encourage us and cheer us up when things look dim. They offer us a different perspective when we are stumped by a challege. They even let us vent about things that are annoying! Most of all, they add stability to our lives as we experience the transitions and upheavals that life can throw at us. Because of them, life can become a shared journey and not a solitary adventure.
I’m very thankful for the gift of companionship, for my family and friends, they are always there for me. I also hope they know that I’m there for them when needed.
Remember: Companionship is a two way street.
A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles
