Scrambling between cultures, mindsets, locations, communities, and languages leaves me wanting to hear from a friend with great faith. Ever been there?
Ever been wondering where the next result will happen in a mishmash of work, but not the results you want?
Of course you have.
Those are the moments you need other men of like mind and like heart and like passion. Of course, I am writing to men. Men seem to have an aversion to keeping strong friendships strong. They jsut want them to be there when they need them. Why should they need maitenance?
Those are the moments you need to reach out to a trusted friend.
Those are the moments you need to have prepared over time so the relationship is intact and trustworthy.
So, if you are not there today, it is a good day to work on building one of those friendships. Strengthen it with a few laughs over a cup of coffee or a trip to Lowes for tripping down the tool aisle or playing a game of golf or just sitting on a bench and visiting.
Take time for friendship building. There are times you will certainly wish you did.
