My husband and I enjoyed the most wonderful evening out with two very special friends the other night. If honest, it turned into a bit of a soul-baring session by us each, in turn.
I’d previously thought I knew as much about them all as I was ever going to know – but there were some amazing surprises and I was privileged to be there. Nice also, for the two of us in the group who make a living out of listening to other people’s stories and don’t often get asked much about our own lives.
I woke up the next morning with a good feel about the occasion, about my friends, and about our collective stories – the tales of our lives that have got us to who and where we are today. Still, always, with room for improvement, I’m sure for each of us, but in a good place, and stronger from having each other to lean on.
So I’m making the most of today, and feel reminded of a lovely quote by William Watson Purkey who was an American educator:
“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, love like you’ll never be hurt, sing like there’s nobody listening, and live like it’s heaven on earth.”
