Companionship is one of the most important things in life. We all need people around us. I love my alone time but sharing life with friends and family is what makes it is all about. Many times in our lives we find ourselves alone when we could really use some friendship. My grandfather once said "in order to have friends you need to be friend." He also used to say "flibbity flew and 21 skidoo" too so he didn't always make sense but the friend thing does.

I think what it really means is making yourself somebody you would want to hang out with. Think about it. Would you want to hang out with you? Are you a Debbie Downer? Do you complain about everything? Are you guilty of doing the things that drive you crazy about others? I think we all get guilty of giving all of our kindness and patience in the work place and then bringing the worst of us home to the ones who deserve our best. We need to make a concerted effort to leave the stress of work at work and let that drive home free you from it.

We spend more time with ourselves than anyone else. You owe it to yourself to be someone you want to be with. Smile with, dance with,  live, laugh with and love your self and others will want to be a part of that joy as well. Many have said it through the years because it's true. "If you can't love you, how can anyone else?" Starting today be your own best friend and find out just how awesome you really are.
