The Prompt:Reality

I am just about to leave home to have tea with a very old friend that I have not seen in years. I then read my mail and today's Prompt was Reality and it really sparked my mind. We all have friends who we have know for years and some we have just met. In my case I also have lots of cyber friends who are no less special to me. In reality I would love to see my friends all the time ! In reality I would love to met all my cyber friends but I know its unlikely that is going to happen.
I think we put a lot of pressure on ourselves these days to be that perfect person when in reality we are never going to be that! I want to be slim, I want to be healthy , I want to be a good person, I want to be a good parent and grandparent........ I can but try.

The friend I am going to met was a really good friend and we had many many happy times together. Then sadly due to circumstances we grew apart , no fault , no blame just distance and time. I heard that by an  amazing chance she had moved to my town. I had no contact with her until my daughter bumped into her by chance in the doctors. They were delighted to see each other and she asked how I was and how nice it would be to meet up again. So the day is today and I am very excited to see her as its been about 4 or 5 years.

So my reality is to live for today. Today I will work on my diet , today I feel better and today I get the chance to re connect with an old dear friend and for that I am grateful.
Happy weekend all family , friends and cyber friends xxxx

  4. How wonderful to be able to reconnect with an old friend. It can be tough to keep in contact with friends, especially as our lives change and we move away.

  5. I'm so glad you got back in touch with your friend and that your meeting went well :) I think you are absolutely right, we should try to live in the moment as much as we can, and try to be the person that we wish to be; accepting that we won't always manage it, and not being hard on ourselves when we don't. Thank you so much for sharing with #ThePrompt x
