XO #ChildhoodFriendships

#TheHump wasn’t that high yesterday,
I spent a lot time outside; I went out to play.

I met a girlfriend in the leisure yard,
we spent hours on memories, they came fast & hard.

We spent hours on projecting and forecasting tomorrow.
Post 6-hours of hanging out our parting bore a little sorrow.

Because as much as we like hanging out and having fun
to do this long term? Time we’ve set aside equals none.

She promises she’ll do better, and I said the same.
In two different states we reside but the love remains

as tight as it ever was, for she is a girlfriend my childhood.
Just to know she’s doing well and is happy – does my heart good.

I didn’t learn too much new 411 that I didn’t already know:
besides she’s still living sangle and she’s still moving slow. 😀

I love that about her, yo! She moves slow and I move fast.
It’s been 35-years of consistency and our relationship still lasts.

She’s raising 3 kids with 1 in elementary.
When she can’t get away she lives vicariously through me.

She colleged long and started a family later.
I questioned my timing then, but now I feel I did myself a favor

by having my kids young (foregoing party time) I felt quite giving
today that time has been given back and I’ve no need for babysitting.

We’re living in two different acts of life – we are both the same age
but because I had children at 19, mine are on a grown page.

I now act as if I’m 19 because I’ve no kids in the house,
I’ve taken to travel like I’m paid to. I travel about.

Life is good, though as I mature,
I realize great relationships are an aging cure.

No matter your age, your childhood friends remain
the people they were when you first met — we met in 7th grade.

Yesterday we did behave while having girl time: we shopped and dined,
But not a minute before I got her tipsy off those orange juice mimosa’s of mine.

We finished up our playful eve
at a spa doing foot reflexology.

I tell you child,
a little Asian lady drove me wild.

It was only for 30-minutes
but she put every skill she had in it.

Woo! I enjoyed her plenty.
I was enamored, I tipped her $20.

She happily accepted and duly split the fee
with the masseuse that did my girlfriends feet.

Ooo wee.
What an awesome treat.

When was the last time you stepped away from the social fringe
and hung out with a real and true childhood friend?

For me, I am finding that I value them more and am hanging out more often.
Perhaps as you age in wisdom and grace, your heart for appreciation softens.

I’m an introspective person and time well invested speaks volumes to me,
I’m Qui
Hanging out with great friends, starting things up again – I’m excited about WE.

Life is great!
Go outside and play.

Or stay in and get old.

Cool yellow wall

Tarisma: But I don’t see life like you do. I never have.
Qui:  And that’s okay. Your perspective is useful to me. It help’s me to shape the dimensions of my own situation. My view should help you likewise. Your journey is not mine, and mine is not yours, but if you share your view and I share mine, we may be able to calibrate our own situations into something more dimensionally desirable. What do you think?

I like yellow.  In particular this shade of yellow:
yellow-office
Life is huge. I think of it as a big body of water filled with action bouys, (i.e., opportunity). Pick and choose. Opportunities come with certain consequences. Choose wisely.

Stay Focused. I purposely painted my office wall yellow. A sunny yellow because it helps to me to connect with my default sunny disposition. I like to stay focused on ‘what I mean,’ what I’m trying to represent. I prefer to  focus on and linger in the good. Good comes in waves. I ride the waves. I enjoy riding your good waves with you – call me the cheerleader. Good energy is to be shared, therefore, if you’re having a high day please feel free to drop by and ‘show off’ for me. lol! #PutMeOnTheList I love living “the good feeling” with you. Also, I give the biggest high fives and the tightest hugs. “Go for it! Get it! You deserve it!”

You Get what You Give. — I live by it. I give a lot of good energy and I get a lot of good energy back. It goes both ways. #Karma If you want people to greet you with a smile, approach them smiling. 8 times out of 10 it works for me. 🙂

The world is colorful don’t be blinded by it’s beauty.
You like traditional, but she likes tooth fruity.

You don’t have to be bought, you are not for sale.
This body of water is yours, set up your boat and sail.

Build a life you want to live and be sure to take care
with the color of your walls and the memoirs you hang there.

You will see this every day, it will meet you at every point;
I painted my wall yellow because I like to feel sunny in my joint.

Life has many compartments, (i.e., many rooms),
Perhaps in another area, I’ll paint it a periwinkle hue.

This life (space) is yours, insist that it benefits you – without stall,
I’m Qui
Happy Monday morning to thee, focus on you and the hue of your wall.

Tarisma is currently working on her sunny disposition. She also confessed that her walls were factory gray and that she’s currently looking through swatches ISO a positive connection to change the color

Tarisma is the childhood friend that keeps me grounded. We’ve been friends since 7th grade English Honors class. I love her and need her.
