This is what We NeEd

Ah what a crazy week. I must say it has been quite adventurous. I got to meet our new client this week! I will be a consultant for his new start up business helping with market analysis and due diligence. Might sound boring but I love it!

Let me just say I have been doing so much thinking about what I want out of life, the type of person I want to be, and the type of people I want in life. There are so many little quotes and saying about life and love but do we truly listen to them or follow them? I dont really know.I was listening to this song today and really liked the chorus lyrics.I know this might sound ridiculous but this is the person that I want, these are the types of friends I want. Yes this is talking about a relationship but I want to apply it to everyone. I have seen so much lately that people today are landsliding towards selfishness. I have even seen it in myself at times. When was the last time we went out of our way for somebody just because? When was the last time someone showed you that they cared by a simple act of kindness? I really wonder if we surround ourselves with the right people.
I know the type of person that I want to become, and I know the type of people I want in my life.

People who rejoice with you when youre happy,
who are proud of you when you succeed and let you know it,
who cry with you when your heart hurts,
who accept you for who you are and never try to change that,
who inadvertently make you want to be a better person
People who call you just because they care and want to hear about your day
People who respect you in every manner- emotionally and verbally and physically
who are understanding and patient with you
who only want to make you happy with no anterior motives.
who dont start drama and fights
who trust you and forgive you of your past faults
People who still love you for your weaknesses
People who show you they care by word and deed
people who adore you, love you and are just good to you... and for you

This is what I want. I know its rare to find these people but they are out there and I have been so blessed to have just a few of them in my life.
No matter how hard it is, be a better person, treat people with respect deserving or not. Be more selfless, and be kinder
