Do you have people? You know what I mean, PEOPLE. People who GET you. The people you confide in. The people you can tell EVERYTHING to. I think we all have people! I have people and then I have THE PERSON! This is the PERSON who GETS ME!
She is the one who I RELATE to in all different capacities! We talk the same LANGUAGE! We share inspirational thoughts and ideas, talk about the UNIVERSE and LAW OF ATTRACTION. We like to sit on the couch and eat SALAMI and BIKE. When we are biking we are talking whether it is on flat ground or climbing a hill. If we get separated we find a place to stop and talk. We NEVER go without TALKING!
For a while I wondered how we were brought together. I used to think it was a situational thing and now I know it was SYNCHRONICITY. It was meant to be.
My hubby and I moved to Vail, Colorado in 2003. I met this person and saw her occasionally but we weren’t close. Two years later we lost a mutual friend. Since that TRAGIC event we, Kelley and I, bonded IMMEDIATELY.
Fast forward 10 years later, we moved to another valley 90 minutes away. I remember how much I cried amongst the excitement of starting over in a new place.
You do realize who your true PEOPLE are when you move, right?
Since I moved, we have gotten together a few times, and speak periodically, but we miss being in the same valley!
Recently, I had the opportunity to be home alone with our new puppy while my husband and kids left for a few days to be with his family. I called up Kelley and said, “I need Kelley time. I’m home alone. Are you around to come over and we can ride?” She came! We were only together for 16 hours yet we didn’t stop talking until we went to bed. Once we were up in the morning, the talking began and continued on our bike ride which then ended with a call as she was driving home.
There was so much I got out of our many conversations and most importantly, she talked me off the edge of this whole PUPPY thing.
HOW DID SHE DO THAT? You ask.
Well, after our many conversations about life, kids, husband, people, dogs; she looked at me and said, “If you can raise your kids you can do that! (pointing to the puppy).
WOW! That was what I NEEDED to HEAR and the EXACT reason WHY I NEEDED KELLEY TIME!
This is what OUR PERSON does for us! I only HOPE I create the same IMPACT and JOY with her and my OTHER PEOPLE!
Who is YOUR PERSON? What does that PERSON do for you!
Please comment and share and let me know your thoughts as I LOVE hearing from you all!
