I just recently discovered that to be-friend someone will cause you to be-happy! The definition of be-friend is, to make friends, or become friendly with; act as a friend to; help; aid: to befriend the poor and the weak.
It is important to reach out and invite people into our lives as we move toward our personal goals of, pursuing our dreams, finding true happiness, growing personally, and stimulating our new interest. What a great way to achieve all of this, then by befriending someone. When I have been asked, what truly makes me happy, I have told them helping others. I have thought to myself, that MUST sound corny, however now I know that this is real and the result of befriending. I have recently discovered that to befriend someone a.k.a. helping them, not only does it make a difference in the other person’s life, but it has an even greater impact on mine. We do grow personally, engage in activities that will help us to pursue our dreams, and do find true happiness by helping others. So, I am not sure I will wait for someone to ask for my help, but maybe offer a little more, reach out to lost friends more often, and make it a point to try and befriend as many people as I can. My father used to say you can never have too many friends and now I know why. It brings you an abundance of “real” happiness, the kind that can’t be bought, or given.
I have been fortunate to have been be-friended by some truly wonderful souls, and if that is because I am helping others, then onward I will not walk but run. Anyone for a run?
