Stepping with Friends

It's easy for some friendships to not change with the changes in your life. Easy to find the prospect of adapting your usual routines with certain people too daunting to bother. I usually only see her in this situation and we don't go there anymore. Changing scenarios with them seems like a leap. Shamefully often, I've just moved on. Most school friends stayed school friends. Most friends from this or that job stayed as that. Friends I got drunk with in my single days couldn't be envisaged here in my married life. That was good for then, didn't know how it would fit in my new life landscape, so I just left it in the past. Though I've never thought consciously about it like that, essentially that's what happened.
For some that was right. For others, I hope to find the time and travel means to write a different story.
A few though, came along for the ride.
Infact one appears to be there no matter what. Allowing time and/or distance and/or circumstance to have us drift off was never an option with this one. You know what I discovered? Food is universal of all ages, states of being and stages of life. When in doubt; eat together.
And we ate. And ate.

Now I'm thinking about how much of being a happy Mum is about adapting your former childless social life effectively to parenthood. Taking little social risks and taking a friendship out of comfort zones; gets rewards.
What's more amazing than taking big life steps? Taking big life steps with people you love.
Here we are, stepping.
And for your viewing pleasure... Farm birds...

  5. Wow, this post really hit home with me. I'm struggling right now with friendships, new and old, and wondering where they went or where they will go from here. I think I've had to accept that some change, and be thankful for the ones that seem to be constant through the changes. The pictures are beautiful!
