Value of Friendship

Oftentimes ,we all busy with our schedule and commitments.We never have time to catch up with good friends due to running errands.Ramadhan is a perfect time to gather everyone.So last Tuesday,I had iftar with my stooges (Miera & Liyana).

This year mark 8th year of Friendship we had.Miera ,Liyana and I were in Uitm,Shah Alam pursuing our ACCA after completing our CAT in 2004.As we look back on our life,we realized that there were so many things we have done together and shared so much stories.Bittersweet!

The time we spent during Uni days were awesome and worthwhile.In fact,one day,I'll be telling my kids to value the friendship as much they value the family.Of course in friendship,we cant avoid arguments and  misunderstanding.But let go a little and just let life happen.As we grow, we realize it becomes less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones.

Stooges (L-R :Liyana ,Miera and I)

 Making one person smile can change the world.  Maybe not the whole world, but their world.  Your kindness and gratitude matters.  Make an effort to really listen  not just wait to talk.  See the other person as if for the first time.  It’s all too easy to take someone for granted.  Really notice all the wonderful things they do, and let them know what you see.My two darlings Hazlind Shee and Shakinah.They are the ones who matter most.

This year,I won't be having my iftar session with my darling Hazlind.She has moved to San Francisco last year.Things changed.We are all struggling to achieve dreams.So as I was having quick conversation with Shakinah through whatsapp on our iftar plan,we realized that this year won't be fun like usual years. Hazlind is not physically appeared.The one who always tease us "you both are BERTIH".

We miss you always darling

Real friends meet in the middle.A real friend is someone who truly knows you, and loves you just the same.My two blondes who I acquainted in the bank are my best counsellor.They are sisters to me.Colleague cum sisters.Good friends sees the pain in your eyes while everyone else still believes the smile on your face.I heart both of you much my two Zs.

The sad truth is that there are some people who will only be there for you as long as you have something they need.  When you no longer serve a purpose to them, they will leave.  Regardless how you met your friends and where,the most important thing is real friends keep promises and tell the truth upfront.The good news is, if you tough it out, you’ll eventually weed these people out of your life and be left with some great people you can count on.  We rarely lose friends and lovers, we just gradually figure out who our real ones are.

Live by choice, not by chance.  Make changes, not excuses.  Be motivated, not manipulated.Cherish the friendship you have.I am blessed.Surrounded by beautiful hearts.In life,you get what you put in.

Jazakallah Khair.Happy Fasting lovies :)
