Kindred Spirits

Dragonfly Fairy Friendship Card by Victoria Lynn Hall

You can have thousands of Twitter followers and Facebook Friends but, if you are lucky, there will still likely be only a handful of people in your life that you can really trust with your heart. In our quest for success, fulfillment & recognition, we may at times take this for granted. Spending our efforts reaching out to new people and broaden our social circle can often rob of us of the time we spend with those who have always been right by our side. Even people who have hurt or betrayed us can sometimes occupy our thoughts more than those who have been steadfastly loyal and loving to us.

Perhaps it is true that you can't have too many friends, but they will not all be Kindred Spirits. So while you are making new connections, make sure you are also honoring the tried and true ones. Make sure those who know and love you best are getting your best efforts too.
