This month we are not only celebrating the return of our blog, Spread the Light, but we are also celebrating all of the friendships in our lives. Part of that celebration is taking a moment to reflect on the beauty of these precious relationships and also remembering to show appreciation for them. Below are some quotes and affirmations on friendship that we love and wanted to share. We also want to hear from you! Tell us stories of your friendships and tag #SpreadtheLight on any of your social pages! Remember there is an extra bonus of a chance to win a Miranda Kerr for Royal Albert tea-set!
"A person learns how to love himself through the simple acts of loving and being loved by someone else." - Haruki Murakami
Friends can often be the best of teachers. Receiving support in times of need, experiencing laughter and good spirits in times of celebration and non-judgment and acceptance of us in the face of our foibles are all reminders to give the same thing in return. We learn what supportive love means through our friendships.
There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends. That magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others first; when you learn to live for others, they will live for you. – Paramahansa Yogananda
It can be difficult to think of others when our own needs are so urgent. But it is in shining the light for others that we are illuminated; it is in sharing and serving that we feel fulfilled and complete.
My friends accept and support me in following my conscience and I accept and support them in doing the same
Let your light shine! Friends allow us the ability to be true to our conscience without fear of judgment. We encourage you to practice this affirmation with your hands on your heart, breathing into the heart. The conscience lives in the heart and when you are quiet, you can hear it. Follow that voice. Support your friends when they do the same. Know that true friends will always support you when you are following your conscience.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. – Marcel Proust
We encourage you to show gratitude for all the meaningful relationships in your life by making a phone call or writing an email to express that appreciation to your loved ones. True friendships can be the most reliable form of love. We often even consider them family. Try practicing the sweet and simple affirmation below to fill your heart with gratitude for the friends in your life.
