In today’s post i’m going to be covering a point I’ve pondered a few times in adult life and that point is – the people you want in and around your life.

Now I was able to find a quote on this which rather than being from any great philosopher or modern thinker actually comes from the US TV show “How I Met Your Mother”.

And the quote goes:
“You will be shocked kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever. That’s why, when you find people you want to keep around, you do something about it”

This really resonated with me. Especially the part about how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever.

I don’t know about you but when I look back on my life so far there are times when there were people who I was so close with and at the time I couldn’t imagine that we would ever drift apart. Yet somehow a number of years on and you can find yourself in that position. It can be easy to part ways and not realise it’s forever.

I guess though that this experience is what helps you to value those in your life that you really want and need to keep around. This experience is what triggers you to do something about keeping them in your life.
