Friendly Thoughts

There's something you need to know about me and that is that I am an over thinker. It is not always a bad thing but sometimes it can be a hindrance. Yesterday I had a bit of a moment, as I was thinking about someone I haven't been in touch with for about a year, and it inspired me to write this post. Let me expand for a second...

It is so easy, in this hectic world of ours, to feel alone and to feel isolated, but what dawned on me, as I thought of the friend, who is now a slightly faded (but still ever-so-precious) memory in my mind, is this: out of all the time we spend thinking of the people who have been in our lives or are in our lives still, who is thinking of you? I think this is a comforting thought - to think that someone, somewhere is having a thought about you or replaying an existing memory of times past, but it is something you may never ever know about. Still, it is a comfort.

If you are anything like me you probably recall things all the time, replaying them, adjusting the ending to make a 'what if?' scenario in your mind...how would it have been different if...? I am not talking about just relationships here, although I am sure we have all had those thoughts, but friendships, little moments with someone important, or bigger moments you wish had ended differently. I guess my point is that I wonder if anyone does this about me? It is easy to imagine it is just you doing the thinking and that you will never pass through someones mind, but I don't believe that to be true and when you really contemplate it I think it is a lovely thought.

I am going to try and make more of an effort to tell those close to me what is in my mind, the positive things I think about, because I feel that life is too short not to - I wish more people would do this. If you like someone, tell them you like them. If you think someone looks good today, tell them. If you miss someone, tell them you miss them (there is nothing sweeter than that to me...who doesn't like to be missed?).


  1. This is a lovely sentiment. Something I have been thinking a lot about lately too. I think the fact that we can so easily access people makes it even harder when we don't hear from the ones we love or when we mean to do a shout out and don't get around to it.

  2. Very true - the accessibility means that it can be even more obvious when someone drops out of your life I guess. Thanks for stopping by my blog lovely :-)
