Soulful Sunday #48: Treasured Friendships

Friendships, kindred spirits and heartfelt connections, they’re all found here on WP and they’re even more special when they filter into our real life. That’s what happened on Sunday here in Melbourne when I reconnected with lovely Hayley from Dear Dad.

Hayley is a gifted writer with the kindest soul, a beautiful heart and smile to match. She always inspires me with her thoughtful posts. Comments are closed here so head on over to her blog and say hello.

Soul Reflections

As an introvert with a Scorpio sun-sign born in the year of the Rat, I fiercely value family, loyalty and authentic connection. I rarely surround myself with large numbers of frivolous friendships, choosing instead to keep a close circle of faithful friends, my chosen family, near to my heart.

When one discovers deep connection, then one has found a faithful friend. It doesn’t matter how often you meet, what matters is the love, trust and acceptance you share.

If you can place your heart in another’s hands and trust it is safe, held, and protected – when you’re at your best and when you’re at your worst – then you are blessed with an unbreakable bond that will survive all kinds of weather.

Such kindred spirits can be found in a parent, child, sibling, partner, teacher, friend or pet. It’s that instant recognition, that feeling of coming home, that moment when you know you can be completely yourself, free from fear or judgement.

Cherish those connections as you walk along this journey – because they are the true treasures in life.

Soul Strolls

Soul strolling this weekend took place in Warburton. This quaint country town is just an hours drive from Melbourne and a true treasure to visit.
