Not Diggin' The Sheep Thing...

I really miss those people I can count on in my life. You know, the ones you can call at 3 A.M. and they will be at your house in 15 minutes?

Don't get me wrong... I still have those people, they are just, you know, 1500 miles away.

Kinda a pain in the ass on days like today. Thank God for technology.

I've learned that most people are sheep. They will blindly follow wherever they are led, without the ability (or desire, apparently) to think for themselves and do what they really want. Instead, they let someone else decide what is good, bad, right, and wrong. They let other people make their choices, and they just mechanically follow.


My friends, however, are very unlike this. They are willful, independent, strong, confident, amazing people. They have vision. They have talent. They have heart. They are real and authentic.

That's not to say we never have issues. We disagree, and we get over it. They live their lives, I live mine. We don't always see eye to eye, but we always have each others' backs.

Those are the people I want and need in my life. Those are the fantastic people I am privileged to call my friends. Those are the people who matter.

And the rest? They.just.don't.

Most people will come and go.

And that's okay.

They enter your life for a reason or a season, and then they are gone.

My friends, however, aren't most people. :)

  1. I am starting to sort out the friends who are just "sheep" and those who are not too. It is so, so, sweet to have lifelong friends that just love you where you are. :)
