Page Girls Take NYC
It's been a busy few weeks and I am making myself sit down today and write! We had such a wonderful time in New York. With my sister living in Shreveport, my mom living in Monroe, and me of course in West Monroe, we all three are rarely all together-- just the 3 of us. So, needless to say, when the original 3 get together, we always have fun and LOTS of laughs!
|So cool being at the Kelly and Michael Morning Show|
We were literally completely drenched on the morning of the Michael and Kelly show...
stood out in the rain for 2 hours. Nope, we didn't have umbrellas.
We finally got some, after we were soaked:)
What I love about us is that that even when we haven't
where we left off. I LOVE friends that you feel like you can just be
you with.You know, those ones who you can sit in a car with for an hour,
not say a word, and no one questions if something is wrong?
I love that. I value that in friendships and relationships.

Shane when we were there- he's the best!
In all honesty, comfortability comes before any deep friendship.
Sometimes in my therapy sessions, I focus more on comfortability that
because I know I won't really be able to help anyone until they feel comfortable with me.
Thankful I have so many friends and family members I feel comfortable with. Do people feel comfortable around you?
Here are some things I have learned through school and through life that bring comfortability:
1.) Talk less, listen more
--evaluate who is talking more
2.) Ask meaningful questions
--be others' focused
3.) Share your shortcomings
-- being vulnerable and genuine makes people know they are not alone
4.) Be upfront
-- tell someone straight up that you want them to feel comfortable with you
Didn't know you'd get a lesson today, did you?
Next week, I will be in Houston for some check ups, but I plan to blog each day next week. A little blog extravaganza:) So I will keep you updated.
Thankful for my family and those in my life that make me feel comfortable,
