Have you ever been called out on your stuff and the person was justly right in doing so? Ever sat turning your wheels on something for days then someone comes along shows you a simple fix and you’re left wondering was it really that simple? That’s what happens when you build meaningful relationships with blogger boos like Robin and Carla.
This past weekend we finally had the chance to catch up for a long overdue meet up and it’s like we never skipped a beat. It’s weird how life tends to pull you in so many different directions that getting around to doing the smallest things like meet a friend for drinks or brunch totally escapes your mind unless you put it on your calendar and set a reminder.
Well that’s exactly how life has been for me lately. If it’s not on my calendar I’m either going to forget about it or I’m reminded at the last minute and I’ve already booked something else. With that being said I vowed this year to commit more to the things and people that I truly admire and love. So what does that mean, everything and I mean everything goes on the calendar with a reminder. Even something as simple as meet ups with my boos or sistafriends. You get the gist of it right?
We did a little exploring and ventured out to two new places – Saturday was lunch at Drip Atlanta in Hapeville with Carla and Sunday was breakfast at Silver Skillet in Midtown with Robin. We laughed a little, enjoyed great food and knowledge swapped.
We even snapped quite a few pictures because that’s what bloggers do, but somehow during the midst of all the fun we forgot to snap a few together pics (insert long sigh).
But what I love about these two women is that it doesn’t matter the amount of time that passes without face to face interactions we’re still able to chat virtually and maintain a solid relationship. I don’t know if there’s some sort of perfect formula, but what I can say is that we’re able to respectfully call the other one out on their stuff, hold each other accountable, support each other without competing all while learning and growing along the way. Now the analytical side of me always makes an attempt to figure out how things work especially when it comes to building relationships with women in today’s world. And as I reflect on the events that happened this past week and the chats we have virtually three things stand out the most: a natural connection, we knowledge share and support each other wholeheartedly without expecting anything in return and we have fun in the midst of it all. For that I’m truly grateful to have met them.
