On Sushi and Shae
Thought up while listening to Splinters and Stones – UNITED
There comes a time in your life when you realize that it’s not about quantity but about quality. It’s not about the number of friends that you have on Facebook but about the number of real friends in your life.
Friends come and friends go,
but a true friend sticks by you like family. – Prov. 18:24 (MSG)
One of those true friends in my life is Shae! Shae runs a blog which you could check out here. Scratch that. You SHOULD check it out! Haha! One of the things that I love about Shae, besides the fact that she can cook like no other, is her ability to love. Her friendship is unparalleled, she loves like no other and always goes above and beyond. We can speak for hours about food, about God, about our dreams and aspirations, about politics and current affairs and about nothing at all. We could be serious and we could be silly, we have found a safe place with each other. What I love the most about our friendship is that I know that she will not allow me to mess up on her watch. If I am making the wrong choice, she will let me know! If my outfit it not working for me, she will let me know! If the guy that I’m dating is not up to par, then she will let us both know haha!
Since meeting her my life has become exponentially better and I thank God for her daily. You become like the people that you surround yourself with so choose your tribe carefully. Imagine that you are on a small boat, heading into the best direction for your life, there are friends who will be watching the map with you and helping you row, beware of the ones who are making holes in your boat or are idly standing by. There may be a season when your friend may have to rest on your boat until he/she gets their footing but if that’s not the case then leave them at the next dock. It’s sink or swim time, evaluate your friendships and surround yourself with true friends.
Thankful for Shae, only a true friend will let you eat sushi for brunch hehe! Here are some pictures from our time at Catch in NYC’s Meatpacking District.
