Who do you think of when you hear the word friend? Is it someone that you recently met or is it someone you have known for a very long time? Can it be both? How warm and fuzzy do you feel when you think of that special friend? Can thinking of them make your day feel that much better? Of course it can! Friends are gift that we give to ourselves! It's a natural form of medication. Yes, our friends can easily reduce stress and anxiety, two of the worst deadly killers.
We watched a documentary on 60 minutes about an uncanny-unthinkable friendship between two unlikely people. It was a story about a Navy Seal who's platoon was completely taken out and he was on the run from the enemy in Afghanistan. He had been shot twice in the leg and his back was broken, but he kept on running trying to find water. He was certain that he would die but just as he had fallen into a waterfall, a couple of villagers surrounded him. He didn't care about dying he told them as he pulled the pin out of the grenade to try and scare them off- but instead the villagers convinced him that they were there to help him. They took him to one of the villager's home, gave him food and water, and nursed him to health. After this, the Navy Seal made it back to America but never forgot about his new friend that saved him. He arranged for his Afghan friend to fly to America where they reunited. They saw each other like brothers- the best of friends!
Do you have someone in your life like this? We are sure that you would readily agree with us that it's an amazing blessing if you do! It makes life that much more spiritual because you feel a deep connection with another soul(s) in this world! It feeds your soul with energy and purpose because you believe that you mean the world to someone else. Isn't that what our families do for us too? Yes, especially if you have your own children. We marvel at the innocence that we are entrusted with and are responsible for!
With that said, "Put a little MaxPower into your life!"
