I know it is not time yet but I’ve committed to a ton of activities on Sunday, Aug 3. My plans for that day include starting off at 6am with a group meditation on a hill, followed by classes and a birthday outing that will last until evening time. Yet, I do not want my weekend to pass without making a post to wish all my friends a very“Happy Friendship Day”!
I’ve only gotten serious about this site sometime beginning this year; however, I’ve formed amazing online friendships since then. So I’m going to take the opportunity for some link love to a list of great bloggers, who have been very supportive of my work. Behind the scenes, some of us have corresponded via emails and chatlines, providing assistance and a listening ear. I cannot ask for a better network of friends. As I look through my email list, I realise that it will be impossible to name them all. So I’m just going to write 10 of my favorites (in no particular order) here…
Then, there is alsoAndrea Heasfrom Empowered Soul (now my intuitive coach),Barbara Swaffordfrom Blogging Without a Blog (who provides great blogging advice),Monk Mojo(who never fails to make me laugh with his comics),Tom Volkarfrom Delightful Work (who made a hugeconfessionhere), Alex Blackwell (who’s starting a new site), entrepreneur coachAkemifrom Yes-to-me, Dr James D Swann (who gives me warm supportive comments),Brennanfrom Set Our Teachers Free ….and the list goes on!!
I’m not going to forget my offline friends or those whom I’ve not met in the last few months either. Not all of them may be on the web but they’ve been sweet in their various ways. Most of these friendships are made since school to banking days and more recently. The list: Jia Lin, Anne, Sook, Chih Ai, Stephanie, Siao Yian, May Ling, Karen, Jessie, Grace, Chris, Juliet, Mag, Sherrrilyn, Stanley, Kwang Yong, Daphne, Valerie, Esther, Jessica, Siew Fan, Beng See, Ai Nee, Siu, Will, Alvin, Gordon, Tiat, Vincent, Shafir, Barns and Bita.
Of course, a special mention - my husband - who’s first and foremost my dearest friend!
Lastly, remembering the often said phrase “There are no strangers here; only friends we have not met”, I would also like to dedicate this post to all my readers, whom this site cannot do without. If I’ve somehow failed to name you on this post, rest assured. My thoughts for warm friendship also extend to you!
So here is a song, which remains one of my favorites, to wish everyoneHappy Friendship Day!
