Friends Cut

I finally did the friends-cut I'd been meaning to do for a year or so now. I mostly dropped journals that appeared dead, people I never heard from, or folks I felt I just wasn't cultivating a bond with.

It's late at night and I did go click-happy though, so if I deleted anyone by accident, I apologize. If you're still active here and interested in what I post, and if you'd like to be added back, just drop me a line and let me know.

There are a number of journals that I'm still on the fence about. I nudged several old friends, too. I may end up dropping more if I still don't hear from them. I'm really needing to cultivate deep friendships and tighten up my support network.

Thanks for understanding! And seriously, if I dropped someone I shouldn't have, don't hesitate to let me know.

*love* Nothing more than that. ;)

Aw, thank you! *love back*

I find this is an essencial activity that I too go through about once a year :) Good for the soul. Sort of like washing the winter grime off the windows :)

I agree. I'd been meaning to for a long while, but I just hadn't gotten around to going through everything. I'm glad I finally sat down and just did it.

Yay! I got nervous for a while there - I know I haven't been as good about commenting as I should - hopefully it'll get better after the semester's over...
May. 5th, 2010 04:03 pm (UTC)
No worries! I'm actually hoping that this will make it easier for me to comment everyone, so I know how that goes.
May. 5th, 2010 01:31 pm (UTC)
I'm probably one of your on-the-fencers. I'd love to have you keep me around - you seem to be doing some very cool stuff! And maybe one of these days I'll actually learn Reiki, so we'd have something in common. :)
May. 5th, 2010 04:04 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad you think I'm doing cool stuff. I hope to be getting back to teaching reiki again soon. I'm not quite so wallowing in darkness anymore, so I'm not afraid of doing attunements anymore. Daily reiki has definitely helped.

I kept you around for a reason damnit! :)

I'm interested in reading you. (I would have PM'd you with an "I'll miss you, damnit, but...)

I know I've not been around much, but...well, I still do come back here to read even if I don't comment like i used to.

Also...you're one of the few I actually looked *forward* to reading because you're one of the few who actually writes thought provoking stuff and writes about what it's like to do what you do. So...yeah.

Oh wow, thank you. I'm honored! I'm very sorry about that then. I've happily added you back. I'll try to actually post stuff with more substance in the future. I know I haven't been very good with that lately.
May. 5th, 2010 03:18 pm (UTC)
I was worried you'd dropped me too. Thank you for not. ^^

*hugs* for it still being May.
May. 5th, 2010 04:07 pm (UTC)
My pleasure - and thank you! Yeah, May is a very hard one. I appreciate the kindness.
May. 5th, 2010 04:58 pm (UTC)
I am a bit surprised you kept me around, thank you :P

I am trying to get into writing post again. I too am feeling the need to get a tighter network of friends going again. Good luck.
May. 5th, 2010 05:00 pm (UTC)
Well I'll admit, I'm happy to learn that you're still around. I was hoping to see more stuff from you. :)
May. 5th, 2010 06:04 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry I've not been so active around here lately, though I've tried to keep up with everything.

I've had issues with one of my kitties being poorly for the last month - she pulled through surgery a couple of weeks ago but last night she had to be put to sleep after her health went downhill.

I used to be able to write about these things, but for some reason - this time I can't find it in me.

Know that i'm reading everything though and will try to be more interactive!
May. 6th, 2010 05:37 pm (UTC)
I'm so sorry to hear that! I'll say a prayer for you guys. I totally understand about not being able to write about it. I'd been forcing myself to write that last post for about three weeks before I was finally able.

Thanks for keeping me! I enjoy reading your posts, though I don't get to comment as much as I'd like to.

My pleasure. I'm glad to hear it! Thank you.

Funny to be introducing myself on a friends cut post, but I searched for reiki on a whim (I don't know much about it, but I really want to) and you came up, so, I added you! Hi! Of course, if you're not adding anyone atm, I understand.
May. 6th, 2010 07:49 pm (UTC)
Hi there, and thank you for adding me! I'm honored. This was a long overdue clean-up, but I'm always happy to make new friends. Especially folks interested in reiki & spirit. Please feel free to peruse my tags or anything, and if you have any questions that I might answer, don't hesitate to ask! This is great timing, as I am trying to get back to my reiki path after having diverted for a little bit. I look forward to getting to know you better!

I also have a filter post on my sidebar, if you want to look them over and tell me which you'd like to be on. Welcome!
May. 7th, 2010 01:46 am (UTC)
Please don't drop me - I read, I pray, I send energy. I just suck at posting.
May. 7th, 2010 05:06 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I have sucked at posting lately myself, but I'm working on it.

do you remember me? cuz i remember you...
Hey Amanda.
I used to work at the starbucks at the ingles on long shoals about 2 years ago and I remember you and your girls coming in every morning. I've been travelling for a few years now but have recently returned to asheville. I've also become very interested in learning reiki over the years and have even kept my eye open for a reiki master to learn from but I kept feeling like we connected pretty well and honestly I never met another person I'd rather learn from. You just always had a super great vibe and I like you. Anyway, I'm back in asheville blowing glass again... lots of marbles right now. So hopefully you don't think I'm a stalker but I found the christmas card you gave me that year in a book that I got back from a friend since i got back in town and it had the little "blue ridge reiki center" gift certificate thing so... I googled it and there you are. Yay. Well, I hope you and your family are doing well. I don't have a phone right now but the phone at the glass shop is 828.242.0899. Call me if you feel like getting together sometime. I'd love to see you again! Also, my facebook name is "joyful faith" in case you can find me on there. I use the wifi at the oteen ingles every day. Take care, mama. blessings!

So... i sent that to your my space and then realized you hadn't used it in 2 years, found this live journal and find out you're in IL! Crazy. Is it nice there? Well, it would still be nice to reconnect with you if you're up for it. And maybe i'll end up out west later on this year anyway. I don't have a live journal anymore but my facebook name is "Joyful Faith"

Re: do you remember me? cuz i remember you...
Of course I remember you! I'm not sure if you'll get this reply, so I'll look for you on Facebook. It's so good to hear from you, and I'm really honored that you'd look for me and want me to teach you reiki. I do hope to do a distance course, so maybe we can work something out.

Off to find you & write a better reply...
