Recently, I witnessed a beautiful speech by a man toasting his neighbor of nearly 30 years, who was retiring. As a past rock climber, the “toaster” likened friendship to climbing …noting that he chooses his friends based on who he wants holding his rope during a difficult climb. My jaw hit the floor, because it was such a simple analogy yet so powerful. As we get older, we choose more wisely don’t we? And the friends we have, the small circle we intentionally design around us, means the world to us.  I have a handful to people holding my rope, and they know I have theirs.

Who’s rope are you holding? Who has yours? You’re a good friend, I can tell. You have their backs, and they have yours. When life gets tough, you’re there. And so is Centerpoint! We’re a good friend too. Centerpoint is recommended by friends all over this planet- and we’re proud of that. It touches my heart when I see friends/ spouses joning our Introductory Sessions for support. We love when you recommend Centerpoint to your circle, and we take it seriously.  You’re a good friend to Centerpoint too, and we thank you!

Now go hug your friends.
