Q is for quality not quantity…

20 Apr

When I was younger I assumed it was the quantity of things that made your life great. I had to have all the sneakers and clothes imaginable. Now I rarely go to the mall and although I still buy sneakers it’s not with the same fervor.

When I started working in the social work field I often saw clients and students with just enough clothing or shoes. Sometimes I even met some without enough. Gradually over time I began to see that it’s quality over quantity that mattered.

The same thing with friends. It’s not the number of friends you have but the quality of the ones you hold dear. I have many acquaintances but my real friend list is not that big. Focus on what matters…

    I also don’t buy as much. I think working in a field like social work, you see poverty every day (I used to work for an agency that did foster care and adoption).

      Foster care and adoption are tough. Social work doesn’t seem to get easier!
