One of the greatest joys in life is the people we share it with — and the friendships we build
Did you know studies have shown that people with stronger social relationships or those with a larger circle of close friends tend to live longer?
Our friends are our support system, our cheerleaders and our reality checks. A good friend will look out for you and be there through the good and the bad.
It’s important to have friends with whom we can share our thoughts, secrets and desires — people who won’t judge us and who will offer honest advice. Those are true friends.
To have great friends, you need to be a good friend. We get what we give in relationships. And in true Scentsy fashion, we should give more than we take. Offer support, a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on — whatever is needed.
At Scentsy, we’re all about relationships: forming connections with customers and fellow Consultants, meeting new people, building friendships based on trust, and spending time with people we care about. Friendship is the center of every Scentsy party. It’s what brings people together. It’s what keeps people coming back. Friendship is good for the soul.
Over the past 13 years, Scentsy has grown into an international company, and a lifetime of friendships have been built.
On Sunday, July 30, 2017, we celebrate those friendships with International Day of Friendship
The United Nations declared the first International Day of Friendship in 2011, stating, “… friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and presents an opportunity to build bridges between communities, honoring cultural diversity.”
With the prevalence of social media and our desire to stay connected with friends and loved ones, the holiday has increased in popularity over the years.
So take this day to celebrate friendships, both old and new. Let your friends know you appreciate them with a text, a call, a letter, a gift or even a post on social media. A little love goes a long way. And our friends are worth it.
“Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.” – Woodrow Wilson
