Reify 8&21

Welcome to your 3-minute pause. Let's focus on your practice of pursuing awesome.



The elasticity of friendship

Think of the friends who were there for you this year—maybe not in person, but in an encouraging text, a call of support, or even just a constant GIF swap on Instagram. Pretty incredible how friendships adapt. 

“Sometimes being a friend means mastering the 

art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to 

let go and allow people to hurl themselves into 

their own destiny. And a time to prepare to 

pick up the pieces when it's all over.”


- Gloria Naylor, in her debut 1983 novel, 
The Women of Brewster Place



Investing in Friends

Research has shown that friendships can create a powerful pain-killing effect so strong it beats even morphine. 



Resiliency and Friendship

We show resilience in our friendships by being there, even when—especially when—times are toughest. 
(Even if “there” is on Zoom.)

“As a friend, you show resilience by walking through it with her.” 

- Reify Conversation participant
