Once again I'm combining two prompts: revise and what you look for in friends.
I used to wish I had friends that were cool. Ones who knew all the hip restaurants. Ones who watch the same tv shows as I do. Ones who wanted to do cool things like my city's monthly art crawl.
But I got something better. I started going to my church's book club and I got to know some really genuine people. Ones who are awesome cooks and have served me meals better than any restaurant. Ones who tell me about tv shows I've never watched. Ones who bring me so much joy every month when we get together.
These people have changed what I look for in friends. I now look for people with strength, courage, and leadership, just like the lion symbolizes. And I have found exactly those kinds of friends in my book club. I am so glad that I revised what I was looking for, I'm so much better for it.
