I recently met up with a friend in New York City. She and I go back all the way to college and I was a bridesmaid in her wedding which took place in Brazil. This month, we added to all those amazing times we’ve already had together in life, and the entire time felt like LoA at work.
On a rainy morning that felt like magic because we always have a brilliant time together, I arrived to her hotel in Times Square. After a very long chat session in her room, because we needed to catch up on so much, we saw her mother-in-law and went downstairs for breakfast with her son. Deciding to proceed to the American Museum of Natural History, she remembered we were entitled to free tickets from the hotel, and after picking them up, we jumped into a cab and were on our way.
When we got out of the cab just next to Central Park, the line to enter the museum seemed endless – yet as soon as we got in it, that same line practically dissolved. Her son was entertaining us with questions the entire time, and his understanding of her elaborate but interesting answers showed me one of the fun sides of being a parent. I was reminded of every time my mother told me that she loved our conversation and that every parent loves knowing what’s on their kids’ minds; mothers truly enjoy conversing with their children and discovering what their personalities are like.
We entered the museum at the end of that rapidly dissolving line and were told to wait at the end of the ticket line because we weren’t entitled to a children’s ticket from the hotel. However, I noticed the ticket machines on the side and suggested we use them. We tried and realized it was a defective machine, upon which a staff member approached us, told us he would take care of it and proceeded to take us to the front of the line! We were on our way in very soon, feeling wonderful.
Returning to the hotel afterwards, we started making plans for lunch. Opting for sushi (vegan sushi in my case), we found a place and were able to finally sit down for some uninterrupted girl talk. I still remember how good that lunch felt after a few hours of walking around the museum, and I remember how great it was to talk about all our hopes and dreams for the future of our lives.
After lunch, she was excited to go shopping and a few hours later, we met her mother-in-law and several other relatives for dinner. Two members of her husband’s family who were not around for their wedding came to dinner, and I particularly enjoyed getting to know them. At the end of the night, we made plans to meet again and I stayed over at the hotel.
The next day, we said bye. The visit was wonderful and afterwards, I took a little walk around NYC in its heavenly, early October weather. Even the hotel room coffee was tasty and we’d had a great girl dinner with six amazing ladies the previous night; spending time in great company always raises my vibration and makes me manifest rapidly because the people I particularly like bring out the best in me. My friend’s son, a great buddy himself, let us have our fun while he entertained himself with games.
Now, why was the manifestation of such a beautiful day with my friend effortless? Because we love being together, genuinely enjoy each other’s company, and always have fun and laugh together. We love spending time with each other. When you like being with someone, you will attract some very amusing times. And you know why?
You can just choose to enjoy being around people, no matter who they are – this is a way to start feeling good about the people you want to attract and keep.
I’ve heard many people say they don’t feel relaxed around the person they want to be with, or with their own thoughts about that person. When they think about being with the one they want, many just don’t feel comfortable. The reason could be their mutual past or it could be a current feeling of inadequacy; either way, nobody should feel as if not good enough for someone else.
We should simply say,
“I can have fun with anyone.”
“I can enjoy spending time with anyone.”
“I love being with this person because [insert reasons – look for them if you have to].”
And, don’t forget,
“Anyone has an amazing time just talking to me – I’m smart and fun, and I touch people’s hearts.” Because that is how we feel around our friends, and when a person we’re interested in makes us feel this way, we begin to form a deep connection.
When you start to feel good around or with your thoughts of someone, it will be easy to visualize them in your life because we always feel good with the thought of those who make us happy.

You are very lucky to have such a good friend and you made some good points here. I envy you, because I’ve never been a bridesmaid but I have been a bride. I don’t really have close friends (it bothers me and hurts to even write that) but I spend time with those who give me the time of day. Often, I’m left feeling like I need to please people which gets exhausting. I feel like if I’m more picky about who I allow to be friends, that I will end up with no friends. I also feel like I don’t have the ability to be picky at this stage in my life, which is quite sad really.
Lately, I’ve decided that I will only allow things into my life that spark joy or give me positive energy. As for the negative energy, I will put it out with an extinguisher right away. Negative energy creeps up into our lives when we don’t want it, so knowing how to let it go is a good step towards finding inner peace and happiness. 🧘♀️🌱
I admire you so much for these honest words, Hilary. And I am so grateful that you have shared this! Your new mindset will transform your life. By letting in joy, happiness and positivity, we give ourselves what we truly deserve.
thank you for sharing i can relate to that because i too have very close friends and even though we don’t see each other often because of work, distance or whatever it might be we still have that connection as it was back in high school when we met. we are now in our late 30’s and still we have so much fun and we laugh and laugh. But also i feel the love and the warmth from them and i know they feel it for me too. we don’t need to have tons of friends the people that matter will stick around and they will stay for a life time and that its what matters.

Exactly! I love it. When we have already stuck around certain people for a long time and our relationship has been great, we don’t give up on them! I love this.
