4 quarters are greater than 100 pennies.

My mom repeatedly told me these 7 words.

“4 quarters are greater than 100 pennies, Chimara”, she said with great confidence, assured that I understood what she meant. I didn’t. These words were wise and inspiring, but they could only be understood through experience. I had to learn the true value of friendship.

4 quarters are greater than 100 pennies. 

I used to think that I was important because I was so well-known. I didn’t know everyone, but everyone seems to know me. I felt proud about that. Little did I know, the popularity that I was so proud could be fleeting and just because people knew you, did not mean that they were for you.

4 quarters are greater than 100 pennies.

When I look around and see the true friendships that I have, I see fewer and fewer people by the day, and I am okay with that! I rather have a few great friends that pour an overwhelming amount of love and support in my life than have dozens of superficial friends.

Having 4 quarters may not give me the same feeling of holding 100 pennies, but the value of the 4 quarters will forever outrank them.

4 quarters are greater than 100 pennies.

Seek friendships that don’t give you a great quantity, but an outstanding quality of people to ride the rollercoaster of life with.

Life is too short to be collecting pennies. Seek out some qualities quarters and learn the true value of friendship!

Seek true friends and don’t forget to…

Pass the Salt!
