As many of you already know, I am a very sentimental person with lots of love to share. I feel I am so lucky and fortunate to have so many wonderful friends and family, and my heart bursts thinking about all of the incredible people in my life.
We support and love each other unconditionally.
We help each other to stay positive when life gets rough and together we roll through the good and the bad times in our lives.
We celebrate our victories.
We talk about our dreams. We encourage each other to reach towards our dreams.
We learn more about ourselves more and more each day and develop into the people we were meant to be. We begin to learn that we shape our own destiny and that the only person holding us back from our dreams is ourselves and our own self-doubt.
When distance keeps us apart and we are able to reconnect, we act like no time has passed and pick up right where we left off.
We push each other outside of our comfort zones to help each other grow.
We watch The Bachelorette “together” but in separate houses and some of us in different time zones and call it a girls’ night so that we can feel like we are hanging out together.
We remind ourselves that everything happens for a reason when life doesn’t go as planned and that it will all work out in the end.
The bonds of friendship are extremely strong. They hold up to life’s demands, distance, and time. I know no matter what life brings me, I will be able to get through it with the help of friends and family, and I feel so lucky to be able to say that.
I am not one to be shy about saying “I Love You.” If I feel it, I will say it. You never know which day will be your last, so make sure you tell the people you love just how much you love them.
To all of my friends and family: I love you all so much and am so blessed to have each and every one of you in my life. Thank you for loving me entirely and sharing your lives with me.
