Apparently, yesterday (8th of June) was National Best Friend’s Day so I thought it would be nice to write a post to remember and thank my best friends through the years.
I recently scrapped the idea that you can only have one best friend. It was limiting and in actual fact, I had many good friends who are all important to me and who all the deserve the label of ‘best friend’.
Growing up I never had many friends, I was very shy and never approached anyone unless talked to.
Today, I want to thank the one friend who broke my shell and helped me shine through with confidence. I believe that meeting her was life changing for me, the course of my whole life changed because I was transformed as a person. I was finally not afraid to be me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me everything by just being you.
Next, to the friends that listen and give me logical and honest advice – you help me out of the deepest of wells by giving nothing but an ear.
To the friends, whom I can talk for hours about everything but people – you are gems, you inspire me and show me the goodness in this world. Just by communicating your thoughts and ideas about the world, not the individual people in it.
To the friends who are far, but feel so close – how we manage to bridge continents and have a solid relationship, is beyond me. Not everyone can find the time to tend to those who are not physically present – for that you are special.
To the friends who I can have countless adventures with, whether it is travelling, hikes or visiting the newest cafes, thank you for sharing your wanderlust with me.
To my boyfriend for being all those friends in one – I appreciate every moment.
And lastly, to my sisters, who were my first best friends, who will continue to always be now and forever.
Happy National BestFriend Day!
5 things I am grateful for today:
The Sun – you came out today, and you decided to stay, shining through my window and warming up my room!
Leaves – I just love looking at leaves in the wind, it is so calming.
All my friends!
Past self – I often find that my past self is a lot more organised than I give her credit for, making the self now have less work!
The library – you are so warm and calm!
