My friends are my life. They are extended family. I’m closer my friends than I am with family. My friends know almost everything about me. It’s sad how I’m closer to certain friends that know more about me than my own family.
I go to the ends of the earth and back again for my friends. They know when I’m hurt, when I’m mad, when I’m disappointed, when I’m happy, when I’m verge of crying… they know it because they been there for me when no one else was. They were the ones that stayed when everyone else left.
I show my friends how much I appreciate them time and time again. I’ll buy us a round of drinks at the bar, or show up with presents at lunch, text them to say I’m thinking about them; just stupid small stuff like that. I value all my friendships because they don’t hurt me that way I’ve been hurt by past romantic relationships.
I don’t have many guy friends, but I have a ton of girl friends. We all support each other’s dreams, goals, and want the best for each other. We all try to live a healthy lifestyle of clean eating and working out. We do yoga relies together, run 5ks together, go to the gym together, and hike on the weekends together in the Philadelphia area. I’m so excited and proud of all of my girlfriends. Even my best friend is starting the healthy lifestyle kick! She bought her first South Beach diet book and meal prepped with her boyfriend last night! Nicole, I’m so proud of you.
I was never one of those girls who looks for relationships. Yet, God has a way of bringing people into our lives that are met to be there for a reason, a season, or a lifetime . Some friends come into our life for a reason, some for a season, and some for a ifetime…
Cheers to the girlfriends I have now who I wholeheartedly believe they will be in my life for a lifetime!
As always, kisses on the peace sign fingers and love…
