If you asked me a year ago, or even 8 months ago if I would ever write this post, I would have said no. Why? Because I hadn’t found what I was looking for. I wasn’t content at where my life was. Friendship changed my life and it is something I really want to share because I am sure I’m not the only one who has been through these struggles and highly benefits from having a real strong group of friends.
I have had many friends come through my life and while some of them ended poorly all of them served a purposed and allowed me to learn something about myself. When I think about what I learned from each person I don’t think there is really a person I regret being friends with. The biggest thing I focus is is where I am now.
I now have 5 best friends who were made to be in my life, I have started referring to all of them as my 5 and its kinda funny that some friends and my parents are now catching onto that too. I think what I love most about my 5 is that none of them are connected they are all separate from each other but each of them mean the world to me. I can already tell just by the type of people they are that even though they aren’t connected they will get along together. I can’t wait to make that happen this summer.
I look back at the person I was 8 months ago and I think wow you were missing out on life, my friends have 100% changed my life in countless amazing ways. I am so much happier, I love the life I live everyday, I don’t dread going back to school I get excited because I know three of my girls are waiting for me on this side. The thought of leaving for the summer is devastating not having them so close by, but that just means more adventures to come.
I never understood how powerful friendship could be until I found these girls and I honestly feel like I am living in a dream. Sure being so happy and discovering a new side of myself is fantastic but it has certainly brought up its own changes and challenges that I am working through myself but I know that all these things are only allowing my life to reach the potential its meant to, and that makes me really excited.
I look at photos taken recently and it makes me how my heart warms seeing the smile on my face, it is more genuine and honest then ever, I love my friends with all my heart, I would give the world for them. I will never be able to express just how much they mean to me, I am the luckiest person in the world.
Over the next couple of weeks I will be sharing a blog post about each of my 5 girls and it will be more of an open letter to them about our friendship. I am really excited to share this!
So with that I leave you to think about who you need in your life and remember do not give up if you don’t have the right people in your life, it took me 20 years to find the right people and I have 5 of them you might have 2 or 7 who knows its different for each person but I urge you to keep searching for the right people, you will see once I share all the posts of my girls that not all of us became friends right away. But hey thats the magic of life, once I found all of them this urge or desire inside of me subsided and I felt like I had everything I needed, and I encourage you to find that.
