My friends mean the world to me and in the last year I have fallen in solidly and completely with my ‘tribe’; people who get me and I get them, and we are incredibly comfortable with each other.
Even friendships I thought were ‘great’ before have been strengthened and these friendships have enriched my life in ways I cannot tell you.
What is apparent to me, is how non-judgemental and supportive of each other we are. If my friends are happy, I am happy, it’s as simple as that.
We laugh and we act silly, and we support and encourage each other and that’s the way it should be. Anything less is not worth supporting and I mean that in the nicest way. Time is so precious and our lives so special, it makes sense to hang out with those who light you up, not put out your flame.
As I said to someone today, my friends range from the creative, the strong willed, the quiet, the peaceful, the fiery, the geeky, and everything in between and on either side. In other words, they offer me balance. They all share something in common, along with me, a love of life and an ability to always look on the bright side of life, whatever, life throws at you.
