I’m not exactly sure what to write about today. But coming here and writing is just so….. stress relieving. I never would have imagined it, to be honest. I read someone’s blog post last night about not necessarily having to write about anything in particular, but just to write. I don’t necessarily have to be saying something at all. I don’t have to tell a story, or get my point across on any one subject. It just feels good to be sitting here, doing this. It feels right. And with that, I have the motivation to just keep going….
I have a friend. A really really good friend. She’s currently going through a divorce. And while I’ve always known how smart and wonderful she truly is, I didn’t know the extent of her bravery until recently. She’s got a wonderful job and now lives in Washington, D.C. Left everything behind – the good, the bad, and the ugly. I’m so proud of her, and I’m so very grateful to not only know her, but to have her be a part of my every day life. It’s like when you feel that sister-like bond with someone. Someone who isn’t family by blood, but by heart. Which, to me, is so much more potent. It’s real. It’s being linked, connected in such a way that’s so deep it’s unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. This is someone who has seen me at my worst, and has still loved me. Someone who has never taken where I’ve been or what I’ve gone through and held it against me. Yet, she’s someone who was able to just get to know me and love me for who I am. Flaws and imperfections. All of it. It’s someone that I have never had to hide from. I know that no matter where I end up in life, or what I may or may not do, she’s going to be there for me. She’s always a call or a text away. She gives me hope. She motivates me. She’s so strong and positive regardless of the things she’s going through. She’s a fighter, she’s a winner. And I only hope that one day, I can be half the woman that she is. Keep on keepin’ on. I love you dear friend.
