It’s about QUALITY not QUANTITY.

I’m very picky with whom I give my energy to in my life and friends are no exception. As time goes on your circle decreases in size but it increases in value. Be with the people who know your worth. You don’t need too many people to be happy, just a few real ones who appreciate who you are.

The blunt friend…

She never shit talks me, if she has something to say I can count on her to lay it on me straight because talking behind her friend’s back just isn’t in her nature. She holds truth to the highest standard, but sometimes what she has to say isn’t what I always want to hear but it’s what I need to hear. She cracks me up every single day and how blessed was I to work with her by my side for 18 months. We can always have meaningful and nurturing discussions, if that wasn’t enough we would always have the most unforgettable nights out. This amazing girl has shown me that it is okay to stand up for myself and we support one another through the good and the bad without ever taking the other for granted.

The one who’s been around for a two decades…

We are comfortable with each other’s silence, we finish each other’s sentences and we go on trips of a lifetime together. The snapchats get uglier as time goes on, she knows all the deepest darkest secrets and she is the one my future hubby has to win over. She has been my therapist for more years than I can count and driving to one another’s house at midnight to comfort all the tears is never a burden. We have too many crazy stories that when they get retold we can’t speak, we just die of laughter. I can tell her anything without being judged. She’s the girl who has been through it all with me and still teaches me to never be afraid of love.

The girl who walked into my life and instantly we clicked…

Sometimes you meet a person through a friend or a boyfriend one night at a party and you just immediately click. This girl is a rare gem, cherish her! You’re comfortable with her like you’ve known each other your whole life and you don’t have to pretend to be anyone or anything you’re not. She is fierce, strong-willed and my voice of reason. We can go weeks without speaking or months without seeing each other, but when we do, we pick up like we just saw one another 3 days ago. She is my motivator and keeps me pumped to tackle whatever comes my way.

The sister I never had…

The day we were going meet I was so scared of her and I wanted to make a good impression, she was my boyfriend’s closest family member and yeah I wanted to win her over. The day we met, I knew she would play an important role in my life and has stuck by me for 8 years. Good friends with good hearts serve an incredible purpose in our lives and she is one of those. She needs me and I need her, spending time together goes way too quick. We don’t share the same genetic makeup but after all the sleep overs, heart to hearts, nights out and paying bills until our bank accounts cry, how could I not consider her family. She’s the one that if I murdered someone, I’d call to help me drag the corpse across the living room floor.

I’m forever grateful for these chicks and I say to everyone else out there if you want to find out who’s a true friend, screw up or go through a challenging time and then see who sticks around. It’s because of these truly amazing girls, I laugh a little harder, cry a little less and smile a lot more.
