I meant to have this post up right before Christmas but then life happened. I wanted to send a message right before the holidays but you know what, you don’t need the holidays to remind you that life really is wonderful.
When I was younger I thought having more meant more. I wanted more toys, candies, food, clothes, shoes, and friends. As I get older, I realized the importance of quality over quantity. The more I value quality, the better relationships I gained especially in friendship.
I can’t help but think about middle school and high school and how much I wanted more friends. I always felt like I had to ‘keep up’ to maintain my friendships. It was exhausting. Nowadays I keep my inner circle small, as long as I have a few good (real) friends, I am the happiest girl. I truly value the relationship I have with my best friend. I like to think we are each other’s inner thought’s voice. Plus, I love borrowing her clothes haha!

We can probably talk on about everything from boys, clothes, celebrities, and our latest obsessions, Korean skincare. What I love about our relationship is that even though we are busy doing our own thing, I know she will always be there for me. Whenever we can catch up, we pick back up right where we left off. What’s great is that we don’t always have to agree. We have our differences in opinion. However, we respect each other. There’s no judgement. If anything, I learned to be more open minded. That to me is the definition of a true friendship. A friendship that is basically the definition of a family. Not only will I always be there for her, I definitely will be there for her family. My family thinks the same way of Steph. No matter what happens, we are always there for each other.
The reason why I brought this topic up is sometimes we can get caught up with the ‘stresses’ in life. We forget to say thank you to the people who try to make your life easier and have your back without hesitation. As we embark into the new year, I hope you all take the time to appreciate and be grateful for who is in your life. Each day is a blessing and a lot of that has to do with the good people in your life.
Hope you all have a happy Monday!
