Day 9: The Importance of Friends

I am a very lucky person. I am not shy and because of this everywhere I've lived I've been able to meet a lot of people. Meeting people is one of my favorite things to do in the world, and so far I've been very blessed. My Facebook friend counter is pretty high to prove it,(jaja) ,and although I’m sure there are people out there who don’t like me I can usually fit into any group. I have been blessed by so many chances to meet new people under many different circumstances, giving me the opportunity to learn so much on how to be better person.

I have learned, that courage can wear the latest trends or the dirtiest rags, that laughter can come in a suit, that hugs are always better when freely given and that having people to love is the best thing in  the world. This is a love note to every friend I have, I don’t feel like I have to name names because you know who you are. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life, I love you.

Every friend plays a different role but all are important. I have the elementary-high school friends that keep me grounded by reminding me that they have material to blackmail for they knew me when I was going through the awkward stage. Then I have the friends I met during my college years that met an improved version of my high school self but that still have enough on me to ruin my life if they wanted to; Just kidding.   The friends that knew you way back when, are the ones you usually don’t talk to everyday, or party with all the time, but when a crisis strikes they are the first ones you run to and it’s as easy as it use to be before “the real world” came along.

Then there are the random people that come into your life through a chance meeting. They are friends of the cousin of the sister of the girl you use to room with. Those are the magic surprises life brings into your life. People that you can’t ever imagine not having in your life even if you’ve only known each other for a year or so. People were the connection was so automatic and intense it feels like you’ve known them forever.

I have both types of friends and the fact that I can count on all of them for anything makes me a one of the richest human beings in this world.

This is a note of thanks for all the laughter we’ve shared, all the tears you’ve put up with, all the loud squeals when something good happens, all the shared hopes and all the secrets fears. Thank you for your support, especially in the past year, when at times I thought I’d never get out of the black hole I was in. If it wasn’t for your constant love and support I don’t know if I would’ve made it out as happy and at peace as I am today. Thank You.
