Friendship is the bread of life…
But money is the honey.
I’ve always been blessed with amazing friends in my life. Unfortunately, I didn’t always appreciate it the way that I should have. I remember a time when I was obsessed with the idea of popularity, mainly when I was in grade school/junior high/high school. I wasn’t one of the popular kids. I never showed up in candid photos in the yearbook, nor was I ever selected “Most.” I felt this “lack” keenly. I’m embarrassed to admit that I spent years fretting about this sort of thing and feeling unhappy about it. Oh, woe!
And yet, all during that time, I had friends. Good friends. Friends I could count on. Friends that I hung out with. Friends that still care about me to this day. It makes me mad at myself that I didn’t see how priceless that was. How it so enriched my life with a meaning that would go far, far beyond popularity. It’s funny when you are a kid—school is your whole world, and it’s almost impossible to imagine that it’s just a blip.
I’m also fortunate that I came to realize the value of friends when I got older. I will never, ever take friendship for granted ever again.
A big thank you to all of the friends I have in my life, with a special shout out to my synchronicity girls.
