Thankful Thursday

Shaking off the negative, as it’s time to embrace the positive once again! Oh yes, taking a page from There’s Just OneMommy once again for a ‘Thankful Thursday’ post! Life is full of ups and downs, but it’s important (at least in my opinion) to take the time to remind ourselves of all the little things we have to be grateful for. Now I do swear this week has flown by. I swear it was just yesterday I wasn’t writing about yoga, but my last ‘Thankful Thursday’ post, but that is not going to slow me down from counting my blessings this week.

My friends are what I am thankful for today. Life is not all sunshine and rainbows, so it’s good to have people you can lean on when it all gets cloudy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m blessed in the family department as well, but this week it’s about my friends. My four core friendships that keep me going. They keep me motivated and let me lean on them when I need it. Of course they also know they can lean on me as well. Its equal opportunity friendships with these ladies and I couldn’t feel luckier with them.

Granted we all hit our ups and downs with one another, hello being human, but really if not for my four core friends. I can only hope that others out there have the sort of friendships I do. The kinds you can feel secure in and relax in. The kinds that you can let all your walls fall down when you are with them (be it one or four or more) and just be yourself completely. Embrace your best friend(s) today. Embrace them for all they are and give them a hug!

  1. Friends are definitely important!
    I love hanging out with my best friend -- we don't get to do it often, but it makes the weight of the world disappear, if only for a little while.

    Thanks so much for linking up! Great post!
