Is 2014 the year of all your dreams come true?!? That’s what it’s felt like, so far!
While our family is having a crazy love affair with Leo Wolfe, I am also having a very satisfying love affair with my tribe of amazing ladies. I’ve always had a few gems in my life, but never this many real [mature + loving] friendships where I know I am supported all hours of the day. I do have two ladies that have been my riders since I was a child, and they do feel like sisters to me. But I don’t have a “blood” sister, so I am overwhelmed with gratitude for my love-tribe of incredible women that love me like I’m their blood!
I am freaking loving friendship in my thirties!
This morning, I read this, and my heart sank- thinking about moms being mean to + judging other moms. I am sure there are plenty of haters out there, but I’ve gotten pretty selective in the last few years + have consciously surrounded myself with lovers [especially since becoming a mama. Ain't got time for that shit!]. Every unproductive friendship [& I actually had a few] has thankfully disintegrated because I stopped nurturing those relationships.
In the last month though, it’s like the stars have perfectly aligned, almost every one of my friendships has intensified with more love + support for one another + gotten even more real! Old friendships are more beautiful than ever. And [thanks to social media for putting me in contact with some of my newest + dearest friends] my new friendships have gotten even better. Most of us are relentlessly pursuing a healthy lifestyle for ourselves + our families, and there’s a lot of encouragement that gets thrown around all day. I, honestly, could not ask for more. I keep picturing myself wearing 20+ halves of those split-heart best friend necklaces. hehe.
Cheers to real + supportive friendships! I don’t deserve my love-tribe, and I am humbled by their love + support they give me, every day. I love my tribe deeply with my ruthless cancer loyalty! This valentine’s, my heart is overflowing with love!
