“You know what I’ve discovered? It’s not who you want to spend Friday night with, it’s who you want to spend all day Saturday with.” – Tommy Bollinger
I’ve been known to watch “Friends with Benefits” fairly often. I’m in love with the movie. Before putting it on tonight, I decided to go to a yoga class after work. I found myself crying in Savasana again. I suppose a girl needs a good cry every so often.
I was in rare form this past week in a very good way. I was bouncing off the walls with energy. I think this energy can be translated as happiness. I am just plain happy. I’ve come to the realization. I am happy in the moment in my everyday life. I was feeling overwhelmed and so pumped about life that I almost didn’t know what to do with myself.
I am grateful for everyone in my world. Right now I am thinking about one friend in particular. We have been friends for over six years. We’ve always stayed in touch even though we didn’t live that close to one another for some time. He moved into the city this past spring. It was almost a blessing in disguise looking back. It is true how everything happens for a reason. He’s been an over-the-top supportive friend. He has definitely seen me at my worst. He has seen me at my best. Whenever I need him, he’s there for me. When I’m complaining about how I look, he tells me I’m perfect as I am. When I repeat myself one thousand times discussing the same issue, he listens. He’s the kind of person you want in your life. He cares about me for who I am as a person – flaws and all.
He said something the other day that struck a chord. He told me that he finally sees the Kristy he always knew all along. He could see that I am back. You know, he’s right. I am back. I have this incredible zest for life.
I also know how important it is to surround myself with only good people in my life. Those that will pick me up when I’m down, and will stand by my side through anything and everything.
My girlfriend shared the below with me. Have a great weekend.
