Day 10: Best Friend

Hi, folks. How's Wednesday treating you? It snowed today for the first time! It makes me excited for big, fluffy blankets and hot chocolate (dairy-free, of course).

When I checked what today's challenge was, I immediately thought "oh I can't do it! I'm not around anyone I love!" And then I thought...wait a second. Of course I am.

Let me tell you about my best friend. I can go to her about anything, and she's been there through thick and thin. Although she hasn't always been nice to me and I haven't been nice to her, we always talk it through and come out closer than before. We sing together, laugh together, cry together, dance together, and do 10-minute cardio videos together when we don't feel like going to yoga. Whenever I feel pulled in every direction by everyone's opinion, she reminds me that I am intrinsically valuable without anyone else's input. If it was just me, here by myself, I would still be whole and complete. I try to remind her of the same because often she is telling others that but not believing it of herself.

She is a deep thinker and an overanalyzer to the utmost degree, which I think is why we get along so well. But it can put both of us in difficult places when we try to read people's minds and use those fake thoughts to build ourselves up or put ourselves down. She is kind, giving and genuine. And she's always excited to make someone laugh. She always tries to see the good in people and situations, which helps me be more optimistic when I'm having tough days. I trust her wholeheartedly and learn from her every day. I couldn't imagine living this life with anyone else.

Goodnight, friends. :)
