growing up

This post is kind of a love letter to all of my amazing friends. It's a little all over the place but thats okay, I'm a scattered kind of person. 

My boyfriend has a core group of friends and they have all been best friends for well over 10 years, they have moved away from each other but remain to be the closest friends and it's something that I admire dearly. Over the last few years I have lost touch with a lot of old friendships, I took it very hard for many years but I am finally at a point in my life where I am okay with it. It happens, you grow up or you change and it just doesn't work out. No one is really at fault its just a part of life. Since I started dating Brent one big thing that his friends have always done for me is always making me feel welcome. Since day one his friends have been nothing but big brothers to me and it's difficult to describe how much these men really mean to me. They are my best friends and I can literally go to them about anything, even bitching about Brent. Granted they never really take my side but they're always there to listen and make me feel better. I think its funny how sometimes certain people can leave such big impressions in your life and I am so thankful that Brent has people like that in his life. 

Last night Catina and I met up with Gimena in Toronto, we had a girls night out and guys I can't remember the last time I had that much fun in a club. Good friends are so so so hard to come by but I found myself some solid gems. These girls are my rocks, they inspire me to be better, they're honest and when I'm out of line or being ridiculous they are not afraid to tell me so. I have known Catina for 12 years we have always been great friends, I honestly feel like we have both kept each other sane over the things that life throws at us. Its funny how we've always been best friends but in these last five years she has become a sister to me. I've only known Gimena for almost three years and it's crazy how quickly she became a sister to me, this woman has whipped me into shape so many times and if it weren't for her I'd be lost in life she truly is a ray of sunshine and one of the best things to ever come into my life. The three of us together are a force of nature. I swear when I am with these two girls my life brightens up so much and my happiness meter goes crazy. I have the most fun and laughs with them and I just love them with all my heart. 

I have noticed over the last few years that in life having a ton of friends just isn't important anymore. All that matters are the people who are real and there for you under any circumstance. Having close friends who care about you, who take the time to reach out when life gets busy or who just buy you chocolate because they know you love it. Those are the friends I keep around and will always cherish. 

I love you guys. Each and every one of you, thank you for making my life a good one.
