I am blessed with some of the world's greatest people.
I actually think if there was some sort of weird competition, I might just win.
I have been blessed with people who have been with me through thick and thin. They are irreplaceable. Family and friends (who have become like family).
I have also been blessed with people who have come into my life the last few years because of this blog, support groups, and difficult circumstances. They, too, are irreplaceable and have become like family.
It's strange how humans can just connect- a connection that seems almost destined.
When I stop and truly think about it, I am surrounded by some amazing human beings.
The other day I asked some girlfriends of mine to help me with a project. They stepped way out of their comfort zone and took time out of their lives to help me with something (which you will be seeing soon I hope!).
After the project was done, I text my girlfriends, thanking them profusely and asked them how it went.
I got this response back from one of the women:
"You have an AMAZING network of people."
I responded with:
"Seriously. I do feel very blessed... Amazing people are all around and you are one of them. And it's all because of what I went through. I would never change it."
She wrote back and said:
"I was just thinking that today, too. The most amazing people have come from these hard experiences."
It seems like every single day, I am meeting the most compassionate and passionate of people. People who are real. People who are totally and utterly real. People who are open, people who are kind, people who are just trying to figure life out, without putting on any sort of show.
There's something about it.
Something I just can't put my finger on when it happens.
But it almost feels magical when those special people come into your life; the ones you know you'll keep forever. You may not talk everyday... you may not be BFF's... you may have totally different experiences and ideas... you may live hundreds of miles apart.... but that person brightens your day, and makes you want to be a better person... and you cannot deny that you were supposed to connect.
I am surrounded by truly great people; men and women, alike. I'm not exactly sure how this all came to be... I'm not exactly sure why things happen the way they do... I'm not sure I am worthy of such beautiful people....
All I know is that my people are my biggest blessings.
People are what make it all worth it.
People are the point of it all.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend with your people: big and small, family and friends, far and wide. Enjoy them :)
