Sometimes you put walls up, not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down.” ~ Socrates

I am incredibly grateful to have some pretty amazing friends.

Which is a real blessing because my family is 3,000 miles away and they have had to fill in at some pretty hairy moments in my life when my family couldn’t be there in person to carry me through.

My friends would tell you that they think I work hard to maintain our friendships. I don’t. Every ounce of time and energy I give to my friends I do for me.

I need them.

And I spend time with them whether it’s in person or on the phone or exchanging emails because I get something huge from having them in my life.

I get to live my truth.
