This one goes out to... YOU
The past few weeks have been extremely uplifting, promising and just plain great. I know people hate to hear that because after all "people gonna talk whether you doin' bad or good...eyyyy". But whatever...MY past few weeks have been awesome. Part of it has been my attitude and outlook, part of it has been due to people that have been on my team when I've really needed them there, part of it because I realize who those people are and the difference between that type and the type that ultimately just hold me back from...whatever. So...this post is dedicated to you...and you....and you..........and you, and you. *Mascara alert*
This one goes out to...
YOU because no matter where I've been or where I was trying to go...no matter who I was with, what I was rambling, smiling, crying or writing about...you've always been the one to know me the best and have always been there when I just need to vent, want to celebrate something, or just sit, do nothing and be ridiculous. It's been this way for over a decade now and I doubt it will ever change....and that...is effing awesome.
YOU because no matter what...you always have and always will be my friend. You've proven you're always there for me no matter what and always manage to make time no matter how hectic your life is at that moment. A true friend indeed. You're great. Never let ANYONE tell you any different. If they try to...well you already know...Fuck 'em. They're not worth the time of day. Or a face lick.
YOU because OMFG you are pure amazingness!! You're my sunshine, my dance partner, my cheerleader and my friend. You're probably the most sincere person I know. Your spirits stay high no matter the situation, you find all the good in everything...and you've shown me that we DO have the secret.
YOU because you have been there for me time and time again and never judged me or made me feel embarrassed, ashamed or pitiful for needing help. You motivate me, encourage me to reach for the stars and know that I CAN do it all and it will pay off in the end. I consider you one of my guardian angels on earth and I'm glad to have you on my team.
YOU because you make me laugh SO much I forget anything is ever wrong. We have so much in common it's borderline ridiculous but I like it. You understand me, look out for me, make fun of me ( as I do you)...and every time we get to hang out there is never a dull moment. Some people aren't lucky enough to have friends like you..but I'm lucky enough to know you and have you in my life.
YOU because you make me feel gorgeous with such ease that it's astonishing. You are the definition of hard work and no matter how high you rise you always maintain a grounded energy-no matter what comes out of your mouth. You're smart, funny, ridiculous and focused all in one shiny, Louis Vuitton-draped ball of fabulous.
YOU because you've made me learn so much about myself and what I do and don't want. I now know what it means for someone's true feelings to come out when they're angry or vulnerable...and over time what the difference is between caring and controlling. You've helped me grow and understand what it means to be my own person and I thank you for that.
YOU because even though you're crazy as hell you've come a long way and you're there for me when I need you without question or hesitation. It's in your blood to look out for your people and I'm glad to be one of them.
and last but not least...
YOU because you're just simply a great friend. You're silly, you're nerdy (like me)..and you could give a shit less what anyone thinks. That's ALWAYS a great trait.
The purpose of this post was to let all of the people who have looked out for me lately or affected me in some way know that it really means a lot to me to know they're in my corner in good times and in bad...no matter what. I appreciate each and every one of you and look forward to long lasting friendships full of laughter, experience, memories and amazingness....plus a bit of glitter...And a tutu'd dinner party but that's neither here nor there. You all rock and I thank my lucky little stars you're in MY life.
Cheers to YOU all!
Peace, Love, Happiness and Glitter, Bitches.
