Some people come into your life, and walk straight back out. Others are here to stay for a little bit longer. But we can’t be upset with those who don’t hang around to enjoy the ride, we just have to appreciate the impact that they have made on us for that short while. The people who hang around, I’ve learned, are the true friends, true loves and true souls. The people who don’t care if you sing your heart out to Ed Sheeran, the people who love that you get white girl low to Flo Rida, the people who eat McDonald’s with you at 3am while you cry to Marley and Me, the people who aren’t afraid to see you at your worst, the people who stand by you to bring out your best.
It’s been a long journey, I’ve been walking in the sun, along the beautiful beach of life. My travels have been enlightening, my self confidence has grown and my outlook more positive than ever. I turn around to see how far I have come, only to see that the waves have washed away my footprints, it becomes clear that the past no longer matters, how far I’ve come on a thousand mile journey doesn’t define me, it’s the people I’ve picked up along the way and the ones who were always there that have made reaching the destination so promising.
I’ve never been great at self love, but when you surround yourself with people who love you for who you are, what you’re passionate about and what you do with your life, you start to see what all the fuss is about. I may spend my Saturday’s with a vodka lime soda in hand dancing to some shitty RnB music, I might spend all of my Monday in bed reading a cheesy romance novel, I sometimes spend 2 hours getting ready to go on a lunch date, I might fake tan once a week and drive a car that has leopard print seat covers but these things make me, me. We are always changing and always growing, sometimes the self love has a bit of catching up to do, but you have to begin to understand that life is too short to worry about anything other than being happy.
I can’t tell you whats next, I can’t tell you who will stick around, but I can tell you it will all be worth it.
Until next time x
