I’ve just spoken to one of my bestest buddies on the phone.
I’ve known Caz for well over 15 years or so and it was a friendship born out of a work relationship.
At the beginning we weren’t hugely close, mainly drinking buddies and someone to moan too about our dysfunctional relationships / bosses. But over time what began as a casual mate ship developed into a deep and unconditional bond that will undoubtedly stand the test of time.
I live in Phuket, she lives in the UK so the most we see each other is once a year. We probably chat on the phone twice a year and send a general what’s app message every couple of months.
But when we speak it’s as if we were together yesterday. And if the chips were down I know we’d be there for each other.
I probably only have 4 or 5 people in my life I feel the same way about and I feel lucky to have that many.
Friends are the family we choose and I for one am so grateful I have such an abundant and loving family.
Reach out to a friend today and let them know how much you appreciate and love them.
It’ll make both of you feel amazing and will also remind you how much you’re loved.
With love & gratitude,
