Namaste November: Thankful for Friends

November 3, 2011

I’m loving this trend going on on Facebook and twitter of “30 days of thanks.” If you haven’t heard of it, for the month of November people all around the world are focusing on one thing each day for the next 30 days they are thankful for. It can be anything big or small. I love how this goes in line with my plan for Namaste November. In focusing on one thing we are thankful for at the start of the day it can put our priorities and worries throughout the day into perspective.

So in light of Namaste November, thankful Thursday, and 30 days of thanks (dang this post covers everything, huh?) I’d like to express my gratitude I have for my friends.

My friends are so important to me. Without them I wouldn’t be who I am today. I have such a variety of friends:

friends from elementary age…

friends from high school…

friends that live near… and friends that live far…

blog friends… and blog friends turned real life friends.

Having a support system of friends who are always there to lift you up when you’re having a bad day or be proud of you when you accomplish a big goal is AWESOME.

As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized just how valuable friends are to me and how important  it is to surround yourself with friends that only lift you up and help you to achieve the best you you can be.

Tell me about a friend you are thankful for.

    I’m thankful for my friends as well- since graduating high school a few years ago, I’ve realized that I value having a few close friends rather than a huge circle of acquaintances.

    Yay! High school would have NOT been the same without you. I’m thankful for YOU because you are very inspiring and a great friend. This reminds me, we need trip #2 to the Bahamas in our near future.
