Food for Thought #2


I want to say something really quick before I get to my post: 

Sometimes I find it super hard to describe my life. Because this morning I was really sad and on the verge of tears because I was pretty sure I had turned into this annoying person who was scaring off all my friends. 
But this evening I feel just about on top of the world. 
I mean, I'm sitting here, writing a blog post, wearing one of my favorite hats just because I can, chewing bubblegum, listening to awesome music, gearing up to go back to a Christian co-op that I haven't been to in three years and my cat is asleep next to me. Could life get better then that? For me; not by much.
God really blessed me today with realizing that even if one aspect of your life isn't going really well, your still loved. And even better then that, that even though a day started bad, it doesn't have to end that way to. 
Sorry about that rambling, I just was so blessed I wanted to share with all of ya'll as well. =) 

Now on to my post. ;D

For the next few weeks I'm going to be posting about friends. Not how to make them, not about mine, but simply how to keep a friend. I have been blessed with several friends who have stuck with me for a really long time (We're talking 8+ years here) and being a talkative person I would not say I'm an expert at making and keeping friend but I do know a good deal about it. 

My number one piece of advice with friends: Say "Thank you". 
You might never know how much it means to your friend to just say thank you. It can be for the fact that they have stuck with you through something, that they made you laugh, that they texted you or whatever but I can not tell you how many I have been tuched/tuched someone because of a Thank you. 
They may not even know they did anything that tuched you which makes the thank you even better. 

Your all amazing!

  2. Looking forward to those posts!
    Umm, YA! I completely feel you. I'm in an amazing Christian school, but wherever you are, there will be drama galore. (And drugs and sex, for that matter. There is only a very small handful of people in my school, and still they do everything outside of school. I 100% guarantee there is some of that among high schoolers in your homeschool community and church. Ya, it's hard to believe, even in the finest community. But I guarantee it. Ok I got sidetracked.)
    Personally, I sometimes struggle with being a floater. I tend to float from lunch table to lunch table each day. And you know what? That is great! In 4 years, even the most popular people won't know more than a few high school friends.
    I also suck (there's no better word, sorry!) at being "just friends" with guys. With my personality, I open up too quickly. And unfortunately, that in itself can cause drama galore. :/ Like yesterday. ohhelpme. Long story short, the iPhone is a great way to make and maintain friendships, but it sure backfires. Sometimes I feel so helpless because of the gossip and assumptions that are made over texting. :(
