People are the most important thing we have in this world. They are always there (even if maybe sometimes not the same ones are always there). And they provide the deepest, most amazing connections we could ever have as humans.
Making friends isn't always the easiest thing to do. It was really easy for me when I was in school. There were all these people around me doing the same things that I did, stuck in the same classes I was, and that made it easy to find someone to talk to. Outside of school is not quite as easy for me. I make friends at work, but because of my line of work as a firefighter I have to say that my style of "hanging out" doesn't really jive with my co-workers too well most of the time.
Despite not having a set place where I can trap people into being my friends, it seems like people always find me. They talk to me randomly on the street at a festival and invite me to a vegetarian potluck. You know, or something like that.
I'm learning more and more that it's important to cultivate those friendships. To keep in touch with people even when life moves across the country.
I have some very awesome friends and I'm so grateful for them. So grateful that they have stuck around in my life and tried to keep in touch with me. So grateful that I have people to talk to, to laugh with, to learn from, and to enjoy.
Thank you friends for being in my life! Thanks for all the love.
