Love & Friendship

One of the reasons that I enjoy Valentine's day so much is that not only do we get celebrate romantic love but we can also celebrate the love that we have for our friends. Finding good friends in this life is hard to do, so don't take it lightly! :)

The quote for today is "Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you have to say. Best friends listen to what you don't say."

It's so important to have someone who will just listen to you vent, give you a shoulder to cry on, tell you when you should NOT wear the outfit that you asked about, and stand up for you when you need it the most. One of the best things about having a friend who knows you like the back of their hand is that they can tell as soon as you say "hello" into the phone that something is wrong, and force you to explain yourself. Then, most of the time they are even able to tell what type of advice they should give you, like if you needed some "tough love" or a slightly more sensitive approach. Cherish your friends. Never be in competition with each other, always be supportive and open minded (nobody is ever exactly alike), never be jealous, and always always always be there for each other.
I guess the point I want to get across with this post is that if you don't have a significant other this Valentine's day use this day to show your appreciation for your friends. Even if it's just a text, but make it PERSONAL, don't send a forwarded mass text that you send to everybody in your contacts, that's bullshit(for lack of a better word). What I mean is, how is that showing someone that they are important to you if you can't even come up with a text on your own? Or if you don't live in the same place, send a card! Who doesn't like getting mail every now and then? Like, someone took the time to go buy the perfect card, a stamp and make that long trek to the mailbox JUST FOR YOU! :) Whatever you may decide to do this Valentine's day take minute to thank your friends for everything they do for you.
Positive thoughts = positive emotions

Peace, Love, & Happiness
