I Get By With a Little Help from My Friends

I am constantly in awe of the group of people that I have around me that I call friends. I treasure and savor each one. Recently as I have stumbled, been down or not showed up in the ways that I want, I have been reminded of how big their shoulders are, how strong they are, how generous their hearts are and how open their ears are.

In the moments when I don’t feel very good about who I am, I look to the people who surround me and see how amazing they are and the qualities that they have that I love and it keeps me moving forward because I must have some of what they have even if I cannot connect with it in the moment.

My friends make my life better. My friends make me better. Big gratitude every damn day.

Friends make us better
