Above: Picture my friend Jacque sent me one morning…Apparently I say “It’s because I’m a NINJA” a BIT too often… 🙂
Hello SOTGC community,
This post was inspired when I was having a rather “odd day” and my mood was a bit…for lack of a better word…”meh!” My best friend Angela, who we call each other Asian Aries Twin, sent me a picture (featured at the bottom of the post) with a text that said “I SOOO thought of YOU when I saw this.” I honestly laughed so hard when I saw this that no noise came out and I started waving my hands in front of me (kind of like a “special needs” T Rex) and then texted her back with “OMG!!! I totally DO this!!!” I think when you have been around your best friends for long enough, it’s almost like they can sense when you need a “pick me up.” I know that every time I start to get stressed and overwhelmed I’ll get a random email or text from one of my “besties” that will make me laugh, make me smile, or touch me so much that I’ll actually tear up.
So if you think it will help, and you have a friend who seems like they’ve been a bit “off” lately…maybe reach out to them with a funny text or picture…I bet it will make their day…and can only solidify and strengthen your friendship and support of each other.
