Motivation Mondays: 17 Years Later

I am blessed to have a great group of friends, but only one person has been by my side for the last 17 years. Brittany and I go back to kindergarten and have literally been there for every life moment. Her 23rd birthday was yesterday, so I’m dedicating my Motivation Monday post to my best friendship.

If you look on the ‘Rockstar Legend’ section of my blog, you will see a quote: “Little girls with dreams become women with vision.” Brittany and I have lived this saying out over the last 17 years. From kindergarten to college graduation, we have walked side by side, hitting each milestone together. Our dreams changed throughout the years but we are both on the road to accomplish great things. Brittany is in graduate school, pursuing a Masters in School Psychology and you know what I’m trying to do. We’ve grown up and grown¬†closer, but we’ve faced our set of challenges, as every friendship does.

Brittany and I stopped going to school together in 7th grade. I ended up in catholic school while she stayed in public. We then went to different high schools and were states apart for college. We figured it out, with phone calls, Skype sessions and the occasional visit. Our friendship has been based on open, honest communication since day one. I still have the note Brittany wrote in third grade, telling me exactly how she felt about a certain situation.¬† Whatever the situation, we share our honest opinion and give real advice. That’s the only reason we’ve survived this long.

I’m not writing this post to brag about my friendship or to put it on display. On this dreary, hurricane Monday, I’d like to remind you to fight for those in your life. My friendship with Brittany wasn’t always easy or convenient. But, we both knew and will always know that it’s worth fighting for. Friendships do require effort, but they shouldn’t ever be hard. When you put in the time and are honest with each other, friendships are the best thing life has to offer.
