Friendship ROCKS! -Monica

It’s not world “Friendship Day” – but I feel that friendship should be celebrated today!

There are so many things in life to be grateful for. Sometimes, we just have to take a step back to be able to appreciate them.  In my opinion, one of the greatest and most important things in life is, friendship.  We can find friendship in our families, friends, communities and our adorable pets.  These days with social media, we can even find friendship all the way across the world.

When I was young, I was super shy and did not enjoy socializing.  Most of my time was spent hiding behind my dad’s legs.  Because of my shyness, making friends was not always easy. Yet, I was lucky to find a few amazing friends in high school: Steph, Jen and Alicia. Finding such great friends, made life way more enjoyable, helped bring me out of my ‘shell’, and helped shape me into the person I am today. 

A great big hug to all the friends made along the way in “this thing called life”.

Here’s to celebrating friendship…

Take a moment out of your busy schedule and give your friends and family a hug, or if you are not into hugging – just say something nice to them!
