I feel like I haven’t spoken much about inspiring people in my life in awhile, so I figured I would write a little post about it. I have written about this friend before, but she has made such a positive impact in my life that I thought she deserved another post. Also, all of my friends are special, and I am going to write more posts about people who have helped me. So, to those who know me, don’t think you’re not special to me!
My friend Allie* instills the confidence in me to be who I really am. I don’t think she really knows this, but I look up to her because she is so true to herself. I feel that I could shave my head and she would say that I look hot. She has always been there for me, even though we have busy schedules and can’t always hang out, she can always take a phone call or listen to whatever crisis that I happen to be going through. Now that I am back home visiting my family for the summer, I miss her more than ever. I feel so special to be considered one of her closest friends. I say this because she has so many friends and so many people want to hang out with her and be with her. I feel like I did nothing special but just lived my life, and yet she considers me to be special and an inspiration in return. ALL of my friends are special to me and have varying qualities that I appreciate, yet I just thought I would write a few words about Allie again. She has cheered me on through my final year in university, and cheered the loudest when I crossed the stage at my convocation (graduation for university). It felt so amazing to have so many people cheering for me, especially since they knew I went through the semester from hell as my mom likes to call it. Once again, thanks Allie. I miss ya tons and I’ll see you soon.
Love you all! xox
