Day 228/365 of gratitude.
ride or die.
there's a lot of "hip" words/phrases that make me want to pierce my eardrums with rusty nails, (like #bae
for example) but ride or die is one i can get behind.
the people who fall into that category are essential in our lives. let's face it, it's a tough world and no matter how independent we are, there always comes a time where we have to turn to that person(s) who always has our back - no hesitations and no questions asked. the tricky party can be deciphering who those people really are, but when you find them, treasure them.
that is why it is so important to be the kind of person you want to attract! now, i cant speak for anyone else but that's been a challenge for me at many points throughout my life. there have been people that i've admired for their character and i have seen how well they are received by others and thought to myself, "that is who i want to be!" only to fail miserably. it takes time and self work, but we can all get there.
on the flip side, there have been other times when i have struggled with understanding how people aren't a certain way, particularly when i expect a certain reaction because it would come so easily for me. it is in those times i must remind myself that we all are different and we all have things we can do better, those people just happen not to be my ride or dies. but the people we love and connect with, that we accept the good with the bad from, the ones we would do anything for at any moment because they matter that much to us... well, those are the people i am extra grateful for.
and i'm even more thrilled that my kids have that in each other, even on the days they don't realize it.
