A New Adventure

I'm dreading this post. I hate exposing my insecurities to the world. But as I briefly discussed in my last post, Carissa and I have decided to stop feeling icky and take on a healthier lifestyle. Let me warn you, this WILL NOT become your typical diet/weight loss blogs, because I'm not a fan of them myself.  For the most part, they annoy me.  And I feel like the just point fingers at all those who aren't into that lifestyle. However, I will from time to time share my progress, maybe a easy new recipe I have discovered, a fun new workout I have found, etc. this basically is my accountability post, to hopefully keep me on the right track. So I'm linking up with Sarah, to hopefully find other fun tips to help me become healthier. Here goes nothing.....

Best Friends

It's amazing how young girls begin using the term "best friend." Lately, I have heard girls as young as 2, mine included, say "want to be my best friend?" Or when they're not getting what they want, " You're not my best friend anymore" Seriously, where do they get this stuff. My daughter is 2 going on 16 I swear. They get sassy younger and younger these days.  In order to deter any unwanted tears or tantrums we always explain that we don't have best friends everybody should just be friends with everybody.  We teach the girls that there really are no best friends and while I agree with the theory that everybody should love everybody and we should be everybody's friend, I feel a little different about the best friend theory.

I hope when Kenz is older that she does have a best friend, or multiple best friends. I don't know where I would be in this life without my best friends.  They have got me through heartbreak, times when I thought I could never go on, loneliness, when I thought I didn't have any friends, joy, when I just wanted to scream from the rooftops, and many other things.  Milestones are always more fun when shared with a friend. I'm so thankful that I've had a friend to share life with. And as I met with my best friend last week and we discussed our current life trials, joys and disappointments, I'm excited to be sharing a new journey with her.
