2013 was definitely a rough year for me in general. It had a lot of challenges, heartache, new chapters, lots of good memories, and of course some very sad ones, but for November, it is definitely a month where it provides a time to reflect.

Each day, I am going to post something on the people who have made such an impact on me through my life. If your name does not appear, it does not mean I don’t love you less. The past 3-4 months has been horrible personally for me and true friends are there with you when you are sad, miserable, heartbroken, crying, confused, and at times stupid.

It’s really easy to be friends with someone when they are always happy. What isn’t there to love? The person is fun, bubbly, crazy, happy, and care free. True friends are the ones wiping away your tears with a bottle of wine when you feel like your world is falling apart. They slap you in the face when you say something ridiculous and they hold you and comfort you when you feel like you have taken 10 steps back and tell you that it’s ok to be a hot mess.

I always say this, but I do not know what I did right in life to be blessed with so many amazing people in my life.

Honestly without all of you, I would not be able to live life like I am today…full of adventure, freedom, and as days go by more and more happiness. The memories of the past will provide laughter and the future will look 10,000 times brighter. Each of these people has given me 36 reasons to look towards a better future.

You guys will not be on the list, but you already had a dedication.
