My friend, Christina, started this writing exercise earlier this month to help get her back on track with her writing. I started reading it over the past few days and thought that I would follow along. I could use a little motivation myself. I have slacked off quite a bit on my Blog. I have been going through a down time for the first time in my life. That is something I may choose to write about later on. As fo now, we don’t want to talk about depressing shit, do we? Also, my “A Day in My Skin Blog” came to quite the stand still. I went into my slump, then gained 8 of the 14 pounds that I was so proud of loosing. Such an idiot! I am going to get back on track, but as of today haven’t done that either.
Anyway, here is what the “30 Days” is all about:
* Day 1 — Your Best Friend* Day 2 — Your Crush* Day 3 — Your parents* Day 4 — Your sibling (or closest relative)* Day 5 — Your dreams* Day 6 — A stranger* Day 7 — Your Ex-boyfriend/girlfriend/love/crush* Day 8 — Your favorite internet friend* Day 9 — Someone you wish you could meet* Day 10 — Someone you don’t talk to as much as you’d like to* Day 11 — A Deceased person you wish you could talk to* Day 12 — The person you hate most/caused you a lot of pain* Day 13 — Someone you wish could forgive you* Day 14 — Someone you’ve drifted away from* Day 15 — The person you miss the most* Day 16 — Someone that’s not in your state/country* Day 17 — Someone from your childhood* Day 18 — The person that you wish you could be* Day 19 — Someone that pesters your mind—good or bad* Day 20 — The one that broke your heart the hardest* Day 21 — Someone you judged by their first impression* Day 22 — Someone you want to give a second chance to* Day 23 — The last person you kissed* Day 24 — The person that gave you your favorite memory* Day 25 — The person you know that is going through the worst of times* Day 26 — The last person you made a pinky promise to* Day 27 — The friendliest person you knew for only one day* Day 28 — Someone that changed your life* Day 29 — The person that you want to tell everything to, but too afraid to* Day 30 — Your reflection in the mirror*
So here it goes…
Day 1 – Your Best Friend
The first person that comes to my mind these days when I think of my Best Friend is Tracey. I love her to pieces. She just recently moved away to Alabama with her Family. I miss her terribly. We met after I lived here in AZ for about a year. That was 6 years ago now. I was pregnant with my youngest. I joined a Mom’s Group here in AZ. I don’t remember the exact day, but we just hit it off. The rest is history! She is amazing… beautiful, smart, funny, intense, crazy… perfect! We don’t always see eye-to-eye (meaning that we have very stong opinions – both of us), but I think that is one of the reasons that we get along so well & have such a strong bond, is that we respect, admire and trust each other completely. Bouncing our feeling, ideals and impressions off each other is the best! There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for her. We laugh, we’ve cried, we’ve partied, oh man and so much more to list. I miss our intense conversations just the two of us… well, face-to-face that is. We still have the telephone until I can get there to see her. Hopefully sooner than later.
I never really felt close to people, I don’t know why, but it always seemed I had a boy, or man, in my life. They were my best friends, well at the time. I don’t know why I felt that way with women, but I always have felt inferior in some way deep down. The close bond just never seemed to be there even though it really was. I still struggle with that even today. When I call someone “my Best Friend” I always wonder of they feel that way about me too, or if I am over-stepping my friendship. Maybe it is insecurity, maybe it is over-analyzing… I don’t really know, but it is me.
I have another person that comes to mind when I think of Best Friend… Shelly… I have known her since the 6th grade, but don’t remember those days very well. What I do remember is becoming pretty inseparable in the 8th grade. I just wish I could remember how we became re-aquainted during that year in Junior High. I will have to ask her one day. Shelly and I have kept in touch all of these years. It wasn’t always so frequent, but our bond is strong and I always live the time I do have when I get to spend time with her.
I have a few other Best Friends… my family… my Cousins… my Sister… my Nieces. I love them with all my heart and they have always been my Best Friends. I miss them terribly each day I am away from them. When we are together it is the most amazing time ever!
Love is strong people! Friends and family and positive love is your life is amazing… live it! 🙂
