i'm glad it's friday. this has been a week full of challenge, but also full of friendship. though sometimes i say to myself that i'm tired of growing, tired of learning lessons, these lessons are terribly valuable ones. like: it's important to stand up for yourself, and standing up for yourself may not incur the disastrous repercussions you might think, even though at the time it feels as if you're teetering on a ledge.
the benefit in sharing these moments with good friends is incalculable. they are the safety net that makes it less terrifying to leap. and sometimes they are guides that point the way. gently.
here's to growth, and to fridays which mean you've made it through.
also, here's to beauty that comes along and shines a big bright light.
