The importance of friendships...

The past few years have definitely been ones of change for me and although this has led to some meltdowns, pushing myself out of my comfort zone has definitely been a good thing. As I have got older, I have become more confident and self -assured and although I still have wobbles, I am so far from the meek scared girl who started this blog all those years ago. Getting older has helped me to realise that that life's too short to make time for toxic people and as long as I am happy, the rest will sort itself out. I have known my fair share of rubbish friendships in the past (and also been a rubbish friend myself) but I am lucky enough now to have some brilliant people that I can call my friends. I have managed to see and speak to quite a lot of them in the last few weeks and it just reinforced how lucky I am to have them and how great they really are. For years I felt like I would never fit in or find people that liked me but luckily, there are plenty of other weirdos out there who I can count as my friends! ;) It doesn't matter how long you have known someone, but just knowing that they are there for you is a massive deal for me and I feel overwhelmed sometimes about just how many awesome people I know. 

This is a bit of a weird and rambling post but I often find it difficult to navigate my way through worry and focus on the good so I wanted to try and embrace the positive here and share the love. Sadly I don't have pictures of all my friends to share but take this a public shout out to all of the awesome people I have in my life (yes that includes YOU) and a hint to tell your BFFs that you love them!

Loved reading this Maria! I find as you get older and life itself helps to shape who you are, your real friends naturally pick their way through the pack to the top of your deck (:

I've also had a lot of crappy friendships in the past, but friends are just incredible, aren't they!? I've made the decision to have my friends at my wedding next year, over the family I rarely see! Yay for the family we choose for ourselves.

Love this - I feel like I've learned a lot about who my true friends are this year, even if I don't see them as often as I'd like to. x

Awww what a lovely post, Maria, and definitely something I need to think about at the moment. I'm trying to rid myself of toxic people this year who make me feel terrible and remind myself that I have brilliant friends who are kind, thoughtful, supportive, hilarious and will always have my back, even if they live 300 miles from me. I also love how supportive the blogging community is. Bloggers are awesome :)

P.S. Loving the sleek, new blog layout.
