Five Friends each of us should have!

Friends are the family we choose for ouselves! Anais Nin wrote, “Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive,” You should consider yourself blessed if you can find these friends.

1. THE UPLIFTER - her favorite word is “yes!” You could tell her you’re trading your six-figure income for a career as a macrame artist and she’d barely pause before yelling, “Go for it!” you need someone who looks past the love handles to notice you are gorgeous!

2. THE TRAVEL BUDDY - her best characteristic is flexibility. This agreeable companion need not be the girl you’ve known forever, it’s enoughj that she’s comfortable with quiet, gabfests and even if the hotel is a bust, she’s okay with you!

3. THE TRUTH TELLER - intent separates the constructive from the abusive. This friend is able to tell you the hard news but to speak it in love, not jealousy or malice…she’s telling you what you NEED to hear not what you Want to hear and she loves you through it.

4. THE GIRL WHO JUST WANTS TO HAVE FUN - she’s the one that can just spontaneously have good times! Like poring over the glitter lip gloss in the drugstore, trying on sunglasses that look silly and wearing a feather boa just to make you laugh!

5. THE UNLIKELY FRIEND - some friends twice your age, others half, some rich, others homeless, some black, others Korean, Mexican, caucasian - all of these friends will add richness to your life in a way only variety can bring!
