Today I am thankful for my amazing network of friends.
I feel so incredibly blessed to have such a large network of supportive friends. I've made friends from so many different phases of my life - college, past jobs, through blogging, through running, and the list goes on and on.
I have spent much of my life single but I think one of the blessings of being single is that I have developed very strong female friendships in my life. That is not to say that those who marry young can't have strong female friendships; it's just different when you are going through life without a partner to rely on, as it forces you to rely on others in your life. And I think that learning to rely on a network of people is a healthy lesson to learn in life.
I am thankful for the friends that I've met organically through running, work, college, etc, but I'm especially thankful for the friendships that blogging has brought to my life. Blogging has allowed me to connect with people who have similar interests, personality traits, and values. Having a blog definitely makes a person feel more vulnerable, but I have found that the shared experience of being vulnerable seems to deepen the relationships that are formed.
What are you thankful for today?
