I am grateful for friendships; the energy within that attracts new friends, those amazing people that become part of my life, and sharing similar experiences. Friends help me remember that I am not alone in this world and that the emotions I feel and the challenges I experience are not saved solely for me; they let me know "I am not the only one". Everywhere I have been on this globe and in this life, I have met new people who I have been instantly attracted to--in energy and personality.
