A few big things 2018 has taught me:
Family is the most most important thing, but I already knew that. They are my number one, forever.
My list this year actually has mostly to do with friends! And oddly enough, I learned a lot of these while watching my daughter turn into a tween!
You don’t have to wait to be invited, you can be the one who invites! I know it’s hard and scary, but the more you do it, the easier it gets!
Look for the person sitting alone and sit by them. But don’t just sit by them, learn about them. And love them.
If someone is awkward, negative, hard to talk to, or has vibes that you don’t naturally get along with, that’s the person to love the hardest. They probably need a friend the most. And they might surprise you in the end. Most of my best friends through the years were hard to get to know.
No one notices when you say something stupid, they’re more worried about if they’re going to say something stupid back.
If you want friends, serve.
Always shine. Be a light.
