I posted this text convo on my Insta-story (@falenkdwb) yesterday because it was the best part of my day. My friend texted me saying my life was like Moana. I was like...huh?! This is what she wrote:
Melanie lives in Indiana, and we honestly don't talk a ton anymore because of life. I still consider her one of the best friends I've ever had. She's smart and hilarious, and we have far too many inside jokes to share. We worked together and were great friends, and she saw the ups and downs in my radio career...trying to get a morning job...getting passed over...getting my job in Reno etc.
I am sharing this because we should all be this kind to our friends. I cried when I read this, and she told me she cried when she wrote it. Look, we're all alike, and it's nice to get some positive reinforcement that what we're doing matters or inspires. I question myself daily. Am I happy? Am I doing enough to make my boyfriend, family, friends etc happy? Am I working hard enough at my job? Am I giving enough to charity? Am I being nice enough to strangers? It consumes me sometimes. And truthfully, I'm not.
If someone inspires you in any way, let them know. It will make you feel good, it will make them feel great, and that's just beautiful.
