Embracing the Good People in Life

Surrounding yourself with good people is something most of us grow up hearing. Whether it’s big group of friends, a couple people, or even your cousins, it’s so important to have a good support system in your life. We all need a person, and no matter who it is, make sure you keep them close to you.


From my parents to my cousins, I feel lucky to have the most incredible family in the world. For me, my cousins were by first best friends, they love me and tolerate me no matter what, even when I’m the craziest, most annoying person. No one truly gets me the way that they do. We all have the same humour, the same sarcasm, and we all know the ultimate ways to annoy the heck out of each other. But most of all, we know exactly how to be there for each other when it's needed.


My best friends today are my chosen family. We’ve been through thick and thin and they’ve all changed my life in so many ways. Though we’re now mostly separated by distance, I know that they’re just a Skype call away. With everything that goes on in our day-to-day lives, we forget that we always need someone to lean on sometimes. And for that, I’m grateful for my friends.


Whoever your person may be, embrace them. Love them. Cherish them. Remind them how much you love and appreciate them. Having people in your life that lift you, encourage you, and root for you are the people that you’ll want to keep in your life forever.
