What my best friend taught me

I have a LOT of best friends. I don’t care what you say, you can have more than one best friend!!!  Hahaha!  But this particular best buddy has been by my side since high school. So we’ve been friends for over 2 decades. That is longer than any relationship I’ve ever been in. 😊  

When we were younger I was super reserved. Super quiet. And always cared what other people thought about me. 

She took me out dancing for the first time in my life. It was against my religion to dance. So I had never been allowed to move my bod to music. I was completely mortified and told her ‘but I don’t know how to do this!!’  Well, more like yelled at her over the loud music. Ha!  She looked and me and gestured ‘do like me girl, I got you’. And proceeded to dance like a complete fool, on purpose!!!  I couldn’t believe it!!!  But I followed her lead. And we had a blast. Now keep in mind, this girl can DANCE. She was and is amazing at dancing-Had done all kinds of dance. Tap, hip hop, clogging. And she was willing to make herself look silly for my sake. 

What is the purpose of me telling you this awesome story??  Do not take yourself so seriously!!!  Friends, it’s not worth it and really….  no one cares. In fact, the more silly you are, the happier you will be. Be a kid. Be dumb. Be goofy. As long as you aren’t hurting anyone, it’s all good. 

What kind of silly thing did you do today?
