Ever have one of those days where the world is spinning so fast, you can’t catch your breath, and things are being thrown at you left and right? You feel like you are treading water, and at any given moment, your body is going to be so tired that you’re gonna sink and nobody is going to be there to save you. I had one of those days today. I felt like the minute I thought I was getting ahead and the rush was over, something new came along and it was just as much a rush as the stuff I had going on already. I wanted just a minute to reach out for my life saver so that I could feel calm and at ease. I wanted my life saver to hear my cries for help, and I wanted my life saver to tell me to breathe and that there was light at the end of the tunnel and it wasn’t too far ahead of where I was.
My life saver, a/k/a my bestie, and I have been friends since I was 16. We’ve been thru quite a few obstacles together, but in the end, we were both there for one another. My life saver has seen me in my strongest moments and my weakest moments, and is still around as they have not been scared off by any of those times. I’m human, I make plenty of mistakes, and am no saint by any means. Luckily for me, my life saver does not judge me, nor do I judge them. My life saver understands me and knows the struggles I have with my body as well as my self – esteem. They do everything they can to lift me up to help me feel better about myself on my “bad days”.
Without my life saver, I would feel so empty and lost on the inside. I appreciate them more than they will ever know!
Everyone needs a life saver who will be there for them day in, day out. Someone who will listen to the silly 3 minute voice mail message where you ramble on and on about nothing just in case you say something important somewhere in there. Your life saver will do anything to put a smile on your face on days when it feels impossible to smile. Your life saver will listen to you vent about anything and everything without using it against you later.
Do you have a life saver in your life? Do they know just how important they are to you? If they don’t know, now is the best time to tell them. 🙂
