I wanted to share this quote with you. Being the "strong one" and the one who "has it all together" can be exhausting! I have to remind myself often that it's ok to let people know that you're not ok. In fact, letting people in and being vulnerable is one of the best things you can do for yourself and for your relationships. If you're the one who is always there for your friends - give them a chance to be there for you. Like all relationships, friendship is a two way street! Keeping things bottled up will only turn you into a human pressure cooker that could explode at any given second.....like in the middle of a casino while celebrating with your girlfriends for instance (not that I would know anything about that, wink, wink). Life throws you curve balls and catches you off guard. We all deal with our own stuff that gets heavy every once in a while, which means we all need support from time to time. I am beyond grateful that I have an amazing network of irreplaceable girlfriends, an incredible husband and a family who is always there for me even though they don't live close by. When you hit a rough patch, remember that you don't have to face it alone. Lean on the people in your life that love you, be kind to yourself and remember that we're all in this crazy life together.
