Some people will never find what I have found.
Some people are never lucky enough to have the connection I have.
Some people go through life never truly knowing what it is like to love a friend like I love my soul sister.
Over 8 years ago I was working in a photography studio as a manager. It was a small space but I was so thrilled to be doing what I had always wanted to do, and I even got to hire my first ever member of staff! Wow! Talk about living the year 2000 dream.
I had advertised the job in the shop window, you know, Internet wasn’t what it is now. Somehow people saw it and passed in on to people they knew or applied themselves.
One sunny day, it may not have been sunny I can’t actually remember, but it felt sunny when all this wonderful long blonde beautiful hair walked in, attached to a equally wonderful person.
Jade. My soon to be bestie, and fondly named Pablo.
We hit it off straight away and as she walked out of my studio, leaving her CV and a huge smile on my face I said “it’s her. I want to hire her”….. and I did!
Together we would spend the days ‘working’ aka, laughing and joking. We got to know each other and even though it felt kinda wrong (as she was my staff) we became good friends.
Fast forward 8 years and we have been through some stuff. Not with each other, but together none the less.
I have found myself, when I thought I had lost my world.
She has found herself when it looked like she may give up.
We have both had our battles. We have both come out the other side and tonight, when I read her my two blogs from the past two days, she cried.
This wasn’t tears of jealousy. It wasn’t tears of bitterness. It was pure love.
She was so unbelievably proud of me for finding my voice, embracing this crazy path we call life and for getting out of my own way, so I could live my best life.
That. Is. Unconditional. Love!
She was so overwhelmed with her feelings she couldn’t actually talk for a whole 5 minuets (which is crazy for her)
Eventually she just had to come and give me a huge hug (which is weird in itself as although we are soul sisters and best friends, we don’t hug!)
In that moment I felt all of her love for me pouring out. I found myself on such a high and feeling all the emotions she was feeling, it was amazing.
I can do this. I can do what ever I put my mind to. She is my cheerleader and has always believed in me, even when I haven’t believed in myself.
Because of her love and support I know I can achieve anything. All I have to do is believe in me as much as she does.
I hope she knows I feel exactly the same.
I know she can do, be, have anything. All she has to do is trust in her own amazing power and all will be given to her.
If you haven’t got a friend like that, I urge you to find one. Manifest one. Make one. Build one. What ever you do, love unconditionally and like minded spirits will be drawn to you.
Like attracts like after all.
I am so proud of us and all we have achieved, and I’m so grateful we get to grow together and enjoy our paths running side by side. Building each other up, and together knowing we can achieve anything.
If you want to know more about this amazing human I call Pablo (that’s a whole other blog) then check her out.
She has a blog all about her struggle with mental illness, and she is helping others to feel less alone – including me!
I wish you all the love in the world so you too can find your ‘soul sister or brother‘ and share your amazing journey with them.
All the love
