Do you have a best friend? How many friends do you have? Who is in your inner circle?
I’ve spent the most part of my life searching for a best friend. My best friend. The one person in this world who I can totally rely on and who I know they feel the exact same way about me. That one person.
I have met people along the way. I’ve even called a couple my best friends only to realise that it’s not always as it seems [with people]. Only God knows the heart of men. I only see what I’m allowed to see, and I can only hope that whatever I see is true and pure and not twisted to suit a certain narrative or induce a specific feeling from me.
During holiday seasons, I sometimes feel a certain emptiness —almost as if I am missing out on some things. But, the moment I start to point out certain things I am grateful for, I can’t help but feel like the glass is half full instead. Indeed, there are quite a number of things (and people) I am truly thankful for.
Unfortunately, I can’t list every one of them. I would feel guilty if I forgot to add a name and ended up making someone feel a certain type of way. I am usually feeling that way, and it’s not pretty. Instead, I would like to thank (and say a prayer) for every single person I’ve interacted with this year. Consciously and/or unconsciously, each one of them made a contribution of sorts into making me into the person I am today, and for that, I am eternally grateful.
Also, I am grateful for you. Yes, you. The person reading this. You who has front row seats to my mind. I am grateful you decided to spare me a moment of your precious time. You have no idea how much it means to me. Thank you so so much!
I was really hoping I could share something festive. Unfortunately, my holiday cheer hasn’t quite kicked in yet (forgive me). However, I do pray that your heart be filled with immense joy this season and may your year end on an even better note than it started (regardless).
Peace to all!!! (or whatever they say😅)
Happy holidays! 💜

P. S. What is a post without a song??? I’ve been a fan of Mariah Carey’s O Holy Night for a long time now so… here goes!
P. P. S. Since we’re talking about friends, I’d like to introduce you to the song that I listen to when I’m feeling blue and I’m not in a hurry to snap out of it (but it also brings me peace. Like, you listen and make your own opinion: You Know Me by Steffany Gretzinger.
