Talking about friends is an interesting subject. I have been lucky in my life to have the most amazing friends anyone could ask for. Some I have grown up with since I was 3 or 4 to the people who I have met and been friends with since primary and secondary school and the others who I have met along the way.
I have found since living over here in Canada that people refer to others as their best friends or simply just their friends. I really don’t think I can do that. I have been asked many times about who is my best friend from people over here. It sort of brings me back to being in prep or grade 1, it is such a foreign thing to me that I don’t think I could ever get used to. I have acquaintance’s, I have some friends and I have some amazing friends. I don’t think if even a person put a bullet to my head I could pick a best friend! Everyone to me is special in their own way and i love them for that.
As I mentioned, I have some friends who go a long way. I feel like I am such a lucky person to go through such friendships. These friendships I speak of are from people from back home, in Australia who I know I will see again. They have meant so much to me and basically shaped me to who I am today. I have wondered whether I would find people as amazing as the ones I love so much from home and to be honest never really thought I would. I have to say that after 11 months, I think I am on the right track. I am not going to mention names, I haven’t through this whole rant but they know who they are. Some through work, some through Ash. I will never, ever replace the friendships I have in Australia, I wouldn’t ever dream of it but there are some real genuine people over here who I have taken a shining to and I look forward to continuing what we have throughout my time both here and anywhere else. Tonight really proved that.
I am a lucky person. I seem to find love wherever I go. I would never change what I have and what I have been through with anyone. I don’t think of myself as a religious person but I truly feel blessed for what I have.
My life is pretty amazing.
