Day 8 Jus Dance- Friendship

I danced in school today. The dance that I did though, the one I consider to have been most fruitful, was the dance back into friendship with my friend Jeremy. Things got rocky for us for a while, there were times I wondered if our friendship would dissolve. Today we snuggled and talked about his new love interest. It was nice to be able to hold space for him. I used to stay with him when I came to school, his home was mine too for those weeks. It felt comfortable to be able to revisit this place of respite, it gave me a chance to reflect on all that has happened and how far I have come in the last year. Funny how when I am flying along, so much work and change, being caught up in it can make things appear to be progressing at snails pace.

“What does it mean to be a friend?” is the question in 12 days journal #125


  1. To be able to speak one's mind, to act from one's heart, and know that it will be received in the spirit offered.

  2. I will just 2nd what "anonymous" has said above, since he/she said it so well. I recently had a friend tell me something that she said she'd never told anyone before, and I felt so honored that she trusted me enough to feel safe sharing that with me. I hope to always be that kind of friend to my loved ones. I hope to always have at least one of those kinds of friends in my life at all times.
