There's the door......

Recently I have been doing thinking and realized it is SO important to know who your real friends are. I mean it... REAL FRIENDS. Not just someone you say hi to because if you dont, you are a bad person. I have skimmed the "bleh" layer off the top of my "pot", and now things are good. I have also comed to realize.... if you dont dont like me, don't let the door hit you in the butt on your way out. Cleaning out my "life" has been great. I feel like I dont have to walk around on egg shells, I can be who I am, and those who truly like me, are still here!! I like to be ME, and I like you to be YOU.... dont be someone you arent. Understand? There are so many 2 face fake people out there who one day are your good friend, then behind your back they talk crap about you. Sadly, I used to be one of those people. I would put on a happy face for people, and in reality, I didnt like them. I just put up with them.
It is so important to just be YOU, and dont be a fake 2 face. So please, if I have done something to offend you, or you are having a hard time being my friend, talk to me. I will listen. Outside of family, a lady and her friends are very important. Moving a whole 25 minutes away from my "old life" was so hard, and sadly many if not most of my "friends" never spoke to me again, or blocked me out of their life. That told me they werent really my friends from the beginning. I am probably the luckiest person alive (in my opinion haha) and have an adorable family who are freaking genius' (again, in my opinion), I have a studly husband who adores his family (that is a known fact, not just in my opinion), a awesome home, with a yard (jealous daybreak friend, hahah kidding), I am happy, healthy and seriously have the GREATEST friends ever. Real friends... I have the greatest REAL friends ever.So please, if you havent seen me in a while, come on down. I love girls nights, I love my friends. I am SO lucky to live 3 minutes away from my all time BFF Barb...I know you are reading this Barb... love ya girl.
So if you hate me, think I am fake, think I am the devil... then obviously we arent a match, and shouldnt be friends (duh)! If you would like to discuss things with me, feel free... I am willing to listen. But since I already "cleaned house"... I am pretty sure the people who do read this rant and ramble are in fact my friends. OH.. and here is a shot out to my new friends here in the land of Lehi.... Sharlane, Trisa, Cami, Kendra, Kristine (there are about 20 more, but I dont want to burn dinner) YOU GUYS HAVE MADE THIS PAST YEAR AWESOME, LOVE YOU, AND THANKS SO MUCH FOR GIVING ME A CHANCE!
Bethany, Janie, Melissa B, Ashley, Jenn, Michelle, Kristine O, Lia, from my old 'hood..... fabulous people you are... (yoda voice). I know there are a WHOLE bunch more names I need to mention, if you are my friend and live in daybreak... hugs.
Sarah Pence Sharp... I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU!!! Best room mate ever.... get your butt out of the ICE of Idaho and come down for a visit (when I am home, woops, sorry about that!)
Carrie Popham...... you have been my friend since we were kiddos, how have you put up with me!! Love you, move out here, PLEASE?
Heather Lewis, you are awesome, and I adore you and your family. So happy Jason found you, or you found him... you get the picture!! I loved crashing your lunch date back 8 years ago (so I could meet you and tell Jason to just go for it, and fall in love with you!!!) I know I am forgettting so many people... feels like I am holding a "oscar" and saying my thank you's for winning the "luckiest person alive award".
Sigh..... I am so lucky...

Way to weed out people. Every few years it's a good little side project. Hopefully you are only left with the supporters and, as I have learned on white trash TV the "haters" are dumped to the side. Thanks for your nice salute. We really think you are tops too.

Who's being so mean to you? :(

All the pics of your fam are so cute! Sounds like you're loving life...I'm glad that the move has ended up happy! :) Do you ever come up here?

Jen..that post was great...and sounded a lot like a speech at the Academy Awards :)

JULIE said...

Jennie you are awesome! I love the post! Wish we would have had more than one year to hang out and grow together! Your family is beatutiful and no one should have to hide the beauty of their children!

Cami said...

Yes, it's always nice to keep people around you that make you happy for sure. I try so hard to just love everyone, but there are some people I choose not to associate with more than necessary, just because we are much, much too different. But I think YOU are great!

p.s. I'm the WORST blog reader ever lately, so if I only comment once a month, that's pretty much par for me lately. :)
