30: A fall

This post is for a dear friend of mine, a woman who inspires me daily. We haven’t been friends for years. We didn’t have a gazillion mutual friends when we met. But that first night we hung out, it was pretty clear that we were meant to be friends. (It might have been our mutual love of butter that sealed the deal – which is totally what the best of friendships are based on).

She has been having an epically awful week. The kind of week when you start to wonder if it is worth it. Or just how much more can go wrong. And this is one of her favorite quotes.

So, friend, remember that the rough spots are just as rough at the bottom as they are at the top. And you are awesome. Absolutely awesome. You’ll come out ahead when this is all over.
