A Toast

Em from Have a Laugh on Me titled a facebook photo with "Here's to being yourself and being loved for it". I was very taken with this, and decided on the spot it would be my new toast when I had nothing specific to toast.

I put it up on Facebook (announcing I was raising my cup of coffee and toasting all my friends).

This has been my most popular post in a while, and one person even thanked me saying it was exactly what they needed to hear that day (they'd been insulted the night before, for being perceived as difficult).

So I'm saying it to all of you. Something to remember for yourself, and something to remind friends.

And if you aren't already, follow Have a Laugh on Me on Facebook - she's inspirational, literally. (I'm just a thief! ;) Here's her post she wrote that inspired it on the nature of friendship.

Linking up with Thankful Thursdays, because I'm thankful to be able to feel this way around a lot of the people I know and Things I Know because I know I learn a lot of great sayings and attitudes from other bloggers.

  1. Those are very wise words indeed and they speak to a lot of people. I think it's a lesson that's taken me many years to figure out, but now in my late thirties I think I'm finally here. Visiting via #teamIBOT

  4. Thanks Lydia and Em - so very true !!!!! If a friendship feels like hard work - it's probably not meant to be.
    Have a wonderful day !

  5. Such great words! We're not everyone's cup of tea and that's ok because we all have people who love us for who we are.
