Over the years there have been a LOT of people that have come in and out of my life. Some for good reason and some just because we grew apart. As I get closer (OMG it's SO CLOSE) to 30, I realize that cutting toxic people (or even just people that don't add anything of value to my life) out actually feels super great. Not that I can't be friends with them or that I can't speak to them if I see them in the grocery store, but just that I don't go looking for their drama or letting them take advantage of me.
The biggest thing that I want to do before I hit the big 3-0 is to invest less in every relationship I have and instead invest more into the ones that truly matter. The people that will be there for me through thick and thin, dropping everything that they're doing to help me move, get dinner, catch a ball game, or just talk because one of us has had a bad day. Those relationships are the ones that I want to nurture and work hardest on because they're the most mutually beneficial and I can't wait to see where these ladies (and gentlemen) take me through this coming year - or 10.
