In this month of giving thanks I want us to give thanks to our besties. With luck hopefully we all have them, that special person (or if you’re lucky, people) that is the heart outside of your body. They will stick with you through thick and through thin, they know your secrets, they have helped you, cried with you, laughed with you, been there for those big moments in life, good and bad.
I want you to tell us about your very best friend. Write a letter to him or her. Give us an example of a time that your bestie shone through for you. Tell us about a moment in time with your bestie. Do you have a male or female bestie? Is your bestie your mum, or sister, or daughter, or husband? Do you have a tribe of besties? Do you feel you don’t have that one very special person in your life that you crave? Describe your very very best friend from school, you know, the one that you’d never do anything without. I want to be warmly embraced into your inner circle this month and read all about your besties.
