Fate and Friendship

Nearly two years ago, I was embarking on a fresh start in life. After harsh failure, depression and a very difficult two years…
But the difference was myself; I was a changed person, a better and stronger one. Armed with a new, positive, “I am all right” and the “Universe conspires to act for my own good” attitude and wise advice from my best friends in Mauritius, I went to university on a sunny autumn day in September. Despite all of this, one cannot help but be scared and anxious, and I trudged along on my first day, with it ending by having made one friend from the library tour.
The second day dawned, and I told myself this countless times, “It is ok to be on my own. If I don’t make friends now, it is not the end of the world. It takes time.”

Then the Universe stepped in.

I do believe it is true, when you surrender to the fact that there is a master plan out there and that the contribution we make is decision making, that Life, Fate, the Universe or God, conspires to show us the way. On that second day I met by chance, a group of wonderful people, by stepping up and talking to someone during a lunch gathering. From then this group of people I met just naturally gravitated towards each other and today we are still a tight knit group. For that I am always grateful, because friendship like that is very rare.

Amongst all these people, was an oldie like myself (even though only a year younger ;P). She had the same fears as mine; “I am older than these children, what do I do if I have to be alone?” Within the space of probably 6 months, through an argument, shared train journeys and probably experiences that were more than what we thought we had in common, we became good friends. At present, I can call her my best friend, because truly and honestly, on a level that I have only ever connected with my two other best friends before, I connect with her. As we both say, we are soul mate sisters ^_^!

Through common experiences, shared understanding of them, our love of food, music( not always the same 😉 ) and shared values, I found another treasure of a friend who is an amazing person!


Why am I sharing this today? Simply because it is her birthday! ^_^ I am unwell and was not able to meet her to give her her presents, and wish her a very Happy Birthday!
So this post is dedicated to her! And also to my two other very precious best friends, and soul sisters of 11 years (Theirs is a story that will take a longer post 😉 )!

Thank You Pie! For being the great person and friend you are! No matter what happens, I believe in you and I love you child! Even though I have only known you for two years, it feels like much longer! Be strong always and I know you have the potential to become an even better and bigger person ( spiritually not physically lol) and Happpyy Birthday sister!! ^_^

Ju and Sheek, Thank you my soul sisters! For always having stuck by me, no matter how much the distance! I know I don’t say it often, but I am always very thankful and grateful for always having you two in my life! I will always be there for you (haha Friends!) It doesn’t matter how long I am away, because whenever I am back it always feels like we are back in F3 when I left but with an even stronger bond. Love you both! (P.S: Look what I found ^_^)

Finally, I am very proud of all of you. The growth I have seen and I see in you (and me ) is amazing and you are awesome human beings! ❤ To many more years of craziness and wonderful times!

Happy Birthday Pie! Love you sister! ^_^

    OMG! I had such horrible handwriting!
    And I should have been warned about the emotional downpour before being asked to read the post.
    Well turns out we’re in this for this life and a few more. I don’t care who I marry but it’s with you girls that I’m growing old with!
    Love you!
