Best friends send a “check in-text” to see if you need an excuse to end your date early. They show up with seven-up and movies when you are sick, and they don’t give up shopping until you have found the perfect wedding dress. True friends hang out after your party and help you clean up and do the dishes. They show up with meals after your baby is born, and they offer to take your toddler to the park when they know you need a break.

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn’t, matters not a jot. The possibility is always there.-Monica Baldwin
Every morning is a fresh beginning. Every day is the world made new. Today is a new day. Today is my world made new. I have lived all my life up to this moment, to come to this day. This moment – this day – is as good as any moment in all eternity. I shall make of this day – each moment of this day – a heaven on earth. This is my day of opportunity.-Dan Custer
The message of Clement Stone is clear: have an ambitious goal and shoot for it. If you miss the goal, you’ll still have achieved something. The quote also indicates that even if things don’t go as planned they can still turn out to be a success. This means for us that we have to be willing to make adaptations as we go along. Without this flexibility we will focus too much of our attention on the fact that we did not reach the moon, while we have already landed on an amazing star.
If there is something many of us admire about successful people it is that they do not waste their time complaining about the difficulties they encounter. Sometimes it feels as if they did not even notice the hardship; they were too busy looking for a solution. Instead of focusing all their attention upon the problems and challenges, they are actively looking for ways to improve themselves in order to be able to overcome the issues.
“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
May we ask you a question? How often do you say, ‘Good morning, world!’ Yes, we are used to greeting our close ones in the morning, but only a few of us greet the whole world and all its creatures.

You might even want to send her a hand written card telling her all of the reasons why you love her, and include some words of wisdom about the power of a great friendship. Plan out a besties-only day of going to your favorite restaurants, watching your fave movie, and serving up some BFF cocktails (if you're 21 and up). There's truly no one else in the world who makes you laugh so hard you could cry, and understands you even when you're making absolutely no sense, so you want to show her how much you care.
