I have decided to write about a person every week, and the person that I want to write about this week is my really good friend Justina.
Now, before that, why I’ve decided to write about a person each week is because there have been some people who have really touched my life before, some people who really inspire me, some people who make me want to be a better person, and some people who I just find plain amazing. I’d like to share with you how these people have inspired me for the positive and made my life a better place.
I met Justina about three years ago if I’m not mistaken. She was new at work and she caused quite a stir at first, because she was very pretty and well dressed and all the boys at work went a little cuckoo over her. We weren’t colleagues for very long, she quit a few months later but we always maintained our friendship.
Here’s what I find very admirable about her though.
She really is her own person. She quit her job and went full time into doing a blogshop business. Now, I don’t now how many people can really do something like this full time and really sustain their whole livelihood. I find this really impressive – I started a blogshop part time when I was in university but it never really went anywhere and I ended up wearing most of the clothes myself.
She’s very firm in her ideas and in her own beliefs, she’s not the type of girl that you can push over. She’s got a very strong idea of what’s right and what’s not, and will not tolerate nonsense. Don’t get me wrong, she’s definitely not some strict, schoolmistressy type, if you were to meet her you would find a very charming, well dressed pretty girl, but what I like most about her is that she really does not take nonsense. At the same time, she is very tolerant, and very giving so it’s quite an amazing package.
She’s also a go to friend for me. She’s somebody I trust, and somebody that I really do turn to when I’m in need of advice or an opinion. She has this knack of putting a lot of things into perspective and also, seeing things in a totally different light which I never did before.
There are a lot of other good points about her, but these are really the parts about her that I find most admirable and also inspirational. How many 27 year old girls do you know who run their own businesses and are doing well? (She was younger then when she did it, too!)
So, a toast to the friendship. A toast to a really good girlfriend who has made my life a better place, and who I am very glad to have met. There are some people in this world who are special, and who are different, and who are just truly good friends, and she really is one of them.
