Every One Needs a "Ride Or Die"
Everyone else calls her my favorite sister, but NO. I don't have a favorite. I do, however, have different relationship with each of my siblings. Nikki is one of my biggest supporters and if I had a fan base, she would be my number one fan. I'm a firm believer that when we have solid people in our corner, even if it's just a few, their support helps us be bigger, greater and bolder. Our confidence, courage and tenacity shifts into higher gear when we have the right people cheering for us. We call these the "RIDE OR DIE!" We all need them.
I am very fortunate and blessed to find strong support within my family. I mean, we got each others backs! My momma, my daddy, my sisters and my brother got me. We love each other unconditionally but there's this one in particular who stands out (a lil' bit) lol. This is the one I call my Ride or Die.
She gets me. She understands me. She prays with me and for me. She believes in me even when I don't believe in myself. She even see's for me when my vision is fading. I've cried tears that have soaked her shirt over my marriage. At times, she even cried with me. She's always looking out for my best. When I say something stupid and she thinks I'm full of crap, she lets me know. I can talk to her about anything plus we have so much in common and love spending time together. We love travel, spa days, mani's & pedi's, and sitting around watching our favorite show, I Shouldn't Be Alive.
Not sure where I would be right now if it wasn't for my amazing support. I will say this, when you have a great support system, they expect much from you (not more than you are capable of but enough to stretch you and push you beyond your comfort zone) I try to meet those expectations. I want others to expect me to be great, expect me to do better, expect me to go higher. Some things are nearly impossible when you don't have the right people in your corner. Some of the difficult life decisions we have to make becomes do-able when our support is solid. Quitting a job, starting a business, traveling abroad, getting a divorce, going back to school, leaving an abusive relationship, turning around a failing business, all takes support.
I am so grateful for my sister, Nikki and all the support I receive from my family. Without them, I'm not sure how I'd make it through this process or even if I would have the courage or strength to do so.
Who's your greatest support? Do you have loved ones, kin or not who are holding you up? Who's your "ride or die"?
