Have you found yourself an accountability partner yet? If not, I highly recommend you do. An accountability partner is someone who motivates you, inspires you, pesters you, and loves you. It's someone who you trust with your biggest secrets, goals and fears. It's someone who pushes you to set your goals high and then actualize them. I've had an accountability partner for years, I just never knew how to label it.
My best bear Hillary has been there for me through thick and thin. When the shit hits the fan or I start going crazy I know I can always count on her for feel good advice and a pep talk to propel me back into my motivation swing.
She's the friend with whom I talk ALL DAY EVERYDAY and we still never run out of things to talk about. Ever. She knows all my hopes and dreams and wishes and fears, and supports me 100%. She kicks my ass when I need it and happy dances with me about my biggest and best accomplishments.
I can only hope that she feels the same way about me and I'm HALF the friend she is to me.
Everyone should have an accountability partner - someone who you talk to everyday. Someone who makes sure you aren't just farting around all the time watching marathons of Say Yes to the Dress on Netflix (note I said ALL THE TIME). Someone who makes sure you're meeting your goals and reaching your fullest potential. At the very least, someone who shares in your joys and makes your sorrows a little less painful.
I love you, bear. Till the day I die. Thanks for being my rock and dealing with my silliness.
