Hi ya’ll happy Monday! How was your guys’ weekend? Anything fun?! Well, if you guys follow me on Instagram then you guys probably know that Taco Fest took place this week… and yes I stuffed my face with tacos, because how could I not? Lol Had the best mulita ever! (google it! 😉)
I went with my good friend Deya (who happens to have a YouTube channel you guys should totally check her out-Life with Deya) and it was such a great time! It got me thinking of how fortunate I am to find all these amazing people in my life I’m so proud to call them my friends.
So for today’s post, I wanted to briefly give you recap of Taco Fest and share a few things I’ve learned about the value of friendships and how to keep them alive and thriving.
First of taco fest was incredible! Initially there was supposed to be 4 of us going but a few things came up so it that’s why itendeed up being just the two of us.
We began with margaritas of course, and then we walked around to browse around to see what peeked our interest. We took a few pictures at a photo booth and then headed to dive in for the kill aka the tacos lol.
We ate at Taqueria Revolucion, Aqui es Texcoco, and Tu Taco Taco Shop. First one was ok, we felt like we’d had better, and the next two were amazing! For the first one we ordered carne asada quesa-tacos, the second place I got birria (which I discovered was lamb and was bomb!), and Deya got another quesa taco, but an actual legit one (I wish I had pictures!) And lastly mulitas! Oh my gosh! So so good! If you take anything away from today’s post, please be sure that trying a mulita is one of them if you haven’t tried one. Seriously, you will thank me later.🙂
I had such an amazing time that day, that it got me thinking of all the amazing blessings I have in my life. I have never been a girl whose had tons of friends, it actually has been a bit tough making friends in my life time. I’m very introverted, shy, and if we’re being completely honest here, I think at times people might misinterpret that as being rude, but I promise it’s probably just my intense awkward-ness.
Anyway, during our strolls through taco fest, we spent some time talking about our friendships, some that we’ve shared with other people and how those people or friendships can affect who you are.
Friends can either make you or break you. I believe we trust friends sometimes more than we trust family members. We put so much love, energy, and faith in strangers to be there to love and support us and sometimes that can go well and sometimes not so much.
Friendships are like relationships, they take work, dedication, attention, care, and trust. And even though, I’ve been through my share of bad friendships, I have learned this:
- In order to have friends you have to be a friend. Not just someone you hit up to party. You have to be there through the good, the bad, the ugly, and the woah of it all. True friends are there for each other not just to party but through all of it.
- Be receptive. I’ve learned that this one can be hard for some people, but friends who truly care and value your friendship will do it. Taking in feedback is important because you have to be open minded and considerate about that person’s feelings. Communication is key, just like in any other relationship.
- Trust is everything. Again, friendships are relationships and like I mentioned earlier, at times we find trusting strangers more than family members. Trust is what creates a beautiful unbreakable bond. It’s sacred ladies! Cherish it!
- Forgiveness. We’re human! No one is perfect. Sometimes things happen, and you’ll know those friendships that are worth fighting for.
I may not see my friends as often as possible because, well I’m a mother now and have other duties but I can proudly say that my friends are always there when I need to talk, to vent, to cry. You guys know who you are, and I don’t think there’s words to say thank you for being there for me.
Each one of my friends contributes something different and special in my life. I hope that they know that even though we have busy lives, are parents, or don’t live close, I’m a text away or call away.
What do you guys think is the key to successful friendships?
Till’ the next post!
Xo, Guadalupe ♥
