I had a chance to catch up with a friend. She has struggled at times. At times with health, other times with love. But when I saw her last, she was glowing. She was glowing from good health at last – and the newly found boobs – and from the love and joy she was experiencing from her new relationships (she’s in a Polyamorous relationship). And it was so wonderful to see!
I don’t care whether you agree with her health choices, or love choices, that’s not the point. The point is that too often we do not celebrate the joyous times, the time that our friends are doing well. I’m not sure why. I don’t know if it’s jealousy or if it’s just taking things for granted. But we don’t celebrate those things in ourselves and in others.
Life is hard. It’s going to be hard on all of us – if there’s one guarantee it’s that we WILL be thrown curve balls. So when you have a moment of joy – shout it from the rooftops. When you have a moment to celebrate someone, do it. So I’m doing it as best I can.

Your dress is beautiful! Such a work of art, as is the photography. As for not celebrating with our friends in times of joy, I think that sometimes it is appropriate and sometimes it isn’t. In the case of your friend, both of the choices you mentioned will bring her harm in the long run. It is more loving to warn than to celebrate. “Better are the wounds of a friend than the kisses of an enemy.”
