In case you missed it, yesterday was National Best Friend Day. Don’t feel too bad if you missed it, as technically it’s an unofficial holiday and not yet widely known. It’s also never too late to let your best friend know how much you care for and appreciate them.
It also doesn’t matter who or what your best friend is. It could be your significant other, a life-long companion, a sibling, a parent, your children, someone you just met, a pet, or even something inanimate.
Even if you missed out on National Best Friends Day yesterday, since it’s unofficial, you can make any day you want your own personal Best Friend Day. Just go ahead and pick a day and make that your Best Friend Day. It could be today, tomorrow, sometime next week, or sometime next month. Obviously, you don’t want to wait too long because you don’t want to keep your best friend waiting, but pick a day to forgo all other responsibilities and do something special with your best friend. It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as it’s something you’ll both enjoy.
If your best friend isn’t nearby for whatever reason, it doesn’t mean you can’t do something to commemorate the occasion. Send them a text, write them a letter, call them on the phone, or better yet, post something publically on social media so your best friend, not to mention the whole world, knows how you feel. Your feelings about your best friend shouldn’t a secret; in fact, you should be more than willing to let everyone know who your best friend is and why.
The bottom line of National Best Friend Day is doing something to show your best friend that you care. All you have to do is speak from the heart. But if that’s too difficult to do, then a quick Google search can open up a world of wonderful quotes about friendship that can help you to find the right words to sum up how you feel about your best friend.
Here’s our favorite, which comes from Roman playwright, Plautus, “Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend.”
