Alicia’s showing love for the woman who has always been in her corner since day one.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“Grab someone that lifts you up and keep ‘em close.” — Alicia Keys 🤗
Day-ones. Cheerleaders. Ride-or-dies. We all deserve someone in our lives who accepts us just as we are and sees all of our shine. The word “friend” doesn’t begin to describe it. They’re the people who hold space for our hard times and shortcomings — but have no problem reminding us of all our gifts when we need a pep talk. Alicia’s Instagram post, which highlights her mom (a.k.a. “bestie @ladybroadway”) sums up that warm-and-fuzzy feeling and then some. It’s a rare gift to be fully ourselves in someone else’s presence with zero fears of being judged and total confidence that they’ll stick by us, no matter what.
When we feel unconditionally cherished and seen, we’re able to bring that same love and support to other facets of our lives; from our ability to empower others to how we navigate life’s ups and downs.
So the next time you find yourself in the presence of someone like that? Get a little closer. Hold ‘em a little longer. And, make sure they know how much you appreciate them.
