Reverb 10: Friendship

December 16 Prompt: Friendship
How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst?

My sister is my best friend.  Sometimes it's hard to believe she's the younger one; she's truly one of the wisest, coolest, most courageous people I know.  I could sing her praises all day, but what really impacted me over the past year was the example she set for me by following her passion.  She was thriving in a great job as a Technical Writer, but she knew her real calling lay elsewhere.  A talented poet, she decided to quit her job and apply to MFA programs.  Watching her pursue her creative dreams prompted me to take a good look at my own career path and re-evaluate what I really wanted in life.  My sister encouraged me to explore a career in holistic health, and with her support (and the support of other friends and family), I quit my job and enrolled at IIN.
