An open letter to my brilliant friend Charlie

“Dear Charlie,

I think you are wondering, what this is all about. And I’m guessing you are a bit shocked, that’s okay. I usually get this haha. But you are an amazing inspiration to me and I want you and the world to know, how special you are. How amazing you are. How beautiful you are. So this is dedicated to you, my friend.

I’ve been an admirer of your work for quite some to be honest. I love reading your blog and I thought everything you wrote was on point. On fleek. Or whatever the cool kids say nowadays. Anyway, it’s safe to say that I saw – and still see – you as my idol. An inspiration. Every day again.

So imagine when I you told me, you wanted me at Daily Focal! Wow, I was so shocked and happy. For me it meant a lot. Not only would I’ve been working with a great time and have a platform to develop my own blogging, but it also meant work together with you. That was such a cool thought and to this day, I don’t really know how I believe this happened. It’s so great to get involved with the people you admire in blogging and now I am 🙂

I’ve touched the topic, but Daily Focal is truly something where you can that Charlie is bloody amazing. She is the founder of this website where you can find articles on a variety of topics: Lifestyle, Entertainment & Mental Health. Written by bloggers. It’s truly amazing and when I first heard of it, I was really enthusiastic. I didn’t feel comfortable yet, asking about joining because all the bloggers involved, I considered so much better than me. But I’m glad I eventually did, because it has brought me both joy and I’ve grown with my writing.

The most amazing thing about Daily Focal for me is that the power of the collective. We all are different bloggers with different insights and opinions, but together we are strong and make Daily Focal as unique as it. And for that we have only person to thank, and that is Charlie. You have founded this, you run it and even when times are dark for yourself or for others, you keep fighting and running it. For that I admire you greatly.

Your personal blog is one of the best blogs out there and I don’t know how many times I recommended it to other bloggers and non-bloggers. To me it’s an example of how blogging should be, because you are so down to earth. You are such a nice blogger, very approachable and that’s how it should be. In times of blogging negativity, it were your words and actions that restored my faith. Thank you for that.

You’ve recently started a blog for a more local audience and I admire that so much. I really want to do that as well. It’s such an inspiring idea and you are one of the most prolific bloggers around. I’m so incredibly proud of you!

That brings me to the fantastic person you are Charlie. The above is absolutely fantastic, but to know the real you, is great. I feel so privileged and lucky to have you as a friend Charlie. You are very kind, sweet, genuine and lovely. You are always supporting your friends, even when you have some tough times yourself. You have taught me to think more like a good person and you have taught me my word. I can’t write down in words how much I’m grateful for your friendship and advice.

You never fail to make me smile or laugh, encourage and motivate me. You truly are one of the strongest person I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. It’s amazing to see you grow over the last months and it really gives me joy that you are slaying it right now. Your blog and instagram inspire me very single day.

You are so uncommonly kind, it’s really rare and I know that everything you say comes from the heart. I can see you really care about your loved ones and that is really amazing. I’m so proud that I know you and that we are friends. I’m proud of everything you do and I hope we will be friends for a very long time. I know my life is better and more complete with you in it, thank you for everything!

Please never change and be your brilliant self, shine on you beautiful diamond!

Your friend,
