Becoming the best version of yourself

The Power of Girlfriends – – –

on June 26, 2013

I think sometimes as “single” women, we think too much or focus too heavily on NOT having a man in our lives.  We look around at all the “couples” and wonder why our marriage didn’t last?  How are we suddenly supposed to operate as a single person in a world full of duo’s?

I’ve just returned from an amazing trip to celebrate an amazing birthday.  Okay – – – I admit it – – – it might have had a “zero” in the birthday year!  The first part of the trip was spent with the GF’s!  The girlfriends had been warned over two years ago to start planning on traveling with me for this very special day and they did not let me down.

9 of us!  There’s a saying, “like herding cats” – it fits, LOL!!  We are about as diverse as it can be yet the one theme that runs through the heart of this group is the appreciation for having girlfriends.  We have different backgrounds, different goals in life.  Our ages span about ten years with me being right in the middle.  Some are married, some divorced, some with significant others.

Half are working, most have children approaching if not already in adulthood and a couple are already grandmothers.  They come from diverse backgrounds but the appreciation of the need for GF’s is strong amongst us all.  So don’t let yourself get too caught up in the search for the perfect man.  Firstly – they don’t exist so you’ll be very disappointed.  But more importantly, look around you at those women who have stayed in your life even if you are the inconvenient “single” friend and cherish your moments together.

Reach out to your GF’s today, let them know how important they are in your life.  Thank them for being there for you.  Whether you just have one or many, they are your strength and your compass.  I can’t imagine my life without them, I hope I never have to.  Love you girls – thanks for the memories!!!
