Becky over at From Mrs. to Mama really inspired me tonight. After reading over this post upon returning home from a girls wine night, I just want to talk about friends. Specifically, how important it is to have girl friends. Friends that know your darkest secret, that you can talk to about your mistakes in your relationships, that you can laugh with and smile with, that you can be yourself around no matter what and know that they are still going to be your friend. I am lucky enough to have friends like this. Just a few of them, but even more special because of that.
I have never been a girl to have a TON of girl friends. That was just never me. But lately, as Matt and I talk more about taking our relationship to the next level, I am really starting to realize the importance of having good girl friends. The importance of making time for those friends, no matter how crazy life seems.
It is SO vital that you, as a woman, have outlets. Whether it is just to discuss nail polish or your week with , YOU NEED THAT. I am starting to realize how uplifting it is to spend time with other girls. It doesn't matter how similar or different we are, what backgrounds we come from, what current stage we are in in our lives, just BEING women together is so powerful. Having that support system is something you cannot find aside from a good group of friends.
I would really encourage you to reach out to friends that you maybe have not spent much time with lately, to plan a coffee date with them just to catch up. If you don't feel you have this, shoot me an e-mail and I would be happy to talk with you. Again, I don't care if it is a friend halfway across the world, or your roommate, you need female companionship. On the flip side, I would also encourage you to think about those friends that might not be healthy for you. I have weeded out a lot of friends over the years, and although it was not easy, I know it was for the best and that I am fulfilled and happy now because of those decisions. Amen.
