The past few weeks I have teetered between totally stressing out and just feeling kind of, well, blah. I knew what would make me feel better, the same thing that always makes me feel better... girl time!
But it is hard for me to just call someone and feel like I'm complaining, especially when things aren't that bad.
Luckily, before I even had to reach out, several friend had called or texted to check in on me. Isn't it nice how those closest to you, just seem to know when you need a little TLC?
And then there's the times when I don't even know that I need support, but a friend checks in, and I can't stop talking about whatever it is, that I didn't know I needed to talk about.
Do you have that group of girls you can just sit and talk with for hours? Isn't it the best? One minute you are laughing so hard you're crying, and the next you're in a deep discussion about life's challenges.
Here are a few pics with my besties, the inspiration behind this post...
Obvi, having friends to share life celebrations is just as important. But they say you find out who your true friends are when life gets tough, and I agree. It's easy to talk about fun exciting topics, but it's the people that aren't afraid to help you navigate life's
b.s. crap that turn out to be genuine friends.
Which makes me happy to be a girl, because I don't know that guys get quite as much emotional support from their friends as we do, and definitely not as openly.
To be able to freely share emotions, fears, and our wildest dreams, and get guaranteed support, is girl power at it's finest.
I couldn't be more thankful that I've been able to carry such friendships through so many years and multiple cities. Who knows where I would be without the coffee dates, wine nights, phone calls, and even text convos that last so long, my hands begin to ache.
This blog post is dedicated to all the supportive women out there, in my life and in yours.
Us girls need to stick together because when life is unstable, there is nothing like rock solid friendships to help you keep it together.
Happy Friday... phone a friend! :)
