There comes a time when you realize that your life has been so busy, yet lonely because you haven’t spent much time with your girlfriends. Last week I realized that I was in the position–I needed some genuine girl time.
So, after talking with a friend and former co-worker, I decided to implement a monthly “Girls’ Night” amongst some of my friends and their friends. These nights could be spent at a Mexican restaurant over 2-for-1 margaritas, someone’s house over a couple bottles of wine, or wherever, just as long as it’s just the girls and we have a good, unabridged time.
Our first night was a small affair, just three of us over half-priced house margaritas (on the rocks, with salt) and a chicken quesadilla. It was mostly a night of catching up, but it was great to reconnect.
This led me to believe you have to just stop yourself from whatever has been keeping you down, and break the mold of the usual evening and just let go. Be unapologetic. Be happy. Embrace your girlfriends. They’re there for you no matter what, so be thankful.
