I meant to write this post for a while now, 5 things every GIRL needs in her life, let’s just say motherhood got in the way the last few days; how ironic. This past week we celebrated Women’s Day, a day I was so proud to be a woman, to show my kids (not just my daughters) that a woman can be so much more than what they see every day. Honestly, I’m not sure what they see every day. In my head, I think they see a frumpy housewife who can’t manage her time because I’m always complaining that we’re late or haven’t gotten to do this or that or whatever I have on my to-do list that particular day. Anyway, that’s another blog post.
As I got
older and wiser, I started to think about the things I really need in my life vs the things I have. See during hard times a girl must really look to her blessings, and I’m not talking about material things. I’m not talking about money, jewelry, or how many LIKES she has on social media, I’m talking about the things that will show how she lived her life. The things I’m talking about is accomplished ONLY by how she lives her life.
5 Things Every Girl Needs In Her Life
This is a must, in dark times and in good times have a little faith girlfriend. One of my favorite pep-talk for myself is: This too shall pass. I firmly believe this, and I’ve had my share of dark times. Have FAITH that things will work out because it will! No matter what your struggle is today; healthwise, financially, or family issues, have some faith that betters days are coming. There’s a plan for your life, and things happen for a reason, even the bad things sometimes can teach us a lesson, and we’re stronger for it.
I’m not talking about the 200+ friends you have on Facebook. I’m talking about a handful of girlfriends that will never or should never judge you. The ones that no matter if you text them at 2 am or 2 pm they are there for you, the ones that understand that sometimes life gives you lemons and instead of feeling pity for you, they will give you 101 ways to make lemonade 🙂 Those are the friends every girl needs!
Girlfriend, in order to be successful, a girl must have goals. Not the I’m going to stay under 1500 calories today goal, bigger ones. I’m talking life goals here. Get a life planner here and start with a few things on your bucket list, put some things down that you want to accomplish in the next 5 years, learn some new skills, where do you see yourself in 10 years, you get my drift yet? ok then, moving on.
Yes, I know all you single girls are going to hate this one but really having someone to make you feel butterflies in your stomach isn’t a bad thing. Whether we’re talking about a spouse, partner, companion, try to seize the journey to fall in love. Some love affairs don’t last but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try again. It’s been proven that people with a love life live longer and they live life with more joy and if you are already with someone, hold them a littler tighter tonight will ya 🙂
Alrighty now, I’m not lecturing ok and I’m not talking about respect as in what people feel for you. I’m talking about what you see when you look in the mirror… yes self-respect. Every day we wake up and we live our lives, we make decisions after decisions and those choices impact our lives instantly and some later down the line. What we say to friends and family over the phone, how we reply to comments on social media, how we teach our children to treat others, how we react when the server brings us the wrong food. Those decisions affect us and others in our lives. Make those decisions and choices something we can look ourselves in the mirror and be proud of.
