When people see us together on the beach they often ask us if we are there to celebrate something. They seem surprised that we are just there to spend time with each other. Like we need a "reason" to go on a trip with our friends. I suppose maybe we are there celebrating something... FRIENDSHIP. One thing that I have learned over the years is how important it is to spend time with your friends. Women need the bonds of close friendships. It's easy to get lost in a relationship, building a career or raising children but you really have to keep your girlfriends close and make an effort to spend time with them. Your girlfriends support you, cheer you on, challenge you and understand you in ways that your husband, children or boss can't. Don't get lost in trying to be everything to everyone else in your life - take time to just be you and that will make you better at all the other stuff. I hope 20 years from now I am still heading off to the beach with a bunch of fun girlfriends.
What do you do to spend time with your friends to balance out your busy life?
