It’s winter. Winter means COLD!… the snow flurries are flying, teeth are chattering, and you’re MORE than ready to ditch this country for some nice HOT *sun*! If you’re in a relationship your first reaction is probably to draaaaaag the boy along with you because there’s nothing like some sand, surf and unlimited drinks to strengthen your bond- right? Vacations with girlfriends are a TON of fun- so vacation with your GUY should be even better, right?
Well I say that is a bEaUtiFul thing! I do! Its WONDERFUL to find *beauty* in another, especially another woman. Because women can too often be cruel… and harsh to each other…. women are SO often competitive and judgmental. It’s sad. And it’s reflected on TV and movies… and rears its ugly head in the workplace. And even if the criticism *should* be about SKILL or TALENT or BEHAVIOUR…. a woman’s “looks” are always just thrown in, tossed in for added ammo into any barrage of insults or criticism. Even when completely irrelevant! And especially when it’s other women doing the mud-slinging!!! Terrible. We are our own worst enemies!
It’s a sunny day outside, not many clouds in the sky… temperature is *perfect*, wind is just right breezy but not gusting, and There. You. Are!

It is always hard to watch a friend self-destruct. From smoking to drugs, dating jerks to loving and marrying the completely wrong guy…. to even WORSE….inflicting physical pain on themselves. It’s hard to watch, and harder still to watch and do NOTHING. Don’t you just wish you could smack them on the forehead and just snap them out of it?
Nothing compares to a friendship between women. Only a woman can relate to the pangs of menstrual cramps, the struggle to not eat your feelings, and offer resolutions rather than criticism. No man, regardless of how much he loves you, can relate to the surreal joy of finding the perfect dress or succeeding at something you once thought impossible. Female coworkers are the only ones who get the challenges of working and competing with men on their own turf. Women are warm, intuitive, analytical and don’t secretly hope to get in your pants one day. And a BFF is the best woman of all because she loves you at your lowest points… and celebrates you at your highest points.
Through our unending quest to make the big money, many people find themselves following someone else’s rules to get there.
