For Us (and Our Fabulous Friends)
Posted by Sarah Parkhurst on February 26, 2010 at 5:55 PM
I was having a REALLY bad day and one of my girlfriends happened to send this to me. It brought tears to my eyes because it's easy to forget that as bad as it gets... it could always be worse. Sometimes the little things bring us down and prevent us from appreciating all of the great things around us and in our lives.
This website has allowed me to get and give advice much like I do with my girlfriends (and sometimes I feel more comfortable doing it on here because I know if I write anonymously no one will know it's me LOL). So it's my hope that reading this brightens your day like it did for me and that all of you realize how amazing you are.... Enjoy!
Celebrating Ourselves and Our Girlfriends!!!
I'm only as strong as the cocktails I drink, the hairspray I use, and the girlfriends I have. Here's to you! Why do we only have parties for each other when one of us gets married, pregnant, has a birthday, or retires? What would most of us do without our sisters, confidants, and shopping, lunching and traveling girlfriends? Let's celebrate each other for each other's sake!
Someone will always be prettier.
Someone will always be smarter.
Someone's house will be bigger.
Someone will drive a better car.
Someone's children will do better in school.
And someone's husband will fix more things around the house.
So let it go, and love you and your circumstances.
Think about it.
The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart.
And the most highly favored woman on your job may be unable to have children.
And the richest woman you know, she's got the car, the house, the clothes....might be lonely.
And the word says if "I have not love, I am nothing."
So, again, love yourself.
Love who you are. Look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say "I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!"
"Winners make things happen. Losers let things happen."
Be Blessed ladies and pass this on to encourage another woman.
"To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world".
