Living a happy and empowered life that is rich and fulfilling can’t be done alone. It’s our connection to others that gives life it’s richness and adds meaning to our precious time on earth. 

Today’s exercise is designed to help us celebrate the magic and wonder of female friendship. It will put gratitude in your heart, which is a vital element to happiness.

Our girlfriend connection is critical for living a magnificent life. It’s important to stay in touch with friends while tasting a smidgen of the carefree life we had before work and family responsibilities became our priority.

Where would we be without our core group of girlfriends?

Your friends love you, laugh with you, and stand by your side when facing fears and upsets. They validate that you are not alone, crazy, or paranoid. They inspire, support and uplift you, providing the type of therapy that no money can buy because it’s all wrapped in loving care.

As a matter of fact, research now tells us friendships are even more critical to our health and well-being than family relationships. Just one more reason to revel in the joys of girl time!

The Girlfriend Gratitude Exercise:

Take a moment and give a silent prayer of thanks for each and every one of your friends. Then, let them know what a difference they’ve made in your life by sending them a card, giving a call, or sending a heartfelt email or text.

Make their day as they’ve so often made yours, by letting them know how grateful you are for their love, laughter, and support.

It will increase your happiness today, and theirs as well, when you take the time to celebrate your gal pals!
