You know how life is full of things you don't want to do.
Well it's that way for me.
Most people don't know this about me but I would prefer to live life in the middle of a large partial of land in Montana, venturing out from there. I would classify myself as a "nomadic hermit."
So much of life that deals with people I really don't want to do.
Take last night for instance.
I had been invited to go out with 2 local friends and an out of town guest. When it came down to it I just felt like I didn't want to go. I'd rather sit at home, sleep, hang with the family, settle in to my hermatic ways.
I knew not only did I need to have some girlfriend time but that this girlfriend time was well worth the investment.
Seems to me that a lot of women struggle with relationships with other women. Probably because of past hurts and other issues. I know I really didn't have any close girlfriends until I moved here to Florida.
For me it was a combination of being hurt by female friends in the past, not investing in relationships when times got tough, moving a lot as an adult and then of course my desire to live an isolated life;-)
I've learned that there are a special few who are worth investing in. A special few who get me and I get them or at least we can bear each other for more than 5 minutes.
As women we need to not look at what relationships we don't have instead look at the ones right around us and invest in them.
So last night was my night to do what I didn't want,
and ya know what?
Of course you know what I'm going to say...
I had a blast!
In fact I'd rather hang with them again tonight!
But I can't.
Instead we've made plans already for a Paula Dean Trip 2010- girl style!
Gotta love doing what ya don't want and friends who drive you to do so!
