This past week I decided that it was high time for a girls night get together, complete with cute appetizers and some serious wine. My ladies and I had all been going through a little bit of a funk over the past few weeks, what with the close of summer and the walls closing starting to close in a little bit at our day jobs. We needed some time to let loose, have fun and get re-inspired – and we all know there’s no better way to do any of that than to have a girls night.
We settled into our Friday night eating mini caprese salad skewers, cheese and crackers, olives and assorted other tasty snack items accompanied by some perfectly sized glasses (read: large) of Pino and Rose from Anew Wine. Feeling fancy and carefree is awfully easy with a glass of Rosé, and setting aside time for girl talk and inspiration is a must.
It never ceases to amaze me how life changing it is to have a girlboss gang surrounding you as you trot down this oh-s0-bumpy road of twenty-something life. It’s not just the wine talking when I say that these women constantly change my life with their compassion, strength and integrity. There is never a problem too difficult to solve, a complaint to worn out to hear, or a moment of despair too hard to overcome.
I think it’s easy for us to feel very alone at times during our twenties. We may feel like our struggles are uniquely our own and we may be afraid to share those struggles with others, or we may just be too down in the dumps to realize that what we are digging ourselves deeper and isolating ourselves.
The power of women changes that. By surrounding ourselves with ladies that aren’t afraid to kick us into gear when we need it, but are also generous with their time, wisdom, love and encouragement can alter the course of a decade. Take a moment and think about all of the times that you have laughed with your best girl friends, all of the times they have been your shoulder to lean on, all of the times they have spotted you some cash for dinner, all of the times that they have drunkenly giggled the night away on your sofa.
I can’t say it enough, having a girlboss gang surrounding will dramatically change the way you experience life. So, my advice to you – pop our your phone and organize a ladies night. Get yourself some tasty wine (I recommend the Rosé from Anew) a big glass and some snacks and settle in for some inspiration.
