Girlfriends. There is something surreal about having incredible girlfriends. They encourage and push you to achieve your goals, are your rock during strenuous times, and call you out when you need to be humbled! You can talk about anything and everything! I mean EVERYTHING! You can argue, and agree to disagree, but in the end, you’ve got each others backs! You have a love for one another. A bloodless sisterhood. Consider yourself blessed if you have a group of fabulous ladies as a support system! If you do not have quality girlfriends, here are 3 qualities you should look for when finding good girlfriends!
1. Observe how they treat others. Look for someone who treats everyone with respect. Observe how they talk about their family, friends and people they consider to be close with when they are not around. Are they uplifting them or tearing them down? Stick with the gals who encourage others!
2. See how they handle constructive criticism. This is HUGE! We are not all perfect, but I hope we strive to be the best version of ourselves. A friend who can give and accept constructive criticism is a keeper!
3. Do they inspire you? We have goals and dreams about how we see our future. A good friend acknowledges your strengths and encourages you to work at cultivating the life you want to live. Not only do they inspire you for your goals, but YOU are inspired by their ACTIONS. The way they treat people, the way they go after a goal, the way they live life inspires you to live your life to the fullest as well.
That being said, here are some of my GALENTINES! I was honored to spend a day at The Renaissance with these incredible women! Our mini staycation was hosted by My Haute Society, The Renaissance (a bank converted to a hotel!) and The Range in downtown Denver. We laughed A LOT while Alejandro from Avid Visuals snapped photos of us! Now of course, “girls just wanna have fun!” So we popped the bubbly and got to sippin’ and gigglin’!
