You don't get to choose your family, but you do get to choose your friends. Because we are such diverse individuals, we often find ourselves seeking various types of friendships that fulfill different parts of our life – emotionally, physically, mentally or spiritually. It's rare to have one female friend that can fulfill all of our needs but if we do find one, she's a lifer and a rare gem.
Here are 5 must have female friends – where do you fit in?
1. Ra Ra Rachel
Love her. This woman's favorite word: yes. You could tell her you're that you've decided to become a female wrestler and she'd barely pause before the high-five and yelling "Go for it!" started. She's on your side and truly sees your beauty and your greatness,. She looks past your 2 failed marriages and those 5 extra pounds you gained. We all need this kind of friend.
2. Vacation Veronica
Sometimes you just need to get away with the girls or or maybe your guy's not up to it – this gal pal is the perfect traveling and road trip partner. This easy going companion may not be who you share your clothes with but she is comfortable with quiet (between the "OMG, did you hear about.." talk) and is mischievous just enough to add some spice to the trip (to sneak into that wedding party after midnight or says, "I'll wear my thong to the beach if you dol").
3. Truth Telling Tenille
Intent is what separates the constructive criticism from the out-right hurtful criticism. It may take time, but once your relationship has developed into speaking about the hard topics in a loving way (without jealousy or comparison or malice), you'd be smart to seek out this woman's valuable input and perspective.
4. Fun with Franny
One Saturday a female friend and I spent hours getting makeovers at the department store's cosmetic counter JUST because there was a sale. We had to, if you know what I mean. We each advised the make-up artist what our friend must have…because we knew what was best for her – really. Yes, there was a crisis download after the money was spent (and that's also why you need Ms. Ra Ra Rachel); this partnership is about spontaneous good times.
5. Sassy Sally
She's connected in the community and always knows where to go for what. If there's new happy hour locale swarming with hot guys or there's a 90% sale on Jimmy Choo Choo's, she the first to know. This gals a networking diva and loves bringing people together. Let her help you, she loves it!
These would be some great women to have in your life, huh?
Now here's my question for you? What do you have to offer to such awesome girlfriends?
Do you energize others with your presence and your life language? Do others want to hang out with you because you add value to their life? Or are you and your friends draining the energy out of each other?
Are you the kind of friend you want to have in your life?
The truth is, we attract relationships into our lives (friendships and otherwise) based on who we are and what we stand for. Much of this has to do with the Law of Attraction. We attract into our lives (things and people) that we are in vibrational harmony with.
Now this doesn't mean that for every person in your life – you are both exactly the same. Absolutely not. What it does mean is there is some common thread that pulls you together – energetically. As in what you have common thoughts, feelings, characteristics and even experiences.
Also, there are some people who become connected but seem to have nothing in common, how could this happen? The way I see it is, we often give attention to personality traits that we'd like to have ourselves. We are quiet and wish we could be more outgoing – we end up having a best friend who is the life of the party.
What it all comes down to is looking within to see what gifts we have to offer to others so that we can also enrich their life.
We all have so much to give and being connected to others is a natural element to our existence. We are much the same inside, as far as wanting to be seen, heard, valued and loved. Giving love to another has an positive effect in the body too – down to the cell level – not just for the receiver, but also for the giver.
So seek out the friends that would most enrich your life and take time to develop yourself in a way that you can also attract those friends naturally – show them how much you are there for them too!
