How Important Are Your Friends?

Friends are a sanity lifeline for most of us.   Our friendships evolve from the different aspects of our lives…childhood, women we met through our children, church, work and the list is endless.  The important word here is friends.

Yes, we can annoy each other, though somehow it doesn’t matter because we love and appreciate each other.  Friendships are important for our well-being.

Friends make you laugh, listen to you when you’re sad, angry or confused, share the happy moments that bring a smile to your face.    Think about each of your friends and ask “how am I different since knowing this person or what has he/she taught me that has added to my life?”

Women’s Group: A Second Family

A fortunate thing about a women’s group is that there is always someone to spill your guts to, listen wholeheartedly, tell it like it is, and to carry you through to the next stage of your life. At some point, the group becomes your second family and telling the members your deepest darkest secrets and intimacies comes naturally.

It has been said that humor is one of the best cures for what ails you. If that’s the case, a women’s group can accommodate that need as well. If prayer and meditation is something that guides you, a group can lift you up and be there to listen—the key word being listen.

What Makes the Women in Your Life Special?

Women come in and out of our lives on a daily basis…some are a constant and others gently bump into us and then quickly move on.   What do we do with those connections?   Do we ignore or treasure them?

We believe that as individuals women are powerful in their own right.  Anytime you bring two or more women together, the strength multiplies significantly and the impact can be unexpected.  Even brief moments can spark an idea, warm our hearts with memories and make a difference in how we feel about ourselves. 

Here are some examples of wonderful women experiences:

Listening Is An Essential Skill

Listening is an absolutely essential life skill. It’s even more important as a skill for someone who is part of a successful women’s group.

Listening is a way of building rapport. When you listen to someone, you learn more about them. You understand what’s going on in their life, how they think, where they’re coming from, what experiences they are drawing on and more. In turn, the person you are listening to feels that you understand them better; they are thankful for the support and the empathy you are providing them, just by being a good listener.

Change Your Life: Start a Women’s Group

Whether you are someone with a full, active life or with very little going on in your everyday life, you likely feel like there is something missing from your days.  For many women, that hole can be filled by being a part of a women’s group. So if you have a void in your life, why not be proactive and start a women’s group of your own?

Although it may feel safe and easier to simply find a women’s group that is already in existence, you will gain so much more by starting your own group from scratch. What will you gain?
