Thought for the Week


I found this pin on Pinterest the other week and fell in love with it. In high school and college I didn't have a lot of girlfriends; I mostly hung with the boys. They just weren't as mean and easier to get along with. They didn't care what I looked like; they weren't judging me on the fact that I wore the same outfit last Tuesday or that my my nail polish was hot pink and I had on red shorts. {:GASP:} 

In college I roomed with 2 girls in an apartment that made me go slightly crazy. The two were always ticked at each other and fighting so instead of hanging out with them I would walk next door to the guys apartment and spend most of my time there. Yes, my flip flops stuck to the floor as I walked, and yes there were MASSIVE holes in the walls where they were wrestling and one of them got launched through the wall, and of corse I could always count on there being multiple bowls of cereal on the coffee table with curled milk in them. But there wasn't any drama.  

Let's be honest girls can be mean. We aren't always the easiest to get along with. 

But…

What if we each decided to be the girl that was going to change that in our own world. What if instead of judging each other we encouraged one another? What if instead of talking behind our friends back we prayed for them? What if we dared to believe in their future as much as we believed in our own? I don't know what would happen, but what I am sure that of is that our worlds would come under a significant change. As women we are meant to do life together, not separate. We need each other. 

"If ever there comes a time when the women of the world come together purely and simply for the benefit of humankind, it will be a force such as the world has never seen." ~ Mathew Arnold

  1. I could so relate to this post. I have NEVER had many girlfriends for the same reason. I am more of a tomboy by nature. I don't stress over the fashion situations in life to much. I do like to look like a full fledged fashionable woman when I'm given the chance or a solid reason for doing it. However, on a normal daily routine, I'm in jeans and a tshirt or sweatpants and a tshirt.
