Happy Galentine’s Day! Galentine’s Day is celebrated on February 13th as the day of women celebrating their friendships. It’s the perfect day to reflect on the value of our girlfriends!
The dictionary definition of a girlfriend is “a female friend who gives assistance; a supporter, a frequent and favorite companion.” However, girlfriends are so much more than that definition. They are business partners, neighbors, best friends, etc.
A good girlfriend is someone who is there to support you when you have something to celebrate, something to work on or something to cry about. She is there when you need the best medicine—laughter! She is there for late night chats about your day or to voice your thoughts and ideas that have been running in your head and desperately need to be said. Sometimes that chat is done via text or a phone call, or our favorite way, Marco Polo video texting. We get to see each other face-to-face, the smiles that just happen or sometimes the tears in our eyes as we share our hopes, dreams, and heartaches that we are experiencing.
The benefits of having a good girlfriend are beyond measure. That person always wants what is best for you and is there to share love and support—even in your business! She is there every step of the way. She knows how to give you that gentle push when you feel like you just cannot do anymore or to let you know how great of a job you’ve done and how proud she is.
A good girlfriend doesn’t let you go on stage at Reliv Live with sunglasses on your head or your sleeve half-rolled up. She is always looking out for your best interest. She is your biggest supporter outside of family!
The bottom line is that outside of family, every gal needs a good girlfriend to have her back, to support her, to laugh with, to push, to love, to correct, to cry with, to celebrate with and do life with. There’s just nothing else like having the support of your best friend as you create goals for yourself in your life and your business. We cannot imagine and would never want to imagine a life without having a good girlfriend or even a group of them to support us on our journey!
Know that it is okay to not have a good girlfriend yet. You can always find friendship in someone new! Here are some of the ways we find new friends and build relationships:
- Join a workout group, a book club, or some other activity of interest. Just Google “Workout Group in [your city]” or “Book club in [your city]” and tons of results will show up. If not, organize your own!
- Invite an old friend to a happy hour or coffee.
- Say “yes” to invitations to dinner parties or activities.
- Host a brunch, movie night or game night.
- Attend a Reliv Girlfriends’ Getaway! Stay tuned to reliv.com for the next event announcement.
We had a blast at the Girlfriends’ Getaway because of all these reasons above and more. Finding a good girlfriend is a treasure and these events celebrate that and teach you how to do business with your girlfriends! We cannot wait to see what Reliv has planned for Girlfriends’ Getaways in 2019.
