I attended a meeting this evening with a group of women who have been friends for over 20 years (almost as long as I am old). As an outsider, it was so interesting to see that the concept and interaction of “girlfriends” is the same regardless of age. These women gossiped in the same manner, talked about “fine” dudes the same way we did and essentially had the young, “sex in the city” flair that me and my 20-something year old friends have that we think is unique to us.
It’s funny because I truly believe that 30 is the new 20. These women (of which are our mothers) wear the same clothes as us, hang at the same spots as us, and have our “homeboy’s” looking at them like they’re just as fly as us. All I can say is that I am happy with this shift. I am happy to see women embrace their age with grace, elegance, yet still have a sense of sexiness and feminity. I also LOVE that women are taking care of themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. Looking at them makes me not worry about getting older.
This concept was kind of why I created this blog. I have been inspired by so many of these diva-like women who can balance successful careers, family, travels, fitness/healthy lifestyles, etc. that I thought I should share the wealth.
Once again, it feels so good to kick back and kick it with your girlfriends.
