In the past few years, I have been cultivating, nourishing, seeking women friendships. It has become obvious to me just how important it is to surround ourselves with kindred spirits with whom to share our happiness, sadness, success, failure, hopes and dreams.
Some of them I’ve known all my life, some since Grade 2, some from high school, a few through College or during university classes or even at the gym, and some have found their way into my life over the internet, through blogging. I never realised just how important each and everyone of them would become to me. What is wonderful is some are my age, some younger and some older. There is no age barrier in friendship. Each one has something to bring to the table, so to speak.
As fate would have it, as I was faffing away on Facebook, wasting time instead of being productive as I’m on standby for house issues, I landed on this Ted talk. How can we not love Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda?
