My sister, sisters-in-law and I, created this special girlfriends club to express what we mean to each other. Do you have a group of related girlfriends who mean the world to you? Then consider forming a girlfriends club of your own. Make up a jazzy name for your group and then write a few guidelines that your club stands for. Here are some thoughts and a few questions to get you started on organizing your own girlfriends club.
Girlfriends Club rule #1: Know and value your roots!
In my girlfriends club, we each know where we came from and we are aware of the value of our shared family history. My great-grandparents, grandparents, and parents were farmers in the Midwest. Being in nature and working hard is part of my familial history. Even though I don’t live in the Midwest now, I understand how my family history influences who I am today. I also know that I am not limited by my past; I live my life integrating all of who I was and who I become each day.
What are your familial roots?
Are you aware of how do your values influence your life?
Girlfriends Club rule #2: Create and become aware your special guidelines; ours are “veto powers.”
So many times in life people want us to do things, things that we really don’t want to do. It takes strength and courage to say no and not go along with the status quo. Our power ultimately begins and ends with us, not with someone else.
What are your special powers? What about your girlfriends?
How do you each use your powers?
Girlfriends Club rule #3: Honor your uniqueness.
Consider selecting an object to represent the uniqueness for your girlfriends club. We have tiaras to remind us that we are the royalty of our lives. The newest member of our club, our niece received a tiara on the day of her birth too! After all, if we don’t treat ourselves like a queen who will?
How are you unique?
