Celebrate your life Oprah quote“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”   Oprah Winfrey

Take a deep breath. Hold it. Now, close your eyes and make a wish. Then help me blow out the candles.

There are eight on the cake this year. One for each awesome, amazing and awe-inspiring year that we’ve been able to share our inspiration, strength, and female friendship through Girlfriendology.

Since our word for the year is Happiness, this is an especially happy birthday, and girlfriends, we’ve got a lot to celebrate. So I’m going to take a cue from Oprah, and do a little praise and celebration for all of us to look at what we’ve accomplished in the past year.

In the past 12 months our community has grown, and there are now over 60,000 of us sharing what’s important to us all about female friendship. That’s more than a community – that’s a good sized town population! We’ve learned new ways to show our gratitude to each other, new ways to strengthen our friendships and to realize how good a person each of us can be.

Throughout the year, we’ve heard from some amazing women, from all walks of life and in all stages of their journeys, great stories and life-lessons that we can relate to our own situations, our careers, our families and our friendships.

happiness is the only goodWhen Girlfriendology was established eight year ago, the seed was planted because of my personal experience in dealing with some very close friends who were going through some pretty significant life changes. In each case there were elements of closeness and friendship that helped us all to get through it. My hope was that that kind of support and the process of learning those life lessons could be expanded exponentially.

Girlfriendology was born. The intent has always been to inspire women like you to celebrate girlfriends’ lives and successes and to appreciate quiet moments and big events that are so much better when they’re shared.

So on this eighth birthday, I want you all to join me in sharing the praise and celebration for the success that Girlfriendology has become. We are a growing, active and engaged community of women, helping and supporting each other through whatever life throws at us.

It’s time to celebrate girlfriends, as we look ahead to another year of great stories, fabulous friendships and inspiring ideas that we can all share. And many happy returns

Oh by the way, when you blew out the birthday candles, what did you wish for? Wait! Wait! Don’t tell me. You keep that wish a secret and it just might come true.

Get HAPPY girlfriends. This is going to be a great, HAPPY year. Join us on our journey toward HAPPINESS!
