The Influence of a Good Friend

It's amazing the affect a good friend can have on you.

I met someone recently who has become a very good friend. She telephoned me to say that she had been successful at a job interview she had attended today.

We spend the next hour or so going over the interview and squealing with joy at her success.

I really appreciated it when she thanked me for my help - I didn't think that I had done anything she would not have done for me. All I did was to encourage her to do something she was already going to do. But for her my encouragement was much more.
It made me think about the way we can influence each other, either for good or not so good.

By just being a good friend Yvonne was encouraged to reach for her ideal job.
Through her success I have an opportunity for more work, but this was not what I'd had in mind when I was encouraging her to for go the job she wanted and to make some positive changes in her life.
Isn't live just great?!

One of the things I like most about girl friends is how girlie we can be. I mean the squealing, hugging and jumping around when we are excited and happy for each other.
There is nothing like a good girlie night in - a few chocolates, a little wine and some wonderful catch up time with no rushing home. Not to mention the make up and doing each others hair and nails; looking at pictures; talking about boy friends and husbands.
This is sounding great - I can feel another one coming on as I speak!
Girlie nights and good friends are like medicine to the spirit. It's always great way to cheer you up and get you thinking more positively about life.
When was the last time you had a good girlie night in? Plan one for this Friday or Saturday night. With the right friends, it could make you feel like you are a new woman.
