The value of female friendships

This week one of my good friends arrived back in Sydney after a long sabbatical. We caught up yesterday and it’s like no time has passed at all. It got me thinking about how much I value our friendship and all of my beautiful women friends (you know who you are). There is something magical about catching up with a girlfriend over a cuppa (or a gin) and sharing everything and nothing.

“I have my friends, therefore I am. They make me stronger, they make me smarter, they make me braver, they tap me on the shoulder when I might be in need of course correcting…” – Jane Fonda

In this TED Talk, Lily Tomlin talks about the Harvard Medical School research that found the more women friends you have, the less likely you are to develop health issues as you age. So your friends are warding off illness while they’re making your heart soar.

It’s worth watching the beautiful dynamics between Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda. This interview really does celebrate the joy of what it’s like to have truly beautiful women friends.

How can you celebrate your female friendships today?
