"My girlfriends there through thick and thin. My girlfriends there for anything." Remember that theme song sung by Angie Stone for the TV show "Girlfriends"? I loved that show. I wish they would reboot a show like that , or make a movie don't you? I watched that show all the time after school and I admired that they were always there for each other no matter what. However these days not only do we not hang together as much but we need to stop tagging each other on social media or quick text messages that half us are too distracted to answer and just call up our girlfriends. Remember when you and your closest friends use to talk on the phone for a while about everything? Nowadays our trust factors are super-low, our schedules are packed, and sending a quick emoji in response is much faster . These days there's so much going on in our lives and the lives of everyone around us that we barely talk and keep things to ourselves . A lot of us portray an image that everything is okay even when it's not. Not realizing your friend could shed some light or maybe be able to help you.
The media, magazines, and the internet is always telling us women how we should be , what we should look like, etc but in reality all that matters is that you are healthy, happy, and free. We as women not only are judged by others but we judge ourselves. That has to stop. We really have to love ourselves and each-other.
Everyone thinks being solo is cool, and riding alone is what's new. God didn't put billions of people on this earth for that. Ladies we flip out when guys say wrong things about us but celebrate when we do it. That's backwards. We shouldn't be tearing each other down. We should be building each other up. Yes, we go through things with friends ( I don't think there's any perfect friendship) and sometimes you have to speak on it hunty.
So I created this playlist on Tidal entitled "Call Up My Girlfriends" . It features 60 songs from some very inspirational artist about various topics to inspire and uplift you. Sometimes we have to call up our girlfriends for advice about hair, clothes, work , a guy , chat about what's going on , or just see how they're doing. There's also tracks on here for the things you don't talk to your friends about ( as I said before you don't have to tell them everything). We women are beautiful, valuable, strong, intelligent, talented and so much more. So ladies press play, share this playlist, and don't forget to "Call Up Your Girlfriends".
