Female friendships/ galentines day

If You Think You Don’t Have Love This Valentine’s Day…


Think again.

We celebrate love on this day to honour a saint who risked his life to help couples in love be together. He paid the ultimate price but to him, love was worth it.

Today we celebrate love. For him.

And let me tell you something my single friends, there is NO love more important than the love you have for yourself. It is the only relationship YOU WILL BE IN FOR A LIFETIME.

Make it count. 

Furthermore, if romance is your goal, look around you at your friendships. 

Women answer the call day or night to a friend in need, dry their tears, listen to the same story over and over again to heal broken hearts.

That is romance.

One day, you will be sitting somewhere with your partner reading a card they wrote to you,or perhaps you will be cross because they forgot or didn’t care…

But today, you have a lot to celebrate.

You my friend, are a warrior woman facing the world like a boss. That is to be celebrated.

And if you are lucky enough to have some warrior women alongside you for the ride, celebrate them too.

We are all in this together and our fierce female friendships are a beauty to behold. In fact, I would go as far as to say that no one will love you quite the way your warrior women do.

Show them some love today and whilst you’re at it, show yourself too.
