The older I get the more I value the input and support of wise women with experience gleaned from lives both ordinary and extraordinary. Somewhere in childhood I picked up the sense that someday life would be smooth sailing, that I would have everything figured out and I would move through my impressive career and relationships with ease. Not only is that a myth we need to stop telling our daughters (and sons) but it would probably make for a very boring life.
Three years ago I moved to West Sussex. My life’s work, my friends and my family are now all very far away. I miss the female friendships that informed my choices and enhanced my journey, and I sense others might too. Let’s face it, life is better walking with our girlfriends; laughing, crying, sharing, encouraging, just spending time together.
I’ve now spilled over into my 50s. I have stories to tell but also lessons to learn. This group holds space for you and your stories too, whatever your age, wherever your journey has led.
Please note, this group is about friendship, not romance. Anyone who identifies as female is welcome.
