Our Galentine's Ode to Our "Sisters"

Our Galentine's Ode to Our "Sisters"

Today is Galentine's day and we would be remiss if we didn't give a little shout out to the women that have created our community, our support system, our lifelines... really, our family. If you spend any time in our Facebook group, The Salty Lifestyle, you know that we're trying to create a place that's real, raw, honest but fun, silly and a bit salty. We are sisters, we have another sister but we consider all the women in our life our sisters. We don't have to be related by blood to share our lives with one another, to provide that support that we all know we need.

We posted a little piece in the group last night from LoveWhatMatters.com about inviting one another into our messes. It really resonated with so many people, because we all yearn to have real relationships, where we can be ourselves, love hard and cry hard too. We are building that community right here at SaltyGirl Beauty and it's truly so meaningful. If you're prepared to get mushy, so are we! Join our sisterhood, feel free to be yourself. We'll share our good times and messy times with you, all of the time. Happy Galentine's Day!

“Hey, Sister. Do me a favor, would you?
Invite me in to your mess.
Please.
Pretty please.
I mean, don’t get me wrong,
I wanna be invited into your beauty, too.
The nice moments; the soft moments.
The hallmark commercial, kinda stuff.
Please, invite me into that, too.
But don’t leave me outta your mess.
Don’t feel for one moment that it may overwhelm me. Don’t think for one second that you’ll be judged by me.
Because can I let you in on a little secret?
You allowing me into your mess,
Allows me to be more comfortable sharing mine.
So give me permission to see your heartache; your heartbreak. Allow me to see the days when you don’t feel like putting your feet to the floor, but you put them to the floor anyway. Invite me in to be witness to the days when you don’t want to show up for others, but you show up anyway.
Let me see your tears, your anger, your sadness. Allow me to stand there during your frustrations, your worries, your sleepless nights.
Because, Sister,
I’m going to need you there through mine.
And if there’s one thing I’ve learned –
It’s that a sisterhood cannot be built on the good times alone.
Invite me into your mess,
And I’ll invite you into mine.
The good times? The fun times?
Sure, we’ll have them, too.
But the messy times?
That’s where the real stuff is made.”
