After having a little holiday celebration with one of my very best girlfriends, I realized I forgot something on the list of my last post. And that something is: Girlfriends give you the confidence to shoot for the stars. Aiming to run a marathon by the end of the year though you’ve never moved faster than a trot? Planning to ask your boss for a raise? Starting your own blog? Expanding your business? Publishing a book? If you’re feeling less-than-confident about your dreams for 2011, check in with a girlfriend. My hunch is that she will give you all the courage you need.
