Girls Night Out or was it Girl's Night In?

It started out as a Girls Night Out with my nieces. It ended up with an unplanned sleep over.

As I was loading up the car to go home, I accidentally locked my keys in the car along with the cell phone friend-husband and I share. Friend-husband was kind enough to come rescue me, even though I was already using his keys as mine had (looking innocent) disappeared. His pick-up was just (I mean JUST) tuned up and given a clean bill of health, however it broke down on the freeway, just a few miles from home.

Two hours later, when he hadn't arrived. I sensed that something was wrong. At first I thought maybe he was searching for the missing set of keys, but after two hours I could imagine all sorts of things. Since I had the cell phone, he couldn't call me. In fact he had walked to McDonalds, in icy weather, to call a neighbor who kindly towed him home.

When we reconnected by telephone, we felt grateful that everyone was okay and in a toasty warm place for the night. I could sleep over and call a locksmith in the morning. He could get his pickup checked out the next day. All was well.

Girls Night Out had become Girls Night In.

By the way, my nieces ROCK. We had fun laughing and talking together. We shared ideas and thoughts about self worth. Everyone had something to say and I'm thinking we all went home feeling better about ourselves.

I love Girls Nights Out. They give me an opportunity to teach about self worth and positive messages. We learn from each other. We empower each other.

Today I launched a new blogsite where you can get a weekly dose of self-confidence and where you can learn to love yourself. It's called Your True Reflection.

I hope you'll join me there, and tell all your friends.

Isn't it time we all learned to love ourselves?
