Friendship Struggles


I know you've heard it all over social media snd the web, find your tribe, build your tribe, etc...etc... For some this seems so easy and effortless and others, well it's not. You hide behind your devices, and most of the time life seems emotionally awkward and a feeling of displacement. Just know you're not alone and definitely not the only one that struggles with connecting with people. It's so easy to say build a tribe however today, people seem less connected than ever.  I understand. Please know you're not alone in this struggle, please don't allow yourself to be  bothered by what ups see online, most of it isn't real. Take time to love the ones you're with and make an effort to make real connections with real people you can engage with real conversation, love and laughter.

Your Girlfriend Next Door If you worked for Oprah Winfrey


Pancake Talk Tuesday with Your Girlfriend Next Door™ Watch video above...

What if you had an opportunity to work or audition for Oprah Winfrey daily? Would you try to do your best? Well for me, I asked myself this question. When you admire somewhere like Oprah, and you have a chance display your talent, wouldn't you try to do your best. I would. 

So Let's Talk:
Think Of Me As The Quintessential Girl Next Door With Deep Southern Roots, Charm And Hospitality.  A Native Of Georgia And A Wife Of A Carolinian; My Heart Will Always Have A Lady Like Appeal And A Soul Of Grace.  I Have Always Had A Passion To Help Others And Assist Them In Bringing Their Visions And Goals To Reality.  What I Know For Sure Is, This Is What I’m Designed To Do.  The Most Comforting Feeling Is When I Have The Opportunity To Bring Out The Inner Desires For Someone And Allow Them To Share It With The World.  This Is My Life Brand – I’ve Been Branded To Help Others Realize Their Passions, Desires And Goals.

Tip: It is very important to be authentic and bring your individual talent to anything you do.
