Weekend Musings: Golden Girl FriendsFebruary 23, 2019

Remember The Golden Girls, darlings? I know you do! All week, I’ve been thinking about friendship and how much it matters to us in our “golden” years. The Golden Girls were the type of girlfriends we all love to have: Honest, loyal and… hilarious.
Did you have a favorite?
I admired certain characteristics in each of The Golden Girls. Rose’s optimism was inspiring, Dorothy’s level-headedness and sound advice, Blanche’s confidence, and, of course, Sophia’s humor and brutal honesty.
I discovered this fun article on a website called The Frisky that details what your favorite Golden Girl says about you.

And speaking of Golden…
The Oscars are almost upon us and as many of you know, Shelly and I are avid movie watchers. Do you have an opinion on which actors, actresses or films will win the coveted golden statue?
As I mentioned last week, I adore the website, Peneflix.com and I use it all the time before Shelly and I choose which films to watch. I give the site 5 stars! Peneflix shares excellent reviews of films, including the categories of Foreign, Hollywood, and Bollywood. I shared Peneflix’ Oscar picks in one of last week’s most-read stories on HoneyGood.com. Do you agree with their picks? Tomorrow we will find out who wins and who gets to say, “It was an honor just to be nominated.” 🙂

And speaking of Girls…
I am beyond happily married to my best friend and ultimate concierge, Sheldon Good. And yet, my life would be incomplete without my girlfriends. Why are girlfriends such an essential ingredient in the recipe to a happy, relevant, and vibrant life after 50?
I have found that if tell Shelly my problems, he will try to solve them. Because he cares so deeply. But, often, all I need is a shoulder to cry on rather than a big arm to fix things for me. This is where some of my best girlfriends fill a void in my life that perhaps my ultimate concierge is not naturally designed to fill. Do you know what I mean, darlings?
If I have something I want to talk through, I can do so with my girlfriends. They won’t solve problems for me unless I ask them to, and they’re more than happy to delve into the details of any situation… even repeatedly if I so desire. Honestly, the best way to solve a problem is often just to talk through it and, as I like to say, live into the answer.
This is the reason I am so passionate about MOXIE! our new private network for women over 50 to connect and forge long-lasting friendships. Women need women. Of this, I am certain.
