The Celebration of Sisterhood — One Moore Thing

I just made the cusp of being able to call myself a baby born in the 1970s.

I entered the world in December of 1979, the decade that I absolutely feel I was destined to be a part of. This wannabe flower child will be turning forty this year. And so will the majority of my core people. The meet you in the depth people. The travel in traffic for you people. The middle of the night, they are there for you people. The ones that answer your bat signal. The ones that hug you a little tighter. The ones that know all of your flaws and love you anyway. The ones that know when a situation calls for cocktails or brunch or a sleepover or all of the above. The ones that relentlessly see your light. The ones that no matter how much time has passed before you meet again, it is as if you only ever blinked.

These are the people that speak to your soul. These are the people you meet in cities you’ve never been. These are the people that you walk with arm in arm in a pack and have considered getting matching jackets more than once. These are the people that will never outgrow or break certain unspoken pacts. The you love him, I’ll love him pact. The you hate him, I’ll help you bury the body pact. The if someone tries to hurt you ever, I will break them pact. Or at a minimum I’ll unfollow them on social media pact. The I would take a bullet (preferably in the leg) for you pact. The sisters before misters pact. The you need me, I’m there pact. The you need to cry, I’ll hold your hand pact. The you need to laugh, I’ve got you forever in this life pact. The I want to see you thrive and shine and own it and I will cheer the loudest in the stands for you pact.

These friendships are fierce and they are priceless. I am beyond lucky to have my tribes in this life. The thing is though that it is not just luck in nourishing and protecting these bonds. It shouldn’t be work either. It is a showing up. It is a commitment. It is texting about things that don’t seem to matter between the things that really do. It is a deep love and connection and being vulnerable and being seen. And it is worth it.

The easy, beautiful, natural, drama free friendships in your world deserve to be celebrated. After you spend time with the people that fuel you, there is an exquisite renewal that happens. You remember how good it feels to laugh and to shed your layers among the people that make you feel safe and held. There is an indescribable peace that surfaces when you are among the people that you don’t have to put on any masks for.

So book the trip. Make the plans. Let this be the year that you renew the pacts. It doesn’t matter if you are celebrating your 40ths or 52nds or celebrating babies being born or job promotions or weddings or divorces. The celebration is in the showing up and having each other in this wild world. And it doesn’t have to be extravagant. The people that love you are just as happy to be gathered around your kitchen island as they are on a beach with you in St. John (okay they might prefer the Virgin Islands to chips and guacamole in your living room but one is much easier in the logistics department). They just want/need to see you and you want/need to see them. They are your soul mates, without explanation or apology. They have you. Life carries on. Parents get older. Children grow up. Romantic relationships can fade. But sisterhood can be the center and the constant.

You only live once but if you live it among the laughter of your girlfriends, once is enough.
