Earlier this week, I enjoyed a girls night out with my good friend Faith. It had been a few months since we last got together, so there was plenty for us to catch up on.
While enjoying a delicious dinner at Hudson Place in Midtown East, we talked about relationship turning point, our exciting new jobs and balancing work with time for fun and romance.
I couldn’t help thinking how time has just raced by since I started at the Westin New York Grand Central a month ago. It’s been an exhilarating start to an exciting new chapter of my career. With that, though, I’ve come to realize how easy it is to use work as an excuse for not prioritizing effectively.
Prior to joining the Westin in September, I allowed being unhappy job-wise to be justification for a hiatus from dating. The thing is, it’s all too easy to continue that I’m-too-busy mindset and not carve out any time to meet new people. Dating fatigue seems to grow exponentially when you’re out of the game for awhile.
Which is one of many reasons why it’s so important to have girlfriends like Faith. Faith makes every night out an event and loves to play matchmaker. She suggested we make girls nights a bi-weekly occurrence. Sign me up.
