Social media is a funny thing.
It’s such a strong influential force. It’s got this freaky way of making you feel like you’re not good enough sometimes. That you’re lacking. That you’re still so far down have yet a while to go. Take it from an influencer herself. #WhoCanRelate?
But then there’s this stronger force that is lusher than our new age hypnotizer. Strength times ten, it makes you forget to check your phone. It makes you realize that everything is worthwhile. That everything is worth it. The hard work. The times when you’re too tired. The times where you’re a bit sad. In the end it’s all worth it because it really makes you happy. Sisterhood.
If you think one day you can’t fly, they tell you to run and run with you. If you can’t, they’re there to tell you to walk and walk with you. Never asking you to change, only forever pushing you to become your best self, together. Never judging you to feel bad about feeling, but instead always nurturing each others opinions.
This is to the women who feel alone. Who feel sucked into the strong force of social media. This is to you, (yes you), who are reading this right now. Girl, you’re enough. You’re beautiful. God, you worked so hard to be sitting where you are now to think otherwise. You’ve come this far, to not only come this far. Real life is stronger and your bonds with the people whom you surround yourself with are even stronger.
To my girls who’s had my back through the most challenging parts of my life. To my girls who ate cereal with me on those times when we couldn’t afford a real meal for weeks. To my girls who stayed by me through the transitions my life was going through. Thank you for never leaving. Thank you for never changing. Thank you for the constant push. Thank you for the forever support. Because of you all, I am constantly strong and unbreakable and confident. But together, we are a force even more than that.
The video sums up the ratch-lorette weekend. But whatever happened in between stays behind the lense. However, to the bride-to-be’s and MOHs reading this, you get first hand advice from my very own Maid of Honor and sister down below:
Tip #2: Find inspiration to create ideas.
It’s easy to plan, but if you want to make things more special you have to find ways to make things more creative. The more creative, the better. I’m a Pinterest junkie, so I highly suggest creating a board and pinning all the ideas you come across. It’s something as little as making a scrapbook with all the photos from that weekend, or finding the right decorations to suite her personality that make the biggest impact on making the weekend more memorable for the bride.
