Do you have to go with someone you know in order to have fun at a wedding?
I don’t think so!
Actually, I think it’s a lot more fun to go with someone you don’t know.
I’ve been to many many many weddings so I do have a little bit of an “in” on this story.
It’s doesn’t matter if you go with the opposite sex, same sex, or a kid. Weddings with strangers is probably one of the most exciting things you can do in your year, or for some people LIFE!
I use to be one of those persons who was so shy and didn’t like being around people. I don’t know if it’s social anxiety or what but I’ve some how grown out of it.
I now think people are pretty stinkin amazing. And..for the most part, people are really good….(some just make really stupid mistakes).
If you were to sit back and look at people from a more worldly and somewhat detached perspective, you would find we are all more alike than not and you’d be appalled at how badly our self esteem….as humans…is.
People, for some reason, don’t realize their own power in controlling the outcome of their life and they get caught up in what everyone else thinks and does…and really..life isn’t about that at all. Life doesn’t care what the crap you are wearing or who you are dancing with at the ball (Cinderella!).
If you want to be Cinderella…THEN BE HER!…(but be your own unique version of course).
The more you worry about what everyone else will think of you, the more you are feeding into your own lack of self worth.
Your BODY is just a house. It’s just holding you. The only thing that holds you back IS YOU. Your mind. You have to train your brain to believe in your own awesomeness.
So what does all this have to do with going to a wedding with a stranger?
They are going just like you, into an unknown.
Approach it as an experience where it is your duty to help them have a good time and you’ll find that you both shine like super stars.
So you want to show up in a limo? Then do it! Does there have to be an occasion? Heck! I might just get a limo to take me to the grocery store while my own car is in the auto body shop!
Don’t be afraid to be YOU. Don’t be afraid to shine. Don’t be afraid of strangers and what they might think of you just because they wear fancier clothes.
DON’T BE YOUR OWN ENEMY (because too many people are already doing that)
Break the mold of boredom and drab. Be Amazing. Show others you can show up with a complete stranger and have a fantastic time because you are SPECIAL and you are UNIQUE and gosh darn it….somebody likes you (and the somebody should be you!)
