It was just your ordinary day in the cafe. My friend leaned across the table and told me her life and been revolutionized. “I’m not wearing a bra” were the next five words from her mouth.
She went on to explain that she was having a direct-sales party with a company that sells women’s shapewear…so that you can ban the bra. For real. I was hooked and quickly jotted the date of the party down on my calendar.
Of course, I’m not one to shy away from a direct sales party, and that’s because I do wear a bra…
You see, I have this really awesome support system, my “bra”. The ladies (and men) in my life who support me and my endeavors are just that. And when I’m not wearing a bra? I’m lost.
Friends, I know there are many of us who say, do, and even (gasp) sell things that we aren’t 100% sold on. But, because you are supportive of your friends, you should do what you can to help them out.
Like the other night…I was struggling with the reality of being a twin mom and I had several dear friends (different parts of my bra, if you will) reach out and tell me I am doing a good job. THAT is what friendship is about.
Or there was that time that I lost all that weight and a lot of you were like “go girl”, “rock your body”. Again, supporting me in what I do.
Then there are those times when I can count on a handful of people to be there for me versus hundreds coming out of the woodwork and chiming in. Even if they could care less about what the party, blog, complaint is about. They’re there because that’s what my bra does. It supports me.
This week, I became super thankful for my support system, and I hope they know how much they mean. For that, I thank you. It’s rare that I feel like “I’m not wearing a bra” and that’s good stuff, friends.
Agood bra is there for you in good times and in bad. Whether you want to be wearing it or not. Are you feeling supported? If not, maybe it’s time to wash that bra. Re-think your relationships or define ones that you can be better at. Is there someone out there who is your support system? What have you done for the people in your life that you are their bra?
…if I got ‘ya to read this far on this post, do me a favor and share your favorite ‘lil Burghers blog post with your support system (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest) and be sure to tag me. My bra could use a little padding from time to time. *wink*
