The title of the blog post says it all, sometimes you just need a little bit of inspiration to get you through the day, and with the weather being as gloomy it has been these past few days I think it is only fitting that we lean on an a very beautiful inspirational quote that I stumbled upon. And in a way, it’s more like a bit of advice. I don’t know exactly who said it, but I do know that I’m very grateful that they did. Because it is the sort of advice that can apply to everyone and seems very fitting since The Glam Squad specializes in weddings.

“The best advice I’ve ever gotten 

was said that I shouldn’t be in a relationship

with anyone whom I wouldn’t marry,

for it’s a waste of time and takes you off the market.

So don’t worry about relationships.

Build friendships, and one day maybe 

you’ll suddenly meet your soul mate,

or you will realize you want to spend the rest of your 

life with your best friend.

Your young life shouldn’t be spent 

trying to fall in love or even having 

to worry about a partner.

Your life right now should be filled 

with spending time on finding yourself 

and building friendships.”

Although it is an extremely long one, it is an extremely important piece of advice to follow. One of my favorite things is when I hear one of the brides that I’m working with tell me that they are marrying their best friend. And I think every relationship that you enter in with a significant other should be with a best friend. A best friend is someone that you share your secrets with, your wants, your desires, your fears. And when you marry that person it is the best feeling in the world.

There is a difference in the brides that I use that phrase, the “I’m marrying my best friend,” and the ones that don’t utter those words. For some reason that bond of friendship makes all the difference and I think in many ways it sets them up for a marriage filled with love, passion, and an understanding unlike any other. And that’s why I wanted to share this advice with all of you.

It doesn’t matter if you are single, or if you are already married, because this advice applies people of all sorts. If you are single that’s ok, the people you are meeting are helping shape you into the type of person you need to be in order to meet your special someone (and that person that you consider to be your best friend might just be that someone you’ve been waiting for). And even if you are married and can’t forever reason don’t feel like your significant other is your best friend, it’s never too late. Talk them about their dreams, and their fears, find out which smiles they use in certain situations. It’s never too late to deepen the love that is already residing inside of your hearts.
