Every event is usually able to be summed up in a few of words. Because Women Love Brunch: Brunch and Bubbly could definitely be described using celebration, elevation, and sisterhood. There is nothing more amazing and special that having a space where women can genuinely connect with one another. Imagined a brunch of 50+ women, you don’t know many or in some cases anyone, but you don’t meet a stranger! That’s the case for a lot of the women that attend their first of many Because Women Love Brunch experiences.
Brunch & Bubbly focused on creating authentic connections, learning from one another, and celebrating ourselves as well as the women around us.
Major Key to attending a Because Women Love Brunch: You get out of every event exactly what you put into it. You cannot go to an event in hopes of meeting new people, but not open yourself up to build those relationships. You have to be open and genuine in your approach and conversations.
“True beauty will radiate regardless. It’s not your duty to remove the blinders of those who choose not to see you. Light illuminates light”
What we experienced at Brunch & Bubbly
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. Last month Because Women Love Brunch celebrated it’s 1 year anniversary. And I have so much gratitude and love for the women who continuously support the idea of celebrating average women doing extraordinary things in their lives. These women are the reason why our community is so amazing! Together we have welcomed over 1,900 women into our community, held 12 events in our 3 different chapter cities New York, San Francisco, and right here where it all started Dallas! I could not have done any of this with their love and support.
Don’t make it about what you can gain, but rather what you can give. A true relationship is about give and take; in order to create and cultivate lasting friendships. Ask yourself how you can benefit the people around you. How can you love them, celebrate and encourage them? You can initiate conversation though a simple text or a hang-out on the weekend. Some people may find this to be odd, but you don’t have to be BFFs with someone in order to hang out! Friendships aren’t built overnight, they come from having shared experiences over time. And most of all choose a squad of women that you share a mutual level of respect and admiration for.
“I am not in competition with with my sisters. There is enough space for all of us to win. Honestly, I’ve found that my come up is actually better when there’s more of us involved.”
