Tales of a Bridesmaid: Edition 8

A wise white rabbit once said, “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date. No time to say hello, goodbye, I’m late, I’m late, I’m late…” If anyone feels the same way I have felt lately, it is that you’re constantly running around in circles trying to get to your destination as you repeatedly glance at your pocket watch (or Blackberry).

Time management is of the essence. A skill that needs to be practiced by all from teens, young professionals, parents and brides. We have already become a society that is fully reliant on technology especially with hectic schedules bursting at the seams. I invited all of my friends to my recent birthday party via Facebook, confirmed through text messages, and worked with my party coordinator via email. Not once was it necessary for me to meet anyone in person until the day of the party. I schedule lunches with my parents on my Blackberry and in order to plan upcoming bachelorette’s and brunches, every girl pulls out her Blackberry, iPhone orDroid to see what date works best.

I am officially on technology and schedulingoverload.

AKA: Life, you’re getting a little too crazy for me!

So if you’re anything like me and you need a break -Call up your friends, clear your calendars of the mundane things you have scheduled and spontaneously take a hike together, squish your toes in thesand at the beach, or walk around a museum for an afternoon. Cut off technological contact, don’t update your 500 friends on Facebook by checking in, no need to tweet about the exhibit. Enjoy each others company because the best thing you can do for yourself when on overload (technological or wedding) is to spend quality time with those who care.

Until next week my friends…
