What It Means To Be A Big

In the middle of my Little mess, I forget how Big I'm blessed

1580

Everyone loves going through the process of becoming a big.

When I was first paired with my big, we were close, but not close enough to where we both wanted to be. Ever since the beginning of my time in our sorority, we have built our relationship to where we wanted and more. I can say she has been the best big ever to me. And because of her, I knew I was ready to take littles. I now have two littles that I love very much. They push me to be the best big I can possibly be to them.

Knowing how to be a big isn’t something that comes naturally, but knowing when you are ready to be a big is a feeling you instantly sense.

Being a big means always being there for your little…

Guide your little when she needs help or when things go wrong. Support her in everything she does and hopes to do. Be patient with your little. Showing your little that you will always be there for her will tighten the connection you two already share. She will know you will always be there when she needs you.

Being a big means being a good role model…

Know when to be your little’s best friend and when to be her mentor. Showing your little the best person you can be will push her to be the best person she wants to be. Remind her to appreciate the little things in life. Be the best big you can be for your little so she will know she can be the best big for her future little.

Being a big means teaching your little what it means to be a proud member of your organization…

Push (don’t be too pushy) your little to get involved and participate with your organization, so she will grow to love it more and more. Show your little the importance of ritual. Guide your little through her journey through college and being in the organization.

Being a big means being able to pick things up where they were when you haven’t seen your little in a long time…

No matter the distance or the time that has passed, you will always have that unbreakable bond with your little. Being able to talk to her as if you just saw her yesterday is the best feeling in the world.

Being a big means have fun with your little…

Be spontaneous with her. Create moments you two will always remember. Go out with her. Take lots of pictures. Do things together that you know you will both enjoy.

Being a big means showing your little how much you love her…

Listen to what your little has to say. Spoil her. Do anything to show your little you care. Tell her how special she is to you. Always love her. Be thankful for your little and all she does for you. Be the big sister she was looking for when she made the decision to join your organization.

There are only so many things you can say about being a big to someone who has never been a big. It is hard to express what it means to be a big in words because it is only something you can feel.

You can only hope that you have been the best big possible to your little and to hope that you have done as much as you could for her to the point where she will be the best big to her little.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
