I saw this quote the other day and it hit me like a punch in the gut. In a good way, of course: Be easy.
It couldn’t have come at a better time for me. It feels like life is speeding up as I approach my wedding day and I really want to slow it down a little to make sure I’m enjoying it; I’ll never get this special time back. I really want to enjoy the anticipation about the wedding, being married + becoming a ‘we’.
I’ve waited a long time to meet the right person to settle down with; And I’d be lying if I said that I was never on the edge of giving up, because I was, many times. I began to think that maybe it was for other people and I would find happiness in other ways. But something always pulled me back to believing that this could happen for me, too. I believe that we all deserve that ever-binding, true and loyal love to take root in our lives. Even when we’re not feeling so loveable or that it’s too late. It’s never too late.
So as I dance through these next few weeks, I want to remember that yes, there are changes everywhere and overwhelm is always breathing down my neck. But there’s also the excitement of becoming more myself, through the journey of being with someone else in a more permanent way. I feel like in becoming a we, I have really begun to nail down what it means to be me.
