And when I say struggle, I say this because I never quite expected to feel the way I feel once M proposed.
I knew he would.
I knew we would.
And I knew it is what we both wanted.
But what I didn’t know, was how I would react. How I would feel. Besides that elated, happy, can’t-wipe-the-smile-off-my-face feeling, I feel so ready. So so ready. To become a family with M. To be our own unit. To continue our story, wherever it leads us.
And part of that ready feeling? Jump, skipping ahead to the next. To IT.
Yet there is this ‘gap’ between now and marriage that I don’t want to look past. The here and now. The current season of our lives.
As we enjoy the bliss that we are in, embrace the love that continues to grow, and stop and practice gratitude for finding each other at exactly the right time in our lives (thanks for the unintentional nudge Lindsay!), there is so much in-between to enjoy. Individually, and together.
So this is my reminder. To me. To him. To anyone reading.
Embrace the current season of your life. Even if there is something exciting around the corner. And conversely, even if there isn’t. We only get one chance at this life, let’s do it right.
(and thank you THANK YOU for all of your comments, tweets, texts and blog shout-outs. I have not stopping beaming and being blown away by all the love, happiness and support for us!!).
