I sometimes want to get under my covers and sleep for a week or so.
That’s normal right?
I saw this quote on Pinterest, since I spend about 100% of my time there right now, and it hit me pretty hard. I’ve been getting myself down a lot lately and being negative about something that’s supposed to be the happiest time of my life. Wedding planning is stressful y’all. And I haven’t even gotten to the hard stuff like guests list and things yet, so idk yet what I’m gonna do.
It’s been really eye opening to me in the past few weeks about what really goes into making a wedding and what really goes into a relationship. Not just with your significant other, but with your overbearing and up tight mother, a maid of honor who is sometimes a no show and not always reliable, friends who want to run the show for you, and your relationship with God.
I’m also a people pleaser, which makes everything about a billion times harder. Making decisions doesn’t come easy when you’re always worried about what someone else might think.
But today while I was just mindlessly scrolling, I saw this and it made me stop and think. And I keep thinking about it hours later. Someone else is out there praying their hearts out for something that I have. Someone out there is praying to find the love that I’ve found and have a wedding like I’m about to. But someone else is praying to find the money to go to college, or that they can keep their house, someone is praying that they could even know what it was like to live in a house. All of these wonderful things that have just been handed to me, or that I was born with, are the only things someone else in the world wants.
It made me want to call my mom and tell her I love her and to thank her for always supporting me. I wanted to call Thomas and tell him I love him and that he deserves a medal for dealing with me sometimes. But it also made me want to stop and thank God for every single person and every single thing in my entire life.
Today I learned something from Pinterest that wasn’t a wedding idea or a craft, who wouldda thought?
If you don’t reblog this you go to Tumblr hell.
