Wow. It’s been four whole months and a lot of things have changed. Not really, but one of the biggest changes is that I got engaged! That’s kind of a big deal, right? And I’ve been planning away ever since.
I’m really excited about this new journey in my life. The road to marriage, two becoming one–starting a life together with the one that I love.
I’m excited about my new role as a wife. I’ve never really thought much about “roles” until the thought of actually becoming a wife became real. I think about all of the things I must do in order to be successful in this position.
It has me thinking about different areas in my life like fulfilling other roles (such as being a great daughter, sister, and friend), gaining a solid career and becoming more spiritually rooted and grounded.
I think it’s interesting how this new role makes me want to “tighten up” aka “get it together.” That’s something I’ve always wanted, but I think now more than ever, I’m striving really hard to get all of my ducks in a row.
I know some people take marriage lightly, some think it’s simply a formality, while others have nothing good to say about it at all, but I think it’s an honor that God sees fit for me to be someone’s wife at this time. I don’t know, maybe my thinking on the subject is a little too deep, maybe it isn’t. It’s amazing some of the things that catch your attention and really make you want to change your ways and become a better person.
