I am no longer planning weddings
There i said it. I’ve told close friends and family but I’ve done pretty good at keeping it off social media. I knew as soon as I decided in January that it was the right decision. The year before I was a ball of stress. Working constantly, striving to be the best and neglecting my family, my friends and myself. I knew in January that something had to change for my own well being and my families. So after a lot of deliberation, stress and almost depression over the whole subject I decided I was done.
Not to toot my own horn but I am pretty good at planning weddings. I love the beauty of them, the fun and happiness that surrounds them. I made very good money planning them. But at one point you have to look back and say ok my happiness and my family are more important. I feel like I missed a lot these past few years because I was working or I was thinking about work. I want to be there for my family, for my husband, present in their lives and paying attention.
I don’t want to no be a stress ball working until midnight every night.
Walking away was not an easy decision. But I knew as soon as the decision was made it was the right decision. The stress was released as soon as it was decided.
So there. I’ve said it. Made it official.
I really do recommend that if you are in the same position as I am you really take a look at your life and what is making you unhappy. Life is far to short to continue being unhappy, missing out on so many amazing things and never taking the time to stop and smell the roses. Choose happiness or find a way to compromise so you too get to enjoy all that life has to offer.
I’d love to hear how you picked happiness over something else. It’s inspiring.
Have a lovely Monday.
