Today’s post is going to be short because we are getting married in 5 short days (YAY!!!) and so I’m saving all my brain juice for focusing on and writing my vows. But, there is an important thing that Drew and I have both come to value in the days leading up to our wedding, which is 100% outdoors, with no Plan B, Friday, Saturday AND Sunday, on top of the fact that this has turned out to be the most UNPREDICTABLE January in the history of weather. EVER. What can we say, we are open to risk and like taking chances! Back to the lesson, which is, the importance and power of visualization!
That image is from my journal a few years back, but you see that photo at the top of our post? That’s us in Islamorada the day we chose our wedding venue. It was a perfect, blue-sky day with a light-cool breeze… EXACTLY the kind of day we had dreamed of for our wedding, and typically the kind of weather Florida January’s are so famed for. But, with all of this crazy weather going on lately, Drew and I started to get a bit concerned, so we decided to paste that photo of our dream day on our mirror so we could look at it and focus on it every morning, believing and giving gratitude for the beautiful weather we would be SO BLESSED with on our wedding weekend.
Now I know our wedding is still a few days away, and we don’t want to count our chickens before they hatch, but you know what? Sometimes it’s ok to believe that every single one of those eggs will produce a perfectly healthy, happy and sunny little chicklet. Don’t let negativity and thoughts of “what if” cloud your Faith. While it’s important to be realistic as well, it’s even more important to take chances and believe in the best possible outcome. No matter what happens, you will walk away from your experience knowing that you did all you could to trust, and whatever is meant to be will be.
One more thing! Drew and I have been filming tiny little clips about our thoughts on marriage/wedding for the 2 weeks prior to our wedding. Here is yesterday’s clip – Enjoy!
