They say that firsts are best because they are beginnings, and the beauty of firsts is that it leads to a thousand others. It’s true. First breath, first smile, first snow, first love. From destiny, yours forever, impossible to forget.
Today, is a very special first for me!! One year ago, I got married!!! 365 days! I’m still trying to wrap my head around how we completely maxed out each and every day of the past married year. The bigger part of it was great – there was always enough to be thankful for and that’s wonderful. But in between the all of the great, there were nasty days. Making a new city my home, missing the adrenaline rush of the job I absolutely love, the people, man those days felt too quiet to be true! Let’s not start with morning sickness – I was a digestive volcano and emotional tornado. Messy! Of course there were days when we couldn’t see eye to eye, and other ones that I felt like fish out of water, frustrated with all the change. Those were ugly.
Here’s the thing. The beauty in all of that was facing each and every one of those amidst unrestrained patience, grace & love. Then refocusing on giving that free flow for a lifetime! To myself & to all around me. The recipe to embracing & truly belonging in return.
Thank you Year One – the year of belonging. Thrilled that this is just the beginning!!!
