Well, we did it! We are officially married, and it feels awesome. I didn't think that it would actually feel different, but it does.
I get a little sad at each moment in my life when I have a huge life change. I am sad to leave the past life behind. Whenever change happens I worry that I won't take the lessons I learned with me, or the memories with me. However, if history repeats itself (which it always does), then I will be a better person because of the lessons and the memories. I will always have the memories, and I will always have the messages behind the lessons.
I also get anxious to see what the future holds after a huge life change. I want to know now what I am going to have to face, and what I will learn at the next step. I don't really like surprises, and I like to plan for what is ahead. Again, if history repeats itself (which it does), then I will faces those obstacles, surprises, and joys. This time, however, I will faces those obstacles with one more person in my life, John. He keeps me grounded, calms me down when I start to get anxious, and he makes me see the forest instead of the trees.
I believe with John by my side as well as my friends I have made along the way, and my family, I will be able to meet this change, learn new things, and make memories along the way.
