We don't live for our careers. It is a large part of our life and should gain our full attention and effort, but I can no longer base HOW I am doing in life FROM my career. There is much more to it than that.
My thing to ask you as you prepare for this big day is "what do YOU care about?" Forget about what your mom cares for or those traditions. Today, we celebrate the love you and your husband have!
I have been chasing after things that were meant for me in a previous season, and not meant to follow me into my new season. I am preparing so far into the future that I am rushing the present. I can't even enjoy my smallest wins today because I'm stuck in the thought pattern of "I'm not where I thought I would be."
