A Beautiful Mind..

Life has such a funny way of creeping up on you..

I work 5 days a week from 8:15am until 5:00pm. In that time I am thinking, breathing, smiling, eating and drinking all things work. I don’t even get the time to have a thought to myself and I love that. I love my job. It’s rewarding, challenging and (at times) frustrating.. All at the same time.

Then I get home. To an empty house. Just me.. And all the thoughts I didn’t think throughout the day come crashing in at break-neck speed – all fighting as if the one just acknowledged has more importance than the one before.

Life has such a funny way of creeping up on you..

Another set of my friends got engaged yesterday! I won’t say their names or put a picture up because I’m not sure that everyone has been told yet.. But a few days ago another set of friends got engaged just after New Year’s Day. A third set of friends got engaged last year and are getting married in August of this year and a fourth set engaged last October.. But are yet to set a date.

My mind thrives on the intensity of life in every order of its existence.. Beautiful in each form it becomes.

I love the fact that all of this is going on around me.. And at the same time it causes me to pause and realise that life is amazing.. Love.. Immeasurable – When all else fails.. Is.. Perfect.

All these engagements are making me realise that I’m becoming a grown up.. Existing in a world where it’s okay to love.. And to love hard.
That, head-over-heels-achey-in-your-heart-wanting-to-be-close-to-them-not-wanting-to-live-another-moment-without-them-unnaturally-natural-crazy, kind of love.

Life is what happens when we’re making plans..

Congratulations to all my amazing friends that have just started this new chapter in their lives!

I wish you all the best and I can’t wait for what lies ahead.

#First comes love.. Then comes marriage.. šŸ˜›

  1. Indeed, it’s funny how things come together in life. I remember when all my friends started getting engaged. Thankfully, I was one of the first! But then they started having kids and I felt left behind – until I eventually had two of my own! Now, divorces are heading and then funerals – I’m very, very happy to be left out of the former and put off the latter for a long time no matter WHEN my friends start doing them! :-/
