If there’s one thing some of my single friends misunderstand about long term relationships or marriage, is that you don’t settle down when you get marry or committ to someone long term. It’s quite the opposite.
Your life is far from settled, since your journey is just begun. Being committed to someone for life, really gives you the freedom to dive into the things you are passionate about. The nice thing about marriage is that you have someone to catch you if you fall.
Since being married, I’ve push myself further towards my passions and I can do that because there’s someone next to me, pushing me to try harder, to go out of my comfort zone. Though I’ve been married for less than 6 months, I can’t imagine that I will someday be a shell of my former self. If the early stages are a indication, I’ll continue to chugg along, pushing myself to reach higher and further, for the things I am passionate about. Like any marriage, there will always be ups and downs. That is also what I mean about no such thing as “settled down”, you’ll have highs and lows. During the low periods, you wont’ feel “settled” at all.
Okay, Okay…back to what this blog is all about. I found a gorgeous silk scarf the last time I was at Goodwill. I can see myself strolling the cobble stone streets in europe this summer with this scarf wrapped around my neck.
