Today, on my day off, I decided to take some time and browse a few save-the-date magnets on the internet since we plan to mail ours out before Christmas.
For some reason that I can’t quite understand now, setting this time aside today was causing me anxiety!
Until today I’ve been feeling anxious and stressed out all week. I’ve just felt like there’s so much on my plate to get done this month, and not enough time to do it all and rest/relax enough.
It’s blowing my mind that this tiny step of wedding planning has been causing me anxiety all week. It took almost no time to google search save-the-date fridge magnets, and even less time to find a website that is exactly what I was looking for. This image here is the first rough draft, and the first magnet that I put together. Not only did I do it all in under five minutes…I had so much fun with it!
I continued to have fun as I put together a few other magnets, browsing different templates, styles, and choices. As giddiness and excitement replaced the anxiety in my belly, I had a huge epiphany: Why does wedding planning have to be stressful?
It doesn’t. Point blank, it doesn’t. I’ve had such a good time putting magnets together this morning, and I still have hours of “me” time to veg out and chill out. On Saturday Alana and I are planning to put a few of these together ourselves, and possibly make a choice and order them! We also plan to browse the David’s Bridal website because our appointment with them to register our bridal party is next Saturday!
These plans, along with my plan today of browsing magnets has been causing me anxiety. And for what? So that I can end up having fun and enjoying the experience of putting all of this together?!
I’m going to a take a major step back from letting myself become anxious about the wedding planning that needs to be done. We still have so much time to plan everything and it should be fun! I should have had the great time I had this morning doing all of this. It’s our wedding! Weddings are exciting, and we are so excited to be getting married.
Major epiphany. More fun, less stress. I’m going to worry less and strive to enjoy all of this planning.
I hope you’re all having a great hump day. I’m greatly enjoying my Wednesday off much more than my previous anxious mind was thinking I would!
