I wasn't sure I would write more on this blog, but I think for now I've decided to see how I feel about blogging about this new part of my life and take it from there.
I'd really love to talk about marriage now and what I've learned so far.
Lesson #1: Letting Go
I'd like to reiterate the fact that it's absolutely not what I expected, it's way more complex and 100 times better. I always had these pictures in my head about what married life would be like, and if you too have ideas and expectations, I suggest you dispose of them now rather than later. I would say that this issue was the number one thing that has prevented me from reaching pure happiness throughout my life (e.g. school, seminary, camp, etc. When I expected it to be one way and it ended up being totally different, I was devastated and couldn't move forward.) Here, though, thank G-d, I think I've finally learned my lesson. It's incredible what you can do with your life when you just let go. And by letting go, I mean in every sense. Stop stressing yourself out, stop needing things to be your way, stop having to take control and viola! Happy time! (Yes, I'm very obviously talking to myself, so there's no need to take offense!)
G-d willing more to come :)
P.S. I absolutely adore men in wedding rings. And if not rings, then I personally think that married men need to have some type of blazing sign to all those ravenous man-hunters out there that they are off-limits (speaking as a former man hunter myself ;) I constantly find myself in situations where I feel the urgent need to snap my fingers like a black woman and yell "getcho paws off my man, woman, or Ima cutchu!" Yeah, um. I'm not really that violent. It's really just all in my head. I think...
Peace out (See! I'm peaceful!)
