#66 Encouraging thoughts

I saw this on 2000 dollar wedding and it helped me relax. I've been quite nervous thinking about being in front of so many people and being the center of attention. I know I don't seem like a very shy person, but when it comes to big audiences, my stomach hurts just thinking about it. Anyway, this helped, and I thought it was quite sweet. It was written by the bride as a wish to future brides. This is how I want to feel. :)

Look at how relaxed I was. Fully present in the moment. Basking in it. Soaking it in. I was not saturated in stress.
My shoes and dress were comfortable enough for dancing. My beauty radiated out of me; it was not applied to me.
I got to spend quality time with my friends and family. I was myself, not a show. In fact, I was my fullest expression of self.
I do not remember whether the invitations were letterpress or whether the flowers at the ceremony were the same ones at the reception.
The wedding favors or the fanciness of the food did not make memories. The sincerity did. The connection did. The time together did.
It did not matter whether every last detail conformed to the signature colors. Instead of saying, “What a beautiful bouquet,” the guests said, “What a beautiful love.”"
