I'm going to spend less, save more, and work less so I can have more time with my fiance and friends.
I used to be the go-to girl for all of my friends. I liked that. I liked that my friends would call me at all hours of the night if they needed a friend. I liked when people would show up at my house and make me go on a long drive with them, just so they can talk. I liked that I would send people "thinking of you texts" just because I was thinking of them.
Nowadays, my time goes more like this. "I haven't talked to so and so in awhile. I better check in when I get off work." Get off work, drive to other job, work. Get off, drive home, kiss my already sleeping fiance and pass out. Rinse and Repeat.
I feel like I've been such a bad friend because I've been focusing on an end game - affording my wedding. If I just keep working my ass off, I will get there. If I just keep working my ass off we will have a wonderful wedding! WAIT just one minute missy... who is going to come to your wedding if you don't have time to see them or talk to them or express an interest in their lives??? Besides, really, what is soooo important about the party? I know, you're a party girl. You love parties buuuut let's get serious. It's not about the wedding, it's about your marriage. Right now all I can talk and think about is this wedding, and Iman and I have just been sitting there going "How's your day? It was good. How was yours? Good. Busy. Great. Want to lay in bed and watch tv? Want to eat food? We should go on a walk. Yeah, let's do that." And then we go to bed. I like ADVENTURE and I'm just way too tired to adventure.
So I'm for real going to make some changes. I'm not going to be scared to quit or go talk to my boss about working less hours. I have a built in safety net living at home and if I ask, I will receive. So I'm asking for my wedding to work out without me working my body to death.
I know I've been talking like this for awhile, but I also happened to come across some awesomely inspiring blogs yesterday. Check them out:
