I'm excited to announce, I got engaged! I'm so happy to share with the World that I have found a wonderful partner and we want to share our lives together. I love the word engaged because it seems so accurate. In life there are so many things that divide our attention; work, responsibilities of pets and home, travel, friends, and family all vying for our time. I know all of that will forever be a part of my life, especially now that we have returned home and back to everyday life. Yet today, my heart and mind are currently fully engaged to my fiancé and the life we will continue building together. It is an exciting time for us and I'm so happy to share it with you! I'm grateful for a proposal that caught me by surprise and nearly left me speechless, except "yes", of course. I'm grateful for a man that knows me so well and loves me so completely. I'm grateful to love him so fully, as well. I'm grateful to know that we have a solid foundation to build our dreams on together. I'm grateful to have so many friends and family to share this time with as we celebrate. And, honestly, I'm grateful for such a gorgeous ring that I can't stop looking at. I could go on and on with how grateful I am and the million reasons I love him so, but for today I will only list a few. I am grateful to see both of our hearts healed from old wounds. I'm grateful to see us writing this new chapter of our lives together. I'm grateful to share a playful nature and I'm grateful for all the voices and accents he can imitate to make me laugh. I'm grateful to be able to be silly without worry of judgement. I'm grateful to sing and dance together, no matter what it may look or sound like. I'm grateful to have a man that can be both my safe pillar when I need a hug and my hand back up to remind me I am strong enough, brave enough, and able enough to reach for the stars and achieve my dreams. And I'm grateful for a man willing to let me be the same for him and encourage and support him in achieving his dreams. I'm grateful for this and so much more. Thank you for reading my over the moon gratitude today. What are you grateful for? What things in your life have you engaged? Not just the things that have you busy but the things that truly occupy your heart and mind today. May your engagements reflect your dreams and may your heart be filled with love an joy to help you reach them. Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
