Hope the new year is going well for you all.
I started the blog just to talk, to talk about anything and everything and for you guys to talk to me and share our stories and our feeling etc…..diary of my REAL life!
Over the Christmas and the New Year I heard of so many people getting engaged and married so I thought I’d share my crazy story and my experience with engagement rings and marriage!
So if I tell you that I have been engaged 3 times but have never managed to walk down the isle, you’d probably think I’m messing but I’m not! Yes I have said yes to 3 guys and even bought one dress but to be honest, there’s nothing like a ring on your finger to make you realise what you really want in life and from your life partner.
The problem with me is that I like to help people and fix their problems and sort their lives out and make everything ok while completely forgetting about myself and my needs and wants in life. I would also say to myself, Oh its ok, I don’t mind if he doesn’t have a job or money because he LOVES me and Ill sort it all out bla bla bla…….thinking back now I must have been bloody crazy for at least 15 years of my life. LOL well i’m still crazy but just on my own terms…… 🙂
My second engagement was the hardest one for me to get over…Even though all the break ups were my decision, it doesn’t mean that its not the hardest thing in the world and it took me a very long time to get over that one. You always think, why did it not work out, why cant you find a man who looks at you like you’re the only person in the world. Why cant you have the fairy tale?
I have to say the older I get the more I realise that relationships are one of the hardest things we have to deal with in life, they aren’t easy and take work but if you find the right person well its all a little easier. Like my parent, they have been married 45 years, they got married at 21 and I have always wanted to have a marriage like theirs. They’ve had tough times but their love for each other is on a different level and it inspires me everyday. They are truly best mates and soul mates and belong together.
Maybe that’s why I said yes 3 times because I was desperate to find what they have. I love being in love and been loved by someone but I now know I was definitely going about it the wrong way! lol
Every time I pass a jewelers my sister makes me run past just in case I start looking at the engagement rings! 🙂 lol
So I decided the best thing to do was to stop settling for second best and go for what truly makes you happy and don’t stop looking until you find it. We all deserve true love and I believe that there is someone out there for everyone. Sometimes they are just under your nose and you haven’t realised! 🙂
So one wedding dress and three rings later….lets just say, I am now truly very happy and he is pretty perfect for me! ❤
Let me know if any of you guys can relate to me and my craziness in any way LOL
