Fall-ing In Love: The Ongoing Saga
As summer is coming to an end and fall is beginning, I reflect on what a wonderful wedding season it has been. This is not to say it has been easy; believe me, it’s been anything but easy sometimes. One valuable thing I have learned over the course of the last few months is that you really have to fight to stay in love. This goes for not
only people, but for what you do. Starting this business, I was full of passion and nothing could stop me, even when it seemed impossible to some. Then life happens and I get frustrated staying up until 4 am making sure the flowers stay the freshest, or burning my self trying to hot glue things together. In those moments I honestly just want to give up in frustration. I want to quit and just go to bed and be done with it. I want to say it’s not worth my time.
I fell in love with weddings, events, and most importantly flowers, but sometimes I have to fight to stay in love with them. Everyone at some point feels this way about something. It could be a job, a fiancé, and friendship, but no matter what that looks like to you I want to encourage you to not give up. Keep your head up and never lose sight of why you started. The most worthwhile things in life are the things you have to fight for. I know it’s cliche and doesn’t always seem to be worth it, but I’m here to tell you it is. If we didn’t fight for things we wanted, we would have things that we settled for; a life of just “okay.”
God gave every singe one of us unique gifts to use in some way to make a difference during our time here on earth. He gave us passion and love to drive us to things we could never see ourselves doing. Even when it seems easiest to give up, we have to remember the bigger picture. When we think others are better than ourselves, we have to remember that just like every limb in the body serves a purpose, so do we. (Read 1 Corinthians 12:12-31)
If I would give up now, I could miss out on meeting people that could change my life or even change theirs. So we continue on, into fall. Things slow down but I am taking this time to enjoy all the opportunists I have had and that are to come.
