Woke up this morning to Jane and Nate’s GORGEOUS Yale wedding being published on Style Me Pretty Massachusetts! I’m so so thrilled to see to see their hard work and good taste be recognized by one of the top wedding blogs. Obviously, I’m also grateful for the awesome publicity it brings as well.
Which has got me thinking about counting my blessings. I know from the outside things are looking great for me: I’ll soon be published in the Knot Regional Magazine, have had several publications on Style Me Pretty, and I just got accepted to be a Style Me Pretty Little Black Book Vendor and a Green Wedding Shoes Preferred vendor. All these amazing things were goals of mine for 2013 that I wasn’t even sure would happen for me until maybe a year from now or more. But so much of success is how you feel about it. I haven’t FELT successful lately, I’ve felt so stressed in fact at the fact that I’ve only booked three weddings so for 2013. My goal is 15-20.
But feelings can be so deceiving. Truth is truth. But feelings come and go depending how how much sleep you’ve gotten or what you ate! Truth is that booking season for 2013 is really just starting. Truth is that all this new publicity will definitely bring in business. Truth is that I have several inquiry meetings with great couples coming up. Truth is that I need to stop worrying about the future so much and focus on what amazing things are happening in the present. I love the way Jesus says it: “Do not worry about your life…look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” (Man, Jesus, that right there is hard enough as it is!!) But he also says, “…do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” What a hard thing to do! But its an awesome journey of trusting God and every time I think I’m going to derail, He provides me exactly what I need, right when I need it! So I am going to do my best to keep counting my blessing and be grateful for what I’m given today. WOHOO Style Me Pretty! :) Here’s a pic of the feature below and since you can’t see the full photo I included it below that. :)
