If you’ve been following me on social media, you know I’ve FINALLY found my soul-mate. Phew! That was one heck of a hunt, I must say.
Anyway, I’ve always looked at other brides and pondered what’s going on in their heads (in a very non-stalkerish way, I promise) and now that I am going to be one (tee-hee), I thought to myself- why not pen it down?
After all, blogging is what keeps my writing bug alive.
I truly hope these musings fail to cause any kind of stupefaction .
Why this post?
I’ve been to my fair share of weddings and chilled with quite a few brides. There was always ‘something’ about them that would entice me. The more I had them around, the more I wanted to be around them. I would always look at them with utmost awe and think how princess-like would they feel to get the best clothes, jewellery, make-up artists, beauticians, hairstylists, …, attention, importance… oh and of course LOVE.
What’s in there?
There’s always a mystery going on in our heads that nobody can solve. There’s a bag of emotion always following us no matter where we go. We are anxious yet harum-scarum, sad to leave our folks/career (a big chunk of our identity behind) yet super stoked to start a NEW life, awkward about suddenly being responsible for another person yet proud & mature, so on and so forth.
“Log kya kahenge?”
When did marriage between two people who love each become all about ‘other’ people?
Easier said than done
Decades of education- judging me right now. But who cares?
Well, I don’t!
Learnings- hard way.
Ugh these rigid ideologies.
We are so attached and bogged down by our code of right and wrong that we waste no time in judging others and ridiculing their preferences. It’s only when we are put in that exact same boat, do we realise how life always throws curveballs at you and how tricky it is to juggle between everybody’s version of right and wrong.
A beautiful phase…
