The Sun has Shone

I am happy. I can say that without any snippets attached. I am at peace with who I am, where I am at in my life, and where I see my life going. How long has it been since I have been able to say that? I have absolutely no idea.

It almost feels surreal to be happy; yet here I am confident. It feels marvelous.

My fiance and I have decided that instead of having a formal wedding, we are going to “elope” and runaway for a whirlwind honeymoon. I am not really sure if it counts as eloping considering we informed our family that we are planning to ditch the wedding. This way no one has to worry about spending hundreds of dollars to fly to the wedding and we don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on one night. We have decided to spend the money we would have used on a fantastical honeymoon.

Although I am not positive that calling what we have dreamed up merely a honeymoon delivers justice. The plan is as simple as it is extravagant: leave everything behind and tour the world for one year. Well, not quite the world, but a big enough chunk to satisfy my wanderlust. The main aspect of the trip will be backpacking across Europe.

I am simply a buzz with excitement. Simply the planning has a constant smile on my face. I know that now is the best time to see the world. My love’s job is growing worse and cutting hours, I have a steady income due to the settlement from my injury, we don’t have any children yet- nothing is holding us back.

On top of all of this, we are eating healthier and feeling better for it. At the end of the day, life is good.

Thank you Papa for giving me strength to walk through the storm and bringing me into the warmth of the sun.
