- Wedding: October 2010
Hi Hive, I’m fairly new to the hive but always feel inspired and recharged after reading various posts. And I’m needing a little motivational pick me up today, hoping you can help!
My wedding is coming up in less than 3 months. I’ve got a long list of ‘to-dos’ as do all brides!
For the last month or so, I’ve been in a bad mood. A bad mood like no other I’ve experienced in the past and I just can’t seem to shake it. And while I try everyday to say ‘This is a new day, I’m getting married, life is wonderful’ something inevitably detours my attempt to get in a good mood!
First of all, I hate my job. I’ve been with my current employer for a little over a year now, I’m frustrated with the lack of responsibilities, micro-managers, companies mission, I could go on and on. Needless to say Mon-Friday it’s a struggle just to get in my car and drive to the office.
My parents bought a house a little over 3 years ago, followed by my dad getting laid off and taking a significant pay cut on his next job. They’ve been trying to work with their bank on lowering their monthly mortgage payments with no avail, and have opted for a short sale and are in the process of moving.
I’m not originally from the area, and all of the close friends I’ve met in the years I’ve lived here… have all moved away 🙁 So I have no girl friends to go out with and confide my stresses to.
I got a call from the boutique I bought my wedding dress at a few weeks ago to inform me that they are moving locations. But they don’t have a location set yet and may not have one when my dress arrive around 8/15. Which was already requested from the Designer to push it back from June to August since my wedding isn’t until October…. when I bought the dress and ordered it in January!!!!
And currently, my future in-laws are in town. And while I love them dearly and cannot wait to officially become part of the family, with all the stress I am currently carrying, the FIL’s are really not helping 🙁
I could go on….
But I won’t 🙂
My fiance is wonderfully supportive. But I can’t help but be scared that he may just decide it’s too much!
With my wedding fast approaching, are there any words of advice of helping alleviate stress? I fear that I’m becoming Bridezilla!
