So, I finally got engaged. Great!! Well, not really… My Fiance and I relocated back to our home state, although I had lined up my dream job, his company just shut down and he’s looking for an entirely new career change. In the midst of all of this, he proposed. The hardest part is, you can’t plan a wedding without a budget and you can’t set a budget without a job (we will be paying for the wedding). I have been waiting 6 patient months to even say the word wedding so I don’t stress him out and add pressure to finding his new career. I’m exhausted. I guess I just need moral support that this is in fact tough and it’s Ok to feel this way. I want to be excited and plan and talk about all the fun things we can do at our wedding, and instead I feel like it’s a ‘hush hush’ topic that is forbidden to talk about. I know that once he finds his new career we will be on track but in the meantime, I’m trying my hardest to understand that his pride is on the line too. Stuck between the rock on my hand and a hard place…

In My Humble Opinion be really happy that you received the engagment that you wanted. So many times we stress about things that we shouldn’t. Imagine being in the midst of wedding planning and then there is a job loss or an illness – then what would you do. Just prepare and get all your ideas ready so that you can implement things when the time comes.

My Darling Husband lost his job right after the wedding. We eloped, so we had to cancel the party afterwards. When we started to plan a party again, he got layed off from his new job too. The obstacles never go away. Sometimes there is less of them, that’s all. The best advice I can give you is to try and find a way to better cope with many more obstacles to come. If you can find a way to be positive about any situation, it becomes easier to deal with.
Hang in there! Hugs and congrats!
