Patiently Waiting (or an attempt at it!)

Engagement has been a frequent topic of discussion between my boyfriend and I for the last few months (we are in our late 20s) as we know we want to spend the rest of our lives together. He is very close with my family, and my family are terrible at keeping secrets, so it’s been hinted to me by my sister, one of my brothers and my brother in law that he may have the ring…

Our anniversary is next month and I’m trying not to think about it as I know he and I are on the same page as far as timeline and intentions. I work 40 hours a week and FILL every other minute with activities. I cycle avidly, we rock climb together and with friends after work, are filling weekends with beach days, family barbecues, visiting the local botanical gardens, I scheduled us a mini photo shoot just for fun (lol) to fill up a weekend afternoon, and we’re going river tubing the weekend before our anniversary. We also play frisbee and tennis with our friend group on lazy afternoons.

I can’t say whether my advice is good, but it works for me. I hate being bored and wondering about things, so even if I find myself with nothing to do I’ll go for a walk or clean my car, the house, do laundry, until I’m too tired to do anything but sit on the beach or watch TV. It’s really imnproved my mood and helped me to feel content, letting things happen naturally. THe last thing I want is for my SO to feel any pressure – engagement is a big step.

LOL yeah, the photoshoot is super silly. But something I’ve never done before and on a beautiful beach, and at a promotional price, so I thought why not ๐Ÿ˜› All in the name of branching out haha.

Sounds like you’re super busy and in a great spot right now though – I’m sure meditating has a lot of benefits! Yoga is a good one, too. ๐Ÿ™‚
