Wedding Day – A Haiku
her big day approaching fast
flowers in her hair
Today we where asked the following from Daily Prompt:
It’s the night before an important event: a big exam, a major presentation, your wedding. How do you calm your nerves in preparation for the big day?
That depends on what the occasion is. Would you really want to miss the part of the tingling, nervous butterflies that come with good news, such as when you are about to get married, or go on the trip of a lifetime, or move into the house of your dreams?
I think not! This excitement is not something to mask or get over, but to savor. After all it is a milestone that often is only reached after time and energy spend, after careful planning, after many actions that brought you to the point, right before the realization of a dream.
Savoring and relishing in that moment of being at the brink of greatness – in which ever form it expresses itself – is a blessings. It is a chance to be grateful for having made it this far, and a chance to hope for many more moments in your life, just like it it.
What is your approach to a big, important event? What do you think about the nervous excitement that comes with it, and how do you deal with it?
