Wedding Planning Planner
What’s new? In this fast pace of everything and everyone moving faster than I can imagine. I have run a race worth speaking about and I am looking forward to just that. You see technology changed the world. It hits us daily with the bloggers, the trend setters and the what’s important and what is not.
Not much different than before at the same time totally different. Why because I now too confess at how easy it is to get my hands on the information at hand. I cheat! I confess I cheat now. I cheat at instead of picking up the recipe book I look at my phone or device to look up a recipe and then I think, that’s different than I remember it. Of corse it’s different. It’s not from the book or the person who wrote the book that I am looking up. How silly is that to look in a new place for something old.
Non-the-less that’s what I think is happening to many of us. We decluttered ourselves away. We want that old familiar person, recipe, favorite thing, however we are using a new way. What is it with humans that we need the comfort of old. We need to feel like people care more than a DM or Text Message. That doesn’t fill the void of being near someone we love.
We read all the time how so and so broke up their marriage over a text message. Now we have photographic evidence that her husband is having an affair, his wife is seeing someone new. What do we do, snap a photograph and text message it. Rather that going to that person and telling them the truth. We don’t want to be involved. We want to win in the race of life. Not understanding how painful listening all the time to the yelling can be.
I still am amazed at the insensitivity this new age has brought us. We are in a new age when we think faster is better. Is it really. I was recently confronted with the reality of my childhood friend who has been married many times allowed her family to have a sister-cousin. It has taken me several years to understand what that meant. Being of a different religion, I have no words of comprehension how how this has affect her and her believes. What makes that acceptable. Hate the sin, not the sinner I have been told. We all have sins of choice. Addictions we battle within ourselves. Who am I to judge, I ask myself constantly. Yet, does my opinion matter if I gave it. It has been years and I have been avoiding talking with her. Mainly, because I don’t have words to express what I feel without sounding like a judgmental bitch. I wan’t her to know I love 💕 her. Yet, I am, angry that she allowed this to happen. I am also angry at myself for feeling the way I do. We all fall short. So who am I? Who am I to have such strong opinion that I want to yell at her spouse! I can’t, so I don’t, therefore I won’t get involved in my childhood friends marriage. That has left us with pleasantries during the Christmas holidays. Short little somethings that fit onto a postcard style Christmas 🎄 Card.
What’s new in your 2019?
If I keep it all business then this is what I would share. I am close to finishing my second book. It looks like social media is playing a part in telling me what they like. This makes my second guessing myself, so much less and I am happy to report that it is a slow going. Event planning continues to be on the cutting edge of technology mixed with business. Cookie cutter weddings still continue to be a way to cut back cost of weddings. Weddings in San Diego are averaging $35,000/year. I have added a new service to my business. It’s a business that can travel wherever the client want to pay for me to plan their event. This makes things interesting.
I hope your mid-year 2019 check is doing great things for you!
