One of the happiest moments of my life was when I got married.
My husband and I could not have planned a better wedding day. Even our honeymoon to Moorea was seriously a dream-come-true.
And looking back at it, it’s one of those days I would totally groundhog. I would love to relive that day over and over again.
But that’s not to say that what came afterward wasn’t just as good.
Life after getting married has equally been a blessing since the time it began.
Our marriage has been one of the most reassuring choices I’ve ever made. Even with the general “ups and downs”. Like, I made the choice to get married, and even now, after all these years, I never once regretted it.
And as lovely as it sounds, my marriage is NOT something out of fairytale book.
But what I can tell you is that it is the product of something that my husband and I put A LOT of time and investment into.
We didn’t just look at each other, became instantly attracted, and everything just fell into place. No. Not at all.
Creating the foundation that we now have took a lot of work! Especially during the time when were dating and engaged.
We purposely did things to help us get to know each other. We put God first in our relationship which was HUGE. And we created an intentional foundation that would allow us to enjoy what we built for generations to come.
And here’s another tidbit for you. The preparation for a solid marriage foundation started way before I even met my husband! It began with me.
Before I even found a potential Mr. Right who could become my husband, I did some things for myself, in my own life, and really set me up to have a smooth transition from “single Christian gal” to “lawfully wedded wife”.
And the best part about it was that I wasn’t even trying to do these things just so that I could find a man.
These were all things I felt upon myself that I should do just so that I could be a better woman in the end!
But I think that when you think that way, no matter what your intentions are, the blessings will overflow onto everything else.
And that’s exactly what happened for me. I set out on a mission to better myself, and it set me up for the life that I now have today!
So, before you even think about getting married… (ok, ok, maybe you’re already thinking about it!) check out these five things that you should totally do FOR YOURSELF to help you set up a blessed future for years to come!
