Wedding Flower Bouquet: Once in a while, someone says something at just the right moment and it just resonates. A lightbulb goes off. More missing pieces fall into place, and your search for meaning or fulfillment – or whatever it is – becomes that much more vivid.
That’s exactly how I felt at a recent wedding reception. The father of the Bride aptly said during his pre-dinner speech:
“Some of the best days of your life haven’t even happened yet”.
Aside from what he said, it was the way he said it; proudly, wisely, with certainty. I then thought it poignantly applied to all stages of life, not only the beginning of a union. Beyond life’s seismic milestones, his wise words are equally applicable to smaller forks in the road, when deciding between option A or B becomes a cumbersome process filled with wonder, doubt, and delight…and makes us queasy.
Should I choose this job or that? This school or that? Live here or abroad? Separate or stay? Get help now or never? Just think of the countless hours of indecisiveness you’ve spent in the last month alone. For me, it’s draining.

Thus, when embarking on any change how reassuring would it be if someone always told you some of the best days of your life await! And when advice is given authentically from an expert to a novice, it just feels uplifting and doable.
With this profound perspective, I gained from the Bride’s dad, I actually feel more assured my decisions will bring out the best. One road may be longer or harder, but indeed the best is yet to come. There is a reward for turning any corner and exploring beyond our comfort zone; it’s confidence, opportunity, or maybe just a healthy laugh or cry. Regardless, it makes for a better life.
