In just a few weeks, I will be performing my first marriage ceremony for a friend and her fiance. I am both excited and very nervous at the same time. I have to keep reminding myself to BREATHE when I think about it and get nervous.
This past weekend, I was contacted about performing another wedding ceremony. I am still thinking about the offer. I am torn. It is a great honor to be asked to officiate something as important as the wedding vows between two people who love each other very much. And I can also see how more and more people are optioning out of a more traditional wedding and going for something more intimate. All of that is exciting and holds promise for expanding that aspect of my career! But at the same time, I must consider this point in my life, if I want to let my weekends be consumed by attending weddings. I’m already typically working two Saturdays a month, and I spend a good few hours working every Sunday, preparing for my full week ahead.
So I am torn between the honor of being asked and the added responsibility in my schedule. I need to make a decision in the next day or two.
Following my Bliss…
