This Is It!

This is it... in a few days, and I'm on my way to a completely different world. A milieu with possibilities I cannot predict, changes I cannot control and endless challenges I am not sure I can conquer. Am I frightened? You bet I am, and fear is a good thing. It crafts in me a distinction of the things that I know I can do and the things I cannot.

It is frightful to realize that I will be in a position I never anticipated I would be in at this point in my life. Words like commitment, sacrifice, adjustment, obligation, vow, surrender, loyalty, responsibility, submission, dedication were not a part of my standards when it came to relationships a few years back. Sure I know and practice these values in my daily life but not in terms of species called MEN.

I will be going to a place where I will be made responsible not just for myself but for the welfare of my other half. I will be subjected to terms I was never made aware of.

Am I prepared? What the heck... I am Kate... I am ready for anything. I know there is more to it than just the 3 minute walk down the aisle that we've been preparing for the last seven months. There will be hurdles along the way.

Life in tough, full of ups and downs and bumpy roads ahead but just as long as I have faith in myself and the ONE up there, I know I can make it. And just as long as my heart is there to hold my hand along the way, together... there will nothing, absolutely nothing that we can't conquer!
