My mind is moving at a quickening pace with ideas.  I should be relaxing, I am on my honeymoon after all, but I have a little downtime and when what you do is more fun than relaxing by the pool or playing a round of golf, it’s hard to equate it to work.

I got married a few days ago and the whole occurrence has been one of the most pleasurable experiences of my life. From the planning of the wedding to the honeymoon, things have fallen into place as though they were destined to do so. 

For the past twenty-four months my life has been in a continual upswing. Now that I am on the backside of assisting with a political campaign, a major nonprofit event, the purchase of a new home and my recent nuptials, I’m feeling unbelievably revived. Wouldn’t you think I could use a vacation?

I don’t think I can explain it just yet, I need more time to ponder this new feeling of “aliveness” – for lack of a better word.  Colors are brighter, sounds are more pleasant, air is fresher…

Sure, you might be thinking, “Well, of course life is better now. You just got married, you’re in love. It will wear off.” You might be right, but I have a feeling, it’s all connected to bigger things. I feel as though this is just the beginning, not the end.  Sure, sure, skeptics will advise me to watch out.  With respect to all skeptics in the world, take a hike

You might be thinking, “Shouldn’t he be feeling a sense of joy? He did just get married after all.”  Only, it’s more than just a sense of joy.  Yes, I am very happy that I found the woman of my dreams to spend the rest of my life with.  However, what I am feeling is more like justified validation that my life, overall, is going down the right path. It’s as though I am going down a path with no map and all the signs I encounter validate that I am moving in the right direction.
