How to know if someone is your soulmate is explored in this contributed post.
We spend our lives looking for the one. Sometimes, we find the one, but then it turns out that that one was not, in fact, the one that was meant for us. But we keep looking, convinced that, in a world full of negativity, the next one will be the one to change our lives for the better.
And most of the time, that works out. It’s excellent, that feeling of giddy nervousness that doesn’t worry you but fills you with an anticipation that you can’t describe except to those who have experienced the same thing. The old saying goes that ‘When you know, you know.’ But how can you be sure that you know? And where do you go from there?
People are actors. It is never a conscious decision, but at the same time, the person they are at the office, or at the store isn’t necessarily who they truly are.
When meeting your soulmate for the first time, this doesn’t happen. There are no acts or scripts to follow, you cast your insecurities to the side and are just yourself. Your soulmate, too does the same. What follows is nights of endless conversation, excuses to see one another and a complete lack of anxiety.
YOU’RE WILLING TO TAKE A LEAP
Often, those who meet their soulmate will immediately by considering the future with them. Even the most logical and cautious among us will start hearing wedding bells and catch themselves mumbling ‘I do.’ whenever they start daydreaming.
It might even go even further, wedding venues, researching Tacori wedding rings and wedding bands at Whiteflash and juggling which of the weird relatives being there, and which can stay at home. Where you were once nervous anytime the conversation of buying a house together or having children came up, now, you are rattling off baby names in your sleep, and picturing your dream home.
IT JUST FEELS RIGHT
Another feeling that is difficult to describe. But after a day, a week, or a month with your soulmate, you just know. You never feel as if anything you do together is a chore. You can sit up all night without running out of topics to talk about, and, during these long talks, you find yourself nodding and agreeing with everything each other says.
But this agreement and mutual respect is not the same as bumping into someone at a bar and agreeing with them hoping they like you. Instead, you’re not even thinking about the other liking you, because that much is obvious already. Deep, meaningful discussions can go one of two ways; either you find you agree with everything, and even if you don’t agree entirely, you are respectful enough to listen to them explain, or, the minute a conscientious issue arises the conversation comes to a screeching halt. But with a soulmate, that doesn’t happen.
Embarking on a search for a soulmate can be a long road filled with false promises and occasional heartbreak. But, continuing along that path will soon lead to discovering that the one is out there, and they’re searching for you just as scrupulously as you are.
Tips to help with wedding stress are explored in this contributed post.
No matter how organised you are, planning a wedding is a stressful business. It’s the biggest day of your life; there’s a lot of money involved and some important decisions to be made. It can be a stressful time for any bride-to-be, but it’s important to keep calm for the sake of your health and to make sure that you can enjoy the day you’ve worked so hard to plan.
Here are some stress-busting methods to help you keep calm when planning your wedding.
Set a budget that you can stick to
You’ll often hear of couples blowing their wedding budget, but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you do your research beforehand, you can get a better estimate of what everything will cost. Rather than budgeting under the average price of different wedding components, budget for a bit over. That way, you’ll find yourself with some surprising savings when you do manage to get a good deal. You can cut costs in areas such as your wedding stationery by buying them online; you can get save the dates, pocketfold wedding invitations and more at an affordable rate to keep the costs down. There are plenty of cost-cutting solutions to help you stick to your wedding budget that can ensure you can keep the financial side of wedding planning under control.
Take a break from it
As difficult as it can be, sometimes you just need to take a break from the chaos of wedding planning. While your wedding is important, it’s not the only thing happening in your life, or the lives of others for that matter. Take a break now and then and do something completely non-wedding related. Whether you visit some friends, indulge yourself with a spa day or go for a nice meal with your partner - make the time free from wedding talk to give you a chance to think about something else.
Practice common stress busters
Your mental health is important, not just when you’re planning a wedding but for your general health too. It’s important to get into the habit of exercising, getting enough sleep and other stress-busters to help you combat mental health problems. Find things that you enjoy that help keep your mind distracted, as well as those that can help you to chill out. Make some time for yourself that will give you the opportunity to recharge ready to tackle the next items on that long wedding to-do list.
When planning your wedding, it’s helpful to talk to other people - plenty of people get married each year, and you can get some great advice from them. Get yourself a wedding planning checklist to make sure you can keep track of everything that needs to be done so that you don’t end up with any last-minute shocks or surprises. With some preparation, organisation and plenty of time to relax - you can enjoy the wedding planning process and keep it stress-free for a day you’ll remember forever.
