Well, it’s been an amazing week! So much has happened in the past 8 days – got hitched, honeymooned/drove across four states (twice) and avoided an epic ice storm.
Laura and I are very happy to married and living life together. During our marriage counseling sessions we often talked about dealing with “life” … like jobs, arguments, money, whatever life throws at you, etc…
I often referred to a business term I learned while studying at Berry when we would talk about marriage.
You Got To Roll With The Punches - This is a phrase that refers to how boxers need to deal with the reality of actually of getting hit. Mike Tyson said it best of how hard it is to deal with a “hit” when he said “Everyone has a plan ’till they get hit.”
Well, Laura and I have been “rolling with the punches” for our wedding and our honeymoon. We’re both job searching (for the right job), worked very hard to finance a wedding with little cushion, changed our wedding reception venue 48 hours before our wedding, and honeymooned thrifty (but still had lots of fun) on the down-low in Virginia.
Today we had to cut our honeymoon short because of the ice/snow storm that is hitting the entire South. We drove 9 hours from the Virginia mountains to Savannah.
I’m confident that we will be able to deal with whatever life throws our way… We’ve already been doing it for the first week.
