Bananas, y’all. BANANAS. 32 of them to be exact. You know that saying “the straw that broke the camels back?” Yea, well for me, that final straw happened to come in the form of 32 bananas. In any other moment of my life, it would be hilarious to me that there was such a big mistake with a grocery order I placed that I now have 32 bananas all going ripe at the same time in my house (bananas I didn’t order, I might add). But honestly, these bananas are what did me in.
This season is proving to be so much more stressful than I ever could have imagined, and I want to take back every negative thought I have ever had toward a friend or family member that was planning their wedding because OH MY WORD! The process of preparing for a promise of forever, for a covenant, while also planning the biggest party of your life is no small feat. Then I make myself feel guilty for feeling stressed because there are actual terrible things going on in the world but Y’ALL IT’S A LOT SOMETIMES, what is right in front of us. I’ve done my best just to keep a cool head about it all, but sometimes you get handed 32 bananas in one day and YOU JUST CAN’T HOLD THEM ALL.
Just keeping it real friends, and once again learning my limits. I tend to take on too much, and then push myself past the point of breaking. For the past 24 hours I’ve needed to just shutdown a little and get my bearings about me again, and I’m grateful that I was able to do so. It’s the reminder that I need—that I need to go to God and ask Him to be my voice of reason when I don’t have one. And everything that feels crazy and chaotic in the moment, He is holding all in His hands. Including hands full of 32 bananas. Cause I mean, if anyone could actually hold them, it would be God, right?!
To all my friends who have gotten married and planned a wedding, please tell me it is normal to have a little meltdown every once in awhile?!?! Am I going crazy? Do you need any bananas?!?!
