On June 6, 2015, I was proposed to by my boyfriend of four years. I had a feeling that he was going to pop the question, but I didn’t know when, where or how he was going to do such things.

So how did he pop the question?

How he ask? As I was helping him move and arrange boxes, etc., in his apartment, we started to talk about the future as we always do. There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t talk about the future, whether it’s our individual goals, or goals  we have together. He then started to walk towards his room. As he was proceeding, he said “Brittany come here.” I started to follow him. When I met him in his room, he started to say the word OUR , which isn’t new to me because that word was in his/our vocabulary everyday, but this was different. As he was talking he started getting teary eyed and began pouring his heart and soul into the atmosphere around us. He reach into a case he had on the dresser and pull out a box with a white ribbon tied neatly around it. He started to cry heavily but manly at the same time and I started to cry with him as well. We both were crying together and our souls connected. Slowly but surely, he got down on one knee and ask me the following question. “Brittany Elaine Thomas, will you marry me?” He was shaking and I gently put my arms around him and I said YES! He looked at me as I was wiping the tears that were flowing from his eyes and said ” I couldn’t wait any longer and that it was the right time.” We call our parents right after that before anyone else knew.

Now that’s part one!  Part two was what was suppose to happen but he couldn’t hold it in any longer. We was over my sis house for our nephews 2nd birthday party. I went to the restroom and as I was coming out, I heard my song playing in the background. The song was “Grow old with you,” from the movie, The WeddingSinger which is one of my favorite movies. As I walk into the living room my nephew Kyran said “I found this,” and gave me a ring. When I turned around Zach was right there, got down on one knee and said “Will you do me the honor in becoming my wife,” and I said YES, once again.

It’s crazy how life works. When we sit back, complain and wish things will get better, nothing happens other then no progress. However, when we get up, stop complaining and take life by the horns and control it, everything works for the better. So if you are feeling down, depressed, tired of having no results, etc… GET UP and LIVE LIFE because at the end of the day its your life and no one else’s. 

As I am sitting here thinking about my life, a smile is upon my face. When I look at what I’ve been through and where I’m going, I can’t help but to think about my friends along the way. I truly believe that people underrate friendships. Yes, there are those friendships that are good, bad and ugly but overall friendships are very important and vital to everyday life. Some friendships don’t last long due to circumstances while others lose it’s substance, however, every friend plays an important role within our lives. When I think about my friends, I think about the ups, downs and the paths we have created for ourselves and is still creating such as girlfriends, boyfriends, marriage, children, college degrees, jobs, etc., and it’s just the beginning. My friends are great individuals and I am so bless and happy to have them in my life. Are we the same? No. Do we have different point of views? Yes. Do we have arguments? Of course. But at the end of the day we respect one another. I can truly say that my friends are an extension of me and that makes me smile within.

 

This is dedicated to my friends

 

People fall in love with the “idea,” versus the reality. Having a wife/husband, boyfriend/girlfriend, best-friend or getting married etc., is wonderful but the reality is that, it’s what you make it and that can be positive, negative or both. I’m not saying that falling in love with the idea of something is bad but when you fall in love with the idea and try to change a person, control them and their surroundings, that is when the idea is bad. When we look at social media, we see so many people showcasing their love for another person and as we are looking at those individuals, we might feel out of the loop and lonely and that is when the idea enters into our mindsets and that is when we fall head first with the idea of having someone to call our own or go to the next level with. When we fall head first with the idea and then get someone to call our own, many people try to create a life/relationship that reflects what they see in movies, celebrities, social media etc., and that can break your relationship. Therefore, don’t fall in love with the “idea,” of having a wife/husband, boyfriend/girlfriend, best-friend or getting married etc., just because you’re trying to fit in or prove something to someone because at the end of the day it can and will bite you where it hurts the most and that is in the heart.

It’s crazy what silence and relaxation can do to you. Here I am laying in my bed listening to slow jams/ r&b and as I reminisce on my day I realize that it was great. Even though some points throughout my day were low, I can’t lay in my bed and ponder about the little things. We as humans have to stop letting the bad overcome the good in our lives. Life is short.

Feeling invisible is the worst feeling especially when it’s coming from the people/person that mean the most to you. As you’re walking around and smiling internally all of a sudden it goes away cause when you say hi, touch their shoulder etc, you get no response but if you do, it’s quit and subtle. Feeling invisible is the worst feeling especially when it’s coming from the people/person that mean the most to you, when you want to be seen the most.

I am one of those people that keep quiet and to myself but I know everything just by looking. Is it a blessing? Yes and no because at times it can be great but at other times it can be displeasing. Body language, they way people talk, respond, what they post on social networks, stare etc is something that lets me know what is going on without the person directly talking to me. Yea, I am one of those people.
