Note from the author
There is no occasion, sentiment or sacrament quite like marriage. At no other time in our lives do we make such a solemn and binding promise of commitment to another human being.
Marriage is an allegiance between two people in love, and a pact between like-minded souls to become even better friends with the passing of each year.
But as with all friendships, there are times of “better and worse, richer and poorer, and sickness and health.”
True friends weather the storms together. They listen, learn and laugh together. They trust each other with their inner most secrets and wishes. They respect and encourage each other’s individuality. They prop their mate up when they’re down. And, they always see the good in each other even when they’re feeling bad.
In the words of Arthur Gordon: “Nothing is easier than saying words, and nothing is harder than living them day after day.”
Being a goddess for life, however, will give you the inner strength and fortitude to live your promises day after day, for all of your tomorrows, and the tomorrows after that.
Remaining connected with your inner goddess will give you an infinite well of resources to draw upon – a sense of belonging, creativity, individuality, gratitude, truth, trust and a connection with the divine.
You will be able to stand in your power. You will know when to offer support, and when to ask for it. When to listen, and when to give advice. When to speak the truth, and what that truth is!
And when you are standing in your power – in all your authentic, beautiful glory – your soul mate will have no choice but to say, “I do.” After all, who wouldn’t want to be nourished by all these gifts you bring to the relationship?!
And now it is time for me to say: Enjoy your wedding day, dear bride!
This is the day you will stand by the side of your love and offer your lifelong promise of love, trust and faithfulness.
In return, you will be offered the same, and the both of you will embark on the biggest adventure of your lives: to live the rest of your days as husband and wife.
I wish you well on your journey together!
