#SEETALKISHAADI - 2/3 :: I AM NOT AFRAID

The days are getting closer now but I’m still feeling a little impatient. Anyway here’s part 2 in the three part series on my wedding :) only 10 days away!

I titled this part ‘I am not afraid’ not just because of the awesome Jill Scott song, but also because I think I’m finally coming to terms with the incredibly bittersweet experience that getting married (in this traditional way) brings. What I mean is that after all of the bouts of sobbing and dizzying excitement, a strange calm and assurance has come over me. 

There are hundreds of reasons to be anxious and excited and there are a hundred and one reasons to be sad about leaving my home town and never coming back in the same way again. But remembrance on the transience of life and its attachments has really helped me keep a good perspective. 

With wedding week next week and a whole host of family and friends arriving in town with their own emotions, I’m focusing on staying grounded and enjoying and absorbing every single moment in the best way. 

I have been reading some great articles on marriage and particularly love this ‘alternative’ wedding guide by Harkiren Kaur on Tva Prasaad. My favourite bit is the part about ‘Chunni Fiddlers’! 

Next up is decorating the house and preparing food for all the guests! Aaminah and I will be snapping the wedding over on Snapchat so make sure you join us, our username is ‘two-browngirls’. 

Well that’s it for now, wish me luck and I’ll see you on the other side!
