Describe the happiest day of your life. It can be a day that has already taken place or one that has yet to come. What does it consist of? Who is there? What’s taking place? And what about that day makes it the happiest day of your life? Read on for my thoughts, and let me know about the happiest day of your life or how you’d like it to be.
I’ve already described the happiest day of my life: my wedding. If you haven’t read about it, you can do so here. A wedding is a series of days because of all the work that goes into it. Frankly, I was most nervous about the wedding rehearsal dinner because I sang a song during it: “I Am Your Child” by Barry Manilow. The song was for our parents, but I still had a room full of people I cared about watching me. Watch the video, and you’ll see how my emotions took over.
My emotions also took hold during the wedding. When I came down the aisle with my Dads, the reality of the moment hit me, and I cried. Naturally, since I cried, they cried. We were all a blubbering mess, but the best kind. I think it’s important to cry when you feel it coming on. Letting out your emotions and fully embracing them, especially on such an important day, is essential to being human.
Everyone told us leading up to our wedding, “Something’s going to go wrong, but don’t worry. No one will know what went wrong except you.” I kept waiting for this mysterious thing to go wrong. Guess what? It never did. We had gorgeous weather, great food, and excellent music. No one tripped coming down the aisle. It was all perfect. Nothing went wrong. If anyone tells you what was told to us, ignore them. You have enough to worry about.
My wedding was the happiest day of my life for countless reasons. The obvious reason is I got to marry Stephanie, an excellent partner in life and now a great mother. Had we not gotten married on that day, we wouldn’t have Oliver. If you think I was a blubbering mess at my wedding, you should have seen me when he was born. I was getting emotional about getting emotional before the final push. Sharing our wedding day with those we love made it even more special. I remember my cousin, Chris, who served as my best man, hugging me afterward and crying. Those moments of real human connection are the fabric of the happiest days of our lives.
Think about it. Describe the happiest day of your life. What is it? I’m here to tell you that you can imbue whatever made that the happiest day of your life into every single day of your life. I think balance is the key to happiness. Try and balance out each day with a little bit of everything you love, and before you know it, you won’t just have the happiest day of your life; you’ll have the happiest life possible.
