My Five "New Life" Resolutions.

Last night, I got engaged. As K and I sat there, on the blessed hot pink couch and exchanged rings amidst claps and hoots and cheers and blessings, everything blurred in a mad kaleidoscope of colours. And yet every single person’s expressions stood out in sharp relief. Varying degrees of emotion, laughter, disbelief, love, happiness, joy. I wished I’d had a camera. To capture my very own sassy quirky perspective on being an engaged woman.

Now that I have been engaged almost 24 hours, I am older and wiser. Which is why I share with you my “New Life” Resolutions. We all make resolutions on December 31st, in hope that the coming year something will be better… Similarly, as I step into my “New Life” as someone’s better half, I make some resolutions…for better or for worse.

1. I will try to always remember the flip and thrill of these days. And try to keep it alive.

2. I will not be cynical for the sake of sounding married.

3. Every single day, I will look for one thing that I appreciate in my relationship. And then tell K about it.

4. I will continue to be a GOOD friend- one who makes time to bitch, listen, support, shop, bum, chill and have coffee at Espresso with her girlfriends.

5. I will stay me, and improve, and remind myself that the road here was not easy and once upon a time, just a few weeks ago, I, too was a confused searching-for-the-meaning-of life-twenty something.

  1. sara,
    as a newly wed young woman, your 5 pointers are making me nod myself silly. its so terrifyingly easy to fall into the taking for granted khadda- a constant reminder to not do that helps. the best resolution however was the taking time to be a friend. theres nothing quite as awful as a girlfriend who gets hitched and thats all she gets for a long long while.

    i hope you and mr. k will be happiness itself. whatever else you do before, after, during big day, dont stop these mad, happy illustrations.

  2. Congratulations Sara! 🙂

    May you live a fairytale married life, happily ever after! 😀

    I’d like to give you just one advice, and I want you to take this seriously. Don’t stay engaged for long and get married as soon as possible.

  3. Mubarakkkkk ho! That’s so wonderful=)MashahAllah.Congratulations to the two of you…Here’s to a happy life…*cheers*

    cheesooo, thanks for the pep talk. half the battle is won if we even begin to realize these things.
