Honestly, if you surround yourself with good people, everything else will work itself out.
One of my favorite people in the world got married yesterday, and I had the honor of standing up with her while it happened. It was an incredible weekend. I wish I could put it on repeat forever because it might be the best weekend I’ve had in a very long time.
The man she married isn’t from the fine state of Missouri, so we had no idea who the groomsmen were, or what they were like. We knew their names, and that was it. It’s kind of nerve-wracking. You’re combining two groups of people for basically an entire weekend and hopefully they’ll like each other and get along. If you’re lucky like we were, you’ll wind up with the absolute best case scenario: everybody winds up making some new friends and having the time of their lives, and even starts planning a reunion trip to Vegas next summer.
Two really fantastic, good people married each other. Two people that surrounded themselves with other fantastic, good people (heyyyy). So of course, we all hit it off immediately and had a blast.
Also, in my opinion, anyone that you can scream the lyrics to Queen and Journey songs with is an A+ human being.
There was one conversation I had that birthed that italicized quote, and it just stuck with me for the rest of the night as I danced like no one was watching, despite the fact that many people were. Not entirely sure if that’s verbatim, the music was loud, I was tired, and there was alcohol, but it was something along those lines. No matter what happens in life, what decisions you struggle to make, jobs you get or lose… as long as you have good people by your side, everything is going to be just fine.
It might even be…top-notch.
