Common Stories.Vows

Vows. I just got married a few minutes ago in a beautiful and small ceremony in my hometown. All my family was there to celebrate and support me. I met my husband five years ago when we were only kids and we went to school together. After months of preparation and details, last week was time to write my weddings vows. I tried to think about how much I love him and how lucky I was to have him in my life and it was so easy to make the promise to love him and support him no matter what. Then, while I was writing all those commitments and beautiful thoughts, I realized that my life was about to change deeply and forever and that gave me mixed feelings. It was then, when I decided I would write the vows for myself first and that I would keep them always on my mind: I’m going to get married very soon but I promise I’ll never forget who I really am and what I love. I also promise that my first commitment will be always with myself and that I’ll take care of myself no matter what. I will never let my passions die and I will fight to be happy, strong and independent… And only then I will be ready to love you too.

Votos. Acabo de casarme hace unos minutos en una bonita y pequeña ceremonia en mi ciudad natal. Toda mi familia estaba allí para celebrarlo y apoyarme. Conocí a mi marido cinco años atrás cuando éramos solo unos críos y íbamos juntos a la escuela. Después de meses de preparación y detalles, la semana pasada llegó el momento de escribir mis votos matrimoniales. Intenté pensar en cuánto le quiero y en lo afortunada que soy de tenerle en mi vida y era tan fácil hacer la promesa de amarle y apoyarle sin importar las circunstancias.Entonces, mientras escribía todos esos compromisos y bonitos pensamientos, me di cuenta de que mi vida estaba a punto de cambiar profundamente y para siempre y eso me provocó sentimientos encontrados. Fue entonces cuando decidí que primero escribiría mis votos para conmigo misma y los tendría presentes siempre: Voy a casarme muy pronto pero prometo que nunca olvidaré quién soy realmente y las cosas que amo. También prometo que mi primer compromiso será siempre conmigo misma y que siempre me cuidaré por encima de todo. Nunca dejaré que lo que me apasiona muera y que lucharé para ser fuerte, feliz e independiente… Y sólo entonces estaré preparada para amarte a ti también.
