I don’t normally do this, but since you’re such a big part of my life (even if I’m just a small inbox item in yours), I wanted to share some big personal news with you in today’s TAoL update…
You see, last weekend, Erin and I took a few days off to escape to a quiet beachside villa near Tabanan, Bali.
And as we lay on the grass and the sun dipped its toes in the ocean I finally worked up the courage to ask her something I’d been thinking about since the very first evening I met her.
And, lucky man that I am (and despite agreeing it was silly and that the only important thing is to wake up each day and be the best partners we possibly can be), she agreed to make me the happiest man on the beach and let me try out as her husband-in-waiting.
In other words, we’re getting married. 🍾 🤗 🙌
(And if I spend too much longer thinking about it I’ll to start crying with happiness again and everyone in this co-working space will think I’m a weirdo.)
Now, it’s obviously impossible to make a decision like this without a lot of gratitude and thought and reflection.
In particular, there are hundreds of people I wish I could thank for helping me become the kind of man that Erin would ever say yes to.
But to be honest, there are times in life where it’s nice to put the thinking mind down and stop looking for lessons in everything.
So for the rest of this email, I’ll just leave you with a reading I heard over the summer at the wedding of two of the most inspiring and wonderful people I know.
I hope it resonates. I hope it inspires you. But most of all, I hope it reminds you of a time when you felt like the luckiest guy or gal on the beach.
And until next time, good luck, be awesome and go well 🙌
