I was stuck on day 25 for more than a couple of weeks. It is one of the problems which comes with being over analytical. I refer to it as paralysis by analysis.

You got it Bruce Lee!

Day 25 is asking me to speak of my favorite item. This topic of gratitude does not speak to me on any level; of the multiple possessions and items I own, none of them hold too much value to me as in the end regardless of price, brand, label, sentimental value behind an item, it is all stuff. My stuff used to matter to me more in my 20s and 30s.

I guess my wedding rings are my favorite “items”. The engagement ring represents an ask of spending the rest of my life with Brian.

My engagement ring given to me on December 16, 2020

The champagne diamond in my engagement ring comes from my Mom’s belated “engagement ring”. She married my Dad at 19 and they were just kids so when they got married, they had very simple gold bands made. The ring she received later in her 20s had a cinnamon diamond on each side of the main diamond.

Brian is going to have earrings made for me from the cinnamon diamonds for one of our wedding anniversaries. I wonder which one, hmmmm…

My wedding band!

It is a very basic band which is what I wanted. My style in general is simple and I like clean lines. The band represents a promise to spend the rest of my life loyal and loving my husband Brian. It represents our marriage vows which we both made with much analysis…

I am getting better at making decisions
Words of wisdom above

Paralysis by analysis is a real thing. Thank goodness both Brian and I were on the same page when we became engaged. We have the rings to prove it and I am grateful for these particular items.

Stay safe and be kind.

Peace & Love – Rachel
