I’ve been having cold feet. As the dust of planning settles, and everything falls into place, I’ve had time to think – to freak out a bit, and to realise the things that will never be. I’m never going to date a pop star; volunteer with the Red Cross; or be an FHM High Street Honey. Well, yeah, those things were probably never going to be anyway, but you know what I mean.
I did Economics GCSE, and we learnt about opportunity cost. Every choice we make means a road that we didn’t take – something we missed out on. But, you know what? Every time I feel this happy, safe and loved, I realise that those choices are exactly what got me to this place, and I wouldn’t change a thing. The opportunity cost is negligible.
In one month and one hour, I will be walking down the aisle, on the arm of my new husband, and the road I won’t be taking will be far from my mind. Just thinking about the possibilities that lie ahead, and my best friend at my side warms my feet up no end.
