The Speech of All Speeches

I am the maid of honor at my best friends wedding…in three weeks…OMG I literally just stopped typing, looked at my desk top calendar and recounted. THREE WEEKS. And I have a speech to write.
Normally, I’m a fine speaker. I don’t punctuate pauses with “um” or “like.” I can be witty, heartfelt, all around okay. But as the date grows nearer I realize that this isn’t just me standing in front of people talking. Which believe it or not, I actually don’t like doing. But me, standing there telling a large group of people how much I love these two people.
I love them so much I’ve been watching YouTube videos on “Best Maid of Honor Wedding Speeches” (Which as much as I love these people I am not rapping…) I’ve been going to the library for love quotes and etiquette books and so on and so forth. This means so much to me, that I’m over thinking it. So, today, I’ve decided to just sit down and write. Write about everything I know/love about them.
So my question to you is, when was the last time you sat down and thought about how much you really love someone other than your significant other? It really is a heartwarming experience. You should try it sometime.

When I’m Feeling Low…

… I sometimes look up Academy award-winning speeches. Have you ever watched the Academy Awards? Have you ever not gotten teary eyed or just felt so much joy for someone else?
So today. Today hasn’t quite been my day. I sat down, I did some work, then I googled one of my all time favorite speeches, Julia Roberts.
You can see her shaking and so incredibly happy she looks like she’s going to burst. When I see things like this my heart grows bigger. I feel complete joy. I feel honored to watch such a huge momentous, emotional moment. I feel like I’m a part of it, even though lets face it, I’m not. So, if you are feeling like a little pick me up. Then please watch this speech. There are others too, but this one takes the cake for me.
