Has Your Wedding Become a Dangerous Distraction?

I have now ruined 4 pans in the last 5 months! Mind you, I have been cooking since I was about 10 or 11 and have never ruined even one pan in all the years I have been cooking.  And now in the last 5 months I have ruined 4 pans.  What is going on?  My husband thinks I am just trying to get him to buy me a new set of pots and pans.  I am really not.
I guess I am just distracted lately.  I will set something to cook on the stove and instead of staying in the kitchen to watch it, I wander off to read a book or to check my e-mail or see what is going on in the Facebook world.
None of these things are bad in and of themselves.  But my lack of attention has resulted in the demise of 4 pans, 2 exploding eggs, three near-fire experiences, the smoke alarm to go off twice, and me to seriously question my ability to cook.
Is it the same with your wedding planning?
Are you so distracted with all the things that need to be done that you can’t give your full attention to anything?  Do you have so many balls to juggle between work, school, family, church, clubs, planning a wedding and friends that you can’t seem to keep any of them in the air?  Are some of these distractions starting to become dangerous?
Wedding distractions can become dangerous when we focus too much on one thing and neglect the rest of our lives.
-We worry so much about not losing our friends that we alienate our family.
-We worry so much about our wedding day that we borrow money we shouldn’t just so we can have the “perfect” wedding.
-We neglect our relationship with Jesus and find that sin is creeping in.
-We try crash dieting to lose a few pounds and endanger our health.
-We become so focused on planning the wedding that we treat our husband-to-be as an errand boy instead of the love of our life.
The list could go on and on.  There are so many ways to become dangerously distracted that the most difficult part of your wedding will be staying focused and balanced as a person.  So how can you do it?  Check back tomorrow for the first 3 ways to keep your wedding planning from becoming a dangerous distraction.
