You will ALWAYS be a celebrant

Being a celebrant

For you today, in case you needed to hear it.

You will always be a celebrant even if you’ve had to put things on hold.

Even if the pandemic has dampened your fledgling career.

Even if you haven't actually done a ceremony yet.

Even if you’ve got no or few dates in the diary that say otherwise.

Even if you don't feel like it.

Even if you’re feeling more like a stressed-out school teacher than a loved-up celebrant.

Even if the last time that you did a wedding was longer ago than you’d have liked.

Even if you're organising more postponements than leading ceremonies.

You are still a celebrant.

You are still a celebrant, even if you’re working as something else, whilst you see out this bad patch.

Even if you’ve got nothing to show for it right now.

Even if it’s taken a back seat because you can't focus on it.

Even if you’ve lost your mojo.

Even if you haven’t had a decent enquiry for a while.

Even if you feel like you can’t build up any momentum.

Even if being a celebrant now, isn’t the way that you like being a celebrant.

You are still a celebrant.

And you will always be a celebrant, because being a celebrant isn’t what you do, it’s who you are.

You will get back to being the celebrant that you used to be. You will be the celebrant that you want to be. The celebrant that you’re supposed to be.    

So don’t forget it. You haven’t got this far, too only get this far. If you can weather this storm, good things will be on the other side of it.

Sending you love and hugs.

Take care of yourself.
