One of the greatest acts of self compassion I ever granted myself was saying yes to love.
I wasn’t quite ready, the timing didn’t go to plan, I had my fears and reservations and yet…I said yes.
Yes to a first date.
Yes to the possibilities, yes to the unknown.
I wanted more for my life and I believed in magic and not quite a fairy tale but an honest and true kind of love.
I said yes to having that for myself.
I don’t know how it happened.
I don’t know when things started aligning. (My guess is many moons ago, but more on that later.)
I don’t know why I went thru the things I did and now have what I have and who I have and how suddenly my life looks so different on a “feeling/experiencing” kind of level.
All I know is…you, my love… you are something else.
You amaze me.
You surprise me.
I would say yes to a first date with you a million times over.
I love you.
Here’s to a million more half years spent together, to growing individually and together, to adventures beyond our wildest dreams.
I am so happy to be by your side thru it all.
