It’s my 5th Wedding Anniversary today!
The journey to love was a…hmmm…you’ve been on a rollercoaster right? It was something like that, but it felt like more screaming drops that clicking up the hill. 🙂
I had a lot of fun and met some really amazing people…but I wasn’t the right person for those relationships.
Funny thing is that Joel and I almost met a couple of times before we became friends.
I applied for and was offered a job at a company where Joel worked when I was 19. I didn’t take the job and we never met. He actually married a woman he worked with there.
Flash forward about many, many years, when he was in the process of separating from this relationship, we were at the SAME TABLE at a New Year’s Eve party. He was sitting on the other side of my friend and I never saw him or met him. He’s actually in one of our photos from the night.
I met him about three weeks later. It was a subzero temperature January night like we have here in South Dakota. A friend and I were meeting to listen to our friends’ band. I almost didn’t go.
Joel was sitting at the next table and we struck up a conversation and became friends. We finally saw one another.
Three months later we had our first date. Four months after that we moved in together. We got engaged less than a year later and married the next year. People say that it felt fast, but it felt right from our first date.
The point of my story is that what we wanted was there all along. We just had to become the person we had to be in order to tune into it.
Everything you want is already here. Fall in love with becoming the person who can see, tune into, embody who you want to be to receive them.
It’s all here for you. It’s true.
Let yourself become the version of yourself that has it.
Create a special week for yourself. See you soon.
