I don’t consider myself a very private person. I’ve always been an open book and enjoy telling all of my wild and crazy stories about what I have experienced in this ride called life. As many of you know, my life has changed drastically over the past 10 months. I became a single mom (again), we moved to a farm 95 miles away, we bought animals, I started a new business, all of my kids started going to school, I bought a new truck, the list goes on and on. The one thing I haven’t talked about is one of the catalysts for all the positive changes I have experienced, that person would turn out to be my very best friend. Sometimes in life, you find someone who turns out to be everything you never knew you always wanted. In a strange turn of fate, we somehow found that in each other.
Never in a million years did I expect to meet someone who would not only be the male version of myself but also make me believe in having a soulmate. I never, ever, ever, EVER believed in that word. I also never thought there would be a single person who could heal all the hurt I had endured over the years. Makes me feel all gushy/ barfy inside to attempt to explain what this person has done for me but I owe it to him to try.
I’ve always believed in myself and felt like I could take on the weight of the world without any help.Shockingly, this summer I learned no one should walk alone and after a while, you will crumble. Having someone witness that shit show of a lesson and still stand by my side was amazing. I once read ” when a woman is loved the right way she becomes 10 times the woman she ever was “. When I first saw that I just about fell out of my chair. I’ve always been the type A person who didn’t need approval or any other person to ” make me” feel anything. I carried that ” f the world ” attitude for waaaay too long but over the past 9 months, it has slowly melted away.
The main reason I’m writing this post is for the one person reading this who may feel like you may never find someone special. We all know someone who is constantly saying “life is so crazy, so unfair, so messed up, I’m so broken, no one wants me, I have too many kids ( or cats ?), I don’t cook well, I’m not skinny enough, I’ve been married too many times blah blah blah. Good news folks, there is a lid for every pot and someone out there would trade all their yesterdays for you! Hang in there
We got married on May 19th 2018. It was the most beautiful day of my life 🙂
