I saw his profile first…admiring his eyes and kind smile before closing the tab.
We message back and forth on site until we exchanged Skype ID.
The first time we chatted on Skype we spent over 8 hours straight just talking. Yes, 8 hours!
That was last March 2013.
We broke up…we made up…
This time around, last year I was waiting anxiously to meet him.
I flew all the way to Melbourne to meet him for the first time and was introduced to his lovely parents. This picture below is our very first picture together taken by a passerby in Lorne, Victoria. A picture I will always treasure forever.
Hard to believe it’s been a year already.
Within this one year span we’ve been through so much already – maybe a lot more than normal couple would. He has been standing strong besides me as I deal with so many things in my life. Things I can’t share here on this blog. He gives me strength to face the demons from my past. Really, words are not enough to describe how grateful I am for his love. This is the man that believes in me so much that I finally believe in myself too. This is the man that sees something in me I didn’t even know I had.
That is love…
He shows me what true love really is. It’s not just mere saying “I love you” a million times a day. It is compassion, giving, supporting, empathy…it is pushing one another to be the best version of individuals that we were born to be. It is knocking old beliefs that don’t serve each other. True love is many different things with him and for showing me that I am so grateful.
I am a truly lucky woman and he always makes me feel special, loved and supported.
Here’s to many more years together, D…I am ready for more joy, more love, more happiness, and like you eloquently said in your email this morning:
“I am so very proud of you My Darling Girl, I will look forward to more great times, more challenges, more fun, more disappointments, more love, more emotions and more of everything that says WE ARE TOGETHER IN LIFE .Thank you for this M, thank you for being my twin flame that helps keep my fire alight. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY.”
I am ready!
Thank you for being my best friend, lover, partner, teacher, guide, strength, my fiancé. Thank you for being you.
