I was back in school. I had this amazing professor. I felt like he really believed in me and saw something that others hadn’t. This truly helped me regain some confidence and get laser focused in school.
I got really involved in yoga and started really focusing on my mental and physical health. I was certainly nowhere close to where I needed to be but I was making progress, moving forward.
That is when I met the one. When I was least expecting it I was introduced by a mutual friend to this guy. He intrigued me. He was laid back and had this strong sense of self. When I was finally not looking for something and had really just been focusing on rebuilding myself this man walked in out of nowhere. The relationship started off slow. For months we would talk and hang out a handful of times but for some crazy reason I just had this feeling about it and knew he was going to be the one.
I was working 2 jobs at the time, going to school, back into fitness, and had an awesome small circle of friends who really encouraged me in my faith. It was like it was too good to be true. I started hanging out with him in early December and things really picked up pace that following spring. We were inseparable at that point. Taking trips together, going to basketball games to watch some of our favorite teams, and enjoying the small things like finding recipes on Pinterest and just baking and watching movies together. We were together all of the time. I loved his family, I loved how he made me feel, and most importantly I really loved him. Once things picked up, they really picked up fast. I knew he was the one. He even took my childhood dog in when my mom moved out of my childhood home because I couldn’t have dogs in the apartment I was living in at the time. I could go on about him for days but I’ll just put this way, he is my dream man.
His strong sense of self was extremely attractive and he really helped me build some of my self esteem back. He saw in me what I could not see in myself at the time. He saw the pieces before they were ever the least bit put back together. He was and still is a complete gentleman, steady, patient, hard working, good head on his shoulders, and just all around my calm in some really tough storms. I still don’t know how I got so fortunate, but I thank God everyday for him.
It’s like things were finally starting to come together….
