There is nothing like a good love story.
Today marks my first Wedding Anniversary! A wedding is only a day, but a marriage is forever.
For this special occasion, I decided to write about love and relationships. Hopefully, I won’t make too many people sick. 😛
Healthy love is daily offering. It is a gift. It has conditions that shape the self and strengthen the other. Healthy love is feeling powerful and independent.Healthy love is patient, kind and accepting. Healthy love requires a tremendous amount of responsibility which involves communication on all levels and constant reflection.
My husband and I just fell into place seamlessly. We just fit and it was incredibly clear early on that we were supposed to be that way. Our personalities compliment each other well, and we bring out the brightest, most comfortable versions of each other. We appreciate and are genuinely interested in each other’s passions. The best love is the one that makes you a better person, without changing you into someone other than yourself.
We get along simply as friends, naturally and easily. We are content with our own playful banter. We make each other laugh on a daily basis and keep each other on our toes. We rock as best friends, which makes us an unstoppable couple.
We function well as a team, and also as 2 individuals with unique talents and interests. We work through the adversity of time, distance, and changing circumstances with baby steps, and diligent patience.

To my husband, you are handsome, but your beauty goes so much deeper. I value you for who you are on the inside. I appreciate all the little things. I notice everything, and I am grateful for even the smallest of gestures.

I am aware that my anxiety issues may seem insane to you at times. I’m sure it’s not easy being my companion on this road. Thank you for seeing that this is only one part of who I am. Thank you for encouraging me to find my way forward in my most vulnerable moments. You believed I could keep stepping forward when I wanted to give up.
You are a wonderful parent (biological and step-parent). Parenthood is very challenging. You are the children’s hero.
Thank you for working so hard and being so responsible. I recognise your contributions. I hope you never feel taken for granted. I am truly grateful for everything you do for me and our beautiful family.
I am so happy to have you in my life.

Anyone can use words of love, but actions reveal the true nature of a person. If the act of love doesn’t back up the person’s words, we’re not paying attention to what they’re truly saying.

My greatest wish is that everyone gets to experience true love. The kind you treasure on the inside no matter your situation. It’s a great day for dreaming of happily ever after.
