At the young age of 27, I have been fortunate to experience so much.
My experiences have been both wonderful and heartbreaking, but I am fortunate for all of them.
From these experiences, I have discovered life, love, heartache and all that falls in between. I have traveled. I have taken risks. I have made mistakes. I have met wonderful people. I have met people that have taught me of who I want to surround myself with, and who I deserve to be surrounded by.
Most importantly, I have learned about love and the rareness of true love.
True love will come with challenges, risk and most importantly – a beautiful life.
Nothing is more accurate then the saying “nothing worth having is easy”. If it is worth having, you will be willing to conquer all challenges to achieve the end goal. If it is worth having, you will hold on regardless if it is difficult. If it is worth having, nothing will stand in the way.
The biggest risk I have taken in my life was taking the opportunity to meet someone that I knew, I would fall in love with. Not only did I know I would fall in love with this person, I knew that in order to have a future, there would be compromise and challenges. In my heart, I knew that there would be no compromise, or challenge that would be more difficult then the regret I would have not taking this risk.
So I took the plunge.
I fell, and I fell hard.
I also learned so much about myself, in such a short amount of time. I learned that I can give my whole self to someone and not lose one ounce of who I am. I learned that when you are truly in love, you accept everything about a person, nothing scares you, nothing can take that love away. I learned that you accept, and you are accepted. Most importantly, I learned that no amount of distance or time spent apart will change how you feel.
This year, I fell in love. I fell in love, in a way I have not yet experienced.
Most importantly I found my perfect love, with two people that are perfectly imperfect. Even though our love holds its own challenges, I know that with patience and trust – we will create our own perfectly imperfect life and nothing else matters.
to my perfect match
