Then I went for coffee with The Guy.
|We were so young!|
I was so naive.
The thing was: I couldn't stop thinking about him. He was funny and interesting and after a few dates I knew he was pretty special. I realized I didn't want him NOT to be in my life.
I think back to that girl I was back then. Scattered, emotionally damaged, wandering but on a holding pattern, and, honestly, a bit of a tool.
The Guy had a lot to do with me calming down and getting more focused. He helped me relax and be more comfortable with who I am, so I'm not so worried about being silly. I am a better person now because he has been in my life and I like to think he's better too.
That's what the me of 7 years ago didn't get. Love isn't about earth shaking and harps playing - it's about two people who make each other better versions of themselves. It's about little things every day that show love and appreciation.
|2014 - it's our year|
I'm glad that girl smartened up. I'm glad she took a chance.
I'm reaping the benefits.
And there are still a lot more to come.
