I am excited to speak tonight at UNI for the College of Humanities, Arts and Sciences “Welcome Back Bash” for students and faculty!
I received a wonderful call from a woman named Celeste who was so warm and kind on the phone that I couldn’t help but say yes though sometimes the thought of public speaking gets my heart going a little fast!
It’s funny how many people think that Anchors would automatically be comfortable speaking in a group situation but it’s quite different to be in a studio talking to thousands of folks out there and then having them right in front of you! Regardless I am excited and though it’s past my bedtime–it’s something I am really looking forward to doing.
Today was a learning experience for Mr. New and I as we had a little tiff this morning. I referred to it as a fight until Mr. New brushed it off later and said it was simply a tiff. Learning experiences all around. I love that he takes something that I think is ten times worse and makes it seem so small in the big picture of our relationship.
In past relationships that were unhealthy fights were full blown out fights! When I got into a heated argument with a significant other-disrespectful things were said and oftentimes my mind would think the relationship was over. Sometimes a fight would last a few days with us not talking to each other and a deep divide was formed between the two that would never seem to fully resolve itself.
Fighting styles are an important aspect to a relationship because no matter how much you are in love or care for someone you are bound to disagree at times.
As Mr. New and I had our minor “tiff” this morning –there was a time after a rather tense text was sent by myself where he didn’t respond for about an hour. As I waited my mind went to the very worse situation. I wasn’t sure how to even deal with our first fight. Would we ever make up? How would we move past it. The past kept coming to my mind and all I could think about was how things have been handled in my prior relationships.
I should have known better. Mr. New was just a bit busy at work and after what seemed like ten years he sent me a text
I miss you so much and you make the me happiest man ever. I have never been happier and it gets better everyday. Can I please take you to lunch today?
Communication I am learning is essential to anything. I over communicate with him constantly but I would rather he know where I was coming from then hide my feelings. Everyday we learn more about each other but the best part is how we can bounce back from things and realize how much we care for each other.
A healthy relationship?
It’s such a foreign concept for me but boy do I finally realize what was missing.
