Having someone who supports you in your dreams is priceless. I am finding that out more daily. I will admit that I can get a little bit too driven at times.
I want to achieve so much and want so many things and on occasion I go so fast in life that I don’t stop and appreciate what is in front of me. I get it from my dad. Even today he sent me the following text message”
Is all well? Focused on short and long term goals and ambitions?
Do you have written down clearly defined plans?
Yep. I get it from him. Not that there is anything wrong with being driven to success but there is a time and a place for it and you also must look in front of you and appreciate it in the very moment. Mr. New is showing me that different side. He shows me it’s okay to slow down and enjoy the process. It’s okay to take a deep breath and not be going at 100 miles an hour all the time. He tells me I need to be patient and enjoy the process. We both learn from each other. In many ways me being driven is showing him that he can reach goals he never dreamed possible while he shows me that in reaching goals one must also appreciate the small things. It’s a good yin and yang.
The things he cares about blow my mind sometimes. The way he vacuums the basement because he cares my parents are coming and wants it clean. It doesn’t matter much to me but it’s something he does just because he cares. Last night at the UNI game someone brought over a pepperoni pizza. Mr. New took off every single piece of pepperoni because I don’t eat pork and he has stopped as well. He won’t eat pork at all anymore. He also stopped eating peanut butter since I am highly allergic. These little things mean so much. It shows how much he cares and I feel so blessed to have a man like him. On Friday I received a gorgeous bouquet of flowers at work…..just because.
They say when you are with the right person it just feels easy. Well this is beyond easy. It just fits and it fits in a way that nothing else ever has before. Yes we will probably have bumps in the road and battles we fight but I feel ….secure with him. Secure in a way where no matter what gets in our way we will find a way to overcome those obstacles together. I am still learning to trust and that is hard. It’s very tough to give someone so much power to hurt you…but somehow deep down I feel it’s certainly worth the risk.
A note left for me!
