It is so easy to get lost in our own world, and not really care about your self, or your well-being. I sometimes get caught up with work, and school. I realized a lot of things that would upset me, or that would bring me happiness were fading. I started to care less, about others and about myself. I mean at some degree I would care, but I was not being present in the moment. There were people in my life who would sometimes drained me, and they slowly started to fade away on their own. I was not sure if that was the whole idea of being an adult, but along the way I started building new friendships. Friendships that I knew would last a life time. Friendships who are there physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I realized the true meaning of friendship was not always going wild, telling secrets, or talk about girl drama. When hanging out It became personal, and meaningful. It would nourished my soul, and I became more present with my friendships. I started to grow personally and professionally in my career. I do not know where my future is headed, but I know that I will be present, and aware of my senses.
My husband and I have been married for almost 2 years, and today marks 8 years of being together!!!! I seriously can’t believe how much time has passed by. It has been quite the journey. We have learned so much about each other. We have learned to love, to be patient, and to be more caring. Each relationship is unique we all have our differences. Trust me when I say relationships can get really complicated and messy. It is the reason we need to nourish our relationship daily. As the years pass by we acknowledge our flaws and weaknesses, so we accept them and help each other achieve our goals. Our first year of marriage was not easy at all. We really had to compromise in so many aspects of our life. Financially was one of them, and we managed slowly to budget, and invest for our future. We are both in school at the moment, and well it has been a little stressful. However, we make sure each week we have time for the both of us. We started a new routine each night before bed, and it has helped us in our relationship so much. Each night before we go to bed we will talk about our day, our goals, dreams, desires, and we read a little scripture following with prayer. Let me just say this routine has really helped our spiritual and mental health. It is important we are both spiritually, mentally, and physically healthy. In a relationship we are two in one. We are two different people who decided to be devoted to each other, and love unconditionally. I am not always motivated to keep going, sometimes I am drained, and stress can get the best of me. However, I know I have a partner who is supportive, loving, and lift me up when I feel at my lowest. At the end of the day, we need each other to keep on going in life, and to achieve all of our goal. Remember who you are, and your purpose of your own destiny.
