The love of my life : )
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Valentine's Day 2012 was one of the most romantic nights of my life. My beautiful and amazing fiance picked me up for dinner at Sushi Rock. During the drive, he played a CD he made of our favorite love songs. We sang the songs together and laughed. Two dozen roses were waiting for me at the table for two at the restaurant. We ate a delicious four course meal. (I didn't agonize about counting calories or feel guilty about how much I was eating, I just enjoyed the dinner.) We talked about how we met and many other wonderful memories. On the way home, we talked about our upcoming wedding and how fortunate we are to have found each other. I fell asleep happy in his arms.
Over the past few years, I have spent many days feeling bad about myself. Feeling depressed and unworthy was my usual experience. But today I woke up with a warm feeling in my heart. I thanked God for giving me a man that truly loves me and makes me feel so special. It makes me realize how much I have been focused on what's wrong in my life, instead of the many things that are going so well for me. From now on, Instead of looking in the mirror, seeing my flaws and then feeling bad, I'm going to look in the mirror and thank God for giving me another opportunity to live and love. I am so grateful for the blessings in my life, and I need to start living my life on the bright side. Life is so precious and too short to live any other way.
