I am proud to say that I’ve been with someone that I love for a decade. It’s a strange thing to say when I realize how young I still am. Ten years of intentionally sticking together – all chosen and three officially married.
Love is about intentionally choosing love. Love all the moments – messy, unkind, sweet, hilarious, unfortunate, exhausting, exhilarating, embarrassing, and everything else there is.
Life sometimes is about putting one foot in front of the other to just make it through. Love is about putting one foot in front of the other, sometimes kicking or tripping (in a loving way) the other person along the way, and knowing there are always more places to walk, hike, or run together. The direction may change, but it sure is nice to have someone alongside me.
