We climb many mountains of relationship hazards but we slide down many times landing on our rear end but the important lesson is we came off that slope. As long as we continue to hold each other hands gliding down, there is hope we will survive.
We swam in the valleys of relationship shark desolations, avoiding sharp edge self-help obstacles of the defined norm of a relationship but the good situation is we defined what our relationship comprises, not the standard of relationship experts or ‘nonperts.’
We will go through our challenges: the ugly and the good but like the Ugly Duckling we will raise to the happy after occasion. We know that all the teasing and rejection was a process to get to the happy stage of our lives.
We heard the opinions of many people, some loose mouths with no sane judgement or reasoning about us but we placed them on the back burner. Instead we took the wise words of many others who made meaning contributions in our growth from strolling—>walking—> jogging traits of relationship.
We learn from the lessons of the past because they are necessary for look backing and correcting foolishness but we always remember to live in the present. Enjoying the joys of the relationship in the present because without the present there is no past.
We look forward to the future of us with a nervousness smile, wanting us to last but always mindful of losing ourselves to us. We work on our individual self to make sure that we do not suffocate each other and that only one person is carrying the relationship forward but we know there are always the annoying small foxes that may creep larger and larger if left unchecked.
Because we feed our love hunger, may we always have the ‘hots’ for each other. Let us always remember to show our affection, not just saying “I Love You” but some kissy touchy here and there. May we always be the Swann to each others Inghams, irresistible and reliable.
Because we agree to move forward with the relationship, may we always listen to each other’s opinions, ironing out the annoying traits that were not deal breakers. There is no need for shouting to get our points across, we are both adults willing to T A L K.
Because we agree to keep our relationship private but not secret there are many episodes that only us will have the pleasure or dissatisfaction of watching. We both understand that there are some details better suited for only four ears, not the eyes of too eager relations and social media.
