An exercise

A long time ago, I was at a cross roads in my life and was trying to make a hard decision.  I was told to close my eyes and imagine what I wanted my life to be like in 5 years.  I should use that to guide my choice.   I have used that often when I am feeling lost, to help me find my way.

The strange part is that although my life is similar to the one I imagined, there are pieces that I never could have dreamt of in a million years.  If you had told me 12 years ago that I would marry a guy like my husband, I wouldn’t have believed you.  I didn’t think I would fall for a guy like him, someone with interests so different from my own.  There are times when I wonder what keeps us together, what do we really have in common?  We don’t like the same things, we have different priorities, what draws us together? 

Because really, I think we might just be the best suited couple I know. 

He makes me laugh, and he challenges me.  Because of him I have become a stronger person, a more self-aware person.  I have experienced things and opened my horizons to experiences I never would have had otherwise.  He grounds me when I am starting to lose it, he is gentle when I need it, and gives me the shove when I am afraid to take the first step.   Although he drives me crazy with some of his choices (*cough*new truck* cough), it is those same things that draw me closer to him. 

And as I look in my garage, that is what I have to keep telling myself.
