I have always been a hopeless romantic ever since I was a kid. I grew up reading classic fairy tales and Nicholas Sparks’ books. And it made me believe that one day, I will also meet my prince charming — the one destined to me and we will have our own happy ever after.
But in reality, it will never be handed to you on a silver platter. You have to work hard for it. You will have to cry. You will have to experience pain. And you will have to meet all the wrong ones first.
At 29, I have my own fair share of experiences which made me who I am today. I have been cautious and I have always had my guard up because based on my experience, when you wear your heart on your sleeve, people will take advantage of you.
After all these years, I have finally accepted the fact that yes, I was broken. I’ve cried out everything I had in me which I should have done years ago. And I thought to myself that maybe, just maybe I was designed to be alone. And in that moment, I can feel that all the broken pieces of me were healed and I felt that I was whole again.
A few months back, I never really expected what’s in store for me. I have let the Universe take its course because I knew that what’s meant for me will happen at the right time.
It’s true that we don’t have any control over who comes into our lives. I have always believed in destiny, the signs, the stars and the Universe — and I made them lead me to whatever I think is for me.
But when I met this person, he helped me realize that everything in life — everything that we want to happen into our lives are our choice.
And I made the choice.
There are a lot of uncertainties in life and maybe what happened may only be coincidences or maybe these are just fantasies but I can feel it in my heart that this isn’t. No fantasy can feel so real.
I have no idea what tomorrow brings but this time, I won’t leave it up to the Universe to lead us the way because I am certain that our hearts know where we both want to go.
We may never know where our paths will take us but one thing’s for sure, this time; we will never go to places that we used to go to alone.
I am grateful every day that I met you.
You are an exciting adventure that I have yet to experience.
